James Burton Britton, a retired Baltimore City parole and probation information technology specialist, beloved father and brother, died of cancer Thursday, Sept. 17, 2015, at University Medical Center in Baltimore, Maryland. He was 73 and went by the nicknames "Jim," "Moose" and "Pop."
Jim was born in Brockway, Pa., to loving parents Burton A. and Jean M. Britton (deceased).
He is survived by his five stepchildren and their families: Beth and John O'Connor, Dede Ondishko and Kim Halter, Terri and Bob Smith, Julie and Mike O'Connor and Chris Ondishko, with 14 grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren, of whom he was especially fond. His caring siblings and their families survive him as well: Mary Ann and Jack Mihok, Kathleen Britton, Joan and Tom Higginbotham and Tom and Jackie Britton.
In the eyes of his family and friends he was the most kind, generous and warm-hearted person known. He enjoyed travel, bicycling, motorcycling; in his youth, he played football, basketball and tennis. He supported his family and their friends at sports events and was known for his kind words of encouragement or consolation, always in the most humorous and humble manner.
Jim graduated from Thiel College in Greenville, Pa., with a BS and accepted work in Baltimore, Maryland, in 1964, where he lived his adult life.
He was a member of the Army Reserve Corp out of Williamsport from 1964 to 1968.
