Obituary

Michael W. Britt, M.D., 61 years of age, went to be with his Lord and Savior on March 24, 2024. Dr. Britt was born November 3, 1962, in Austin, TX. He was the son of a football coach and an art teacher who moved frequently and settled in Medina, Texas, where Mike developed his love of football playing for his father, Coach Britt. Mike attended Angelo State where he played college football for 2 years then set aside the sport he loved to focus on his pursuit of a medical degree.

A 1990 graduate of the UTMB School of Medicine, Dr. Britt returned to UTMB for a clinical research fellowship in surgical infectious disease following his internship at Baylor College of Medicine.  He completed his orthopaedics residency at the University of Missouri -Kansas City and a fellowship in Adult Reconstructive and Arthritis Surgery at the Florida Orthopaedic Institute. After beginning his professional career in private practice, he later joined the faculty at Louisiana State University – Shreveport and returned to UTMB as a faculty member in 2018. In 2023, Dr. Britt retired from UTMB and relocated to Corpus Christi where he worked for Coastal Orthopedics at the time of his passing. Mike also played semi-professional football for the South Texas Heat and was a devoted Texas Longhorn fan.  He was called to medicine and loved everything about orthopedics.  He leaves behind a group of brothers, sisters, and friends in the medical community who he grew up and trained with. The relationships he had with his patients, and the love and respect they had for him, are a testimony to the giving heart he is.

He is preceded in death by his father, Joe R. Britt, his mother Virginia A. Britt, and his sister Kimberly Britt Eoff. He is survived by his wife Kristi Britt, his children Jordin Gonzales (spouse Arturo), Kimberly Britt, Jonathan “Reagan” Britt, Meredith Britt, his sister Lisa Britt Shope (spouse Lanny), brother-in-law Sam Eoff, his grandchildren Arturo Gonzales III, John M. Gonzales, Gavin M. Gresh, Elijah J. Gonzales and Noah M. Gonzales along with many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to St. Andrews by the Sea or the charity of your choice.
