Willie Britt III

December 12, 1989 ~ March 14, 2019 (age 29)

God called His Angel, Master Willie B. Britt III, home on Thursday, March 14, 2019. He was born to Sandra Middleton and Willie B. Britt, Jr., on December 12, 1989, in Orlando, Florida.
Willie was known as “Three” to family; “Smurf” and “Coach Will” to friends. Master Britt was a 2008 graduate of Ocoee High School in Ocoee, Florida, and an employee of Tacachale Center.
He was a die hard “Florida Gator” fan and an avid sports lover, who was born to a family of basketball players and became a shooting prodigy, even before he began to walk.
Little did we know, he would also become an outstanding baseball pitcher, who could not consistently hit the plate because he would not wear his glasses.
At age twelve, he was asked if he wanted to play football by a coach driving through the neighborhood recruiting kids for The City of Orlando Youth Football Team. That coach, James Welch (known as “Coach Amp”), mentored him and became instrumental in Willie becoming an unblockable force as a defensive tackle and a goal line fullback that changed the city’s rules because he couldn’t be stopped. He went on to become an exceptional high school football player, whose playing career ended due to a knee injury.
Seeing his dreams unfold led him to become the passionate coach that he was. His life will always and forever be celebrated in the hearts of all who loved him, and his genuine spirit will continue to inspire and change lives.
He leaves to cherish his loving memories: son, Willie B. Britt IV; mother, Sandra Middleton-Cato (Leon); father, Willie B. Britt, Jr.; sisters, Tasha Middleton-Owens  and Tarkesha Taylor; nieces, Dedreana Owens and Jennifer Johnson; nephews, Jaakarrii Middleton, Jeremy Johnson, Jordan King-Johnson, and Kyler Taylor; godbrothers, Donald Jones, Dontae Jones and Dontavious Stringfield; godsons, Calvin Johnson, Tremain Johnson, and Cortez Johnson; special friend, Mary White; and a host of aunts, uncles, cousins and more.
