Obituary

The Lord our God, called his disciple, Leonard Ira Brittingham, Sr. to eternal glory. The Lord smiled on this man of faith and said, “Leonard come home, and tell me a story.” The story began on a summer day, June 3, 1940, when he was born to the late Daniel Asbury and Louise Dennis Brittingham. Leonard entered his new chapter on July 25, 2019.

“Big Leonard or Big L,” as he was affectionately called by his friends and co-workers, received his formal education in the public schools of Worcester County. Leonard retired from Tyson Foods in Berlin, Maryland (Formerly Chesapeake Foods and Hudson Foods) after forty-four years of service. Big L, was a hardworking, dedicated man who faithfully transported his coworkers everyday back and forth from Tyson Foods; better than a “postman,” through the rain, sleet, and snow until he retired, he performed this task.

A lifelong member of St. James United Methodist Church, his Christian education was the foundation of his faith and commitment to God, family, and church. As a true servant of the Lord, Leonard faithfully served in several capabilities, such as the United Methodist Men, Trustees, and Mass Choir.

He loved listening to his scanner and going to all of the accidents. Leonard thought he was part of the Fire department and the EMTs. The majority of them knew Leonard so well, because you could count on him always being a witness at the scene of the accident, arriving before them. Everybody has a story to tell and Leonard loved to tell old stories to his family and reminisce about the good old days. A devoted father, grandfather, great-grandfather, uncle, and friend., Leonard possessed a personality which radiated his strength and brightened the lives of his family, church, friends, and co-workers.

Left to continue his legacy of love and cherish fond memories of his life are his children, Peggy Ann Cropper of Clarksville, DE, Charlene and Donnie Brittingham, both of Pocomoke, MD, Roxane Rounds (Felix) of Berlin, MD, Leonard Brittingham, Jr. of Pocomoke, MD, and Wynesha Brittingham of Laurel, DE; three step-children, Sandra Bell (Kenny) of Snow Hill, MD, Antonio Best (LaShana) of Goldsboro, NC, and Keith Jones of Princess Anne, MD; seven grandchildren, Felix Rounds, Jr. of Berlin, MD, Laffeon Brittingham (Kiasha) of Bayville, NJ, Destiny Rounds of Lanham, MD, LuQuesha Brittingham of Salisbury, MD, LuQuan and Patrice Brittingham, both of Pocomoke, MD, and Diamond Rounds of Berlin, MD; two great-grandchildren who lit up his world, Khloe and Logan Brittingham, both of Bayville, New Jersey; two devoted nieces, Tamara and Tracey White, both of Pocomoke, MD; brothers-in-law, Oscar Cropper, Jr. of Pocomoke, MD, Linwood Cropper of Philadelphia, PA, Stanley Cropper of Princess Anne, MD, and Oliver J. Brittingham (Louise) of Hampton, VA; sisters-in-law, Mayola Matthews of Pocomoke, MD, Gloria A. Mason of Salisbury, MD, Patsy Cropper of Princess Anne, MD, and Cleola Smith of Westover, MD; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and fond friends.

Leonard was preceded in death by his parents, Daniel Asbury and Louise Dennis Brittingham; two wives, Mary Lee Cropper Brittingham and Grace Ellen Corbin Brittingham; two brothers, James Lee and Daniel Brittingham Jr., and three sisters, Naomi Mae, Thelma Brittingham, and Barbara Ann Brittingham White.
