In Memory of Bill Britt: Pioneer, Innovator, Motivator, and Friend

With great sadness and fond memories, we mourn the loss of Bill Britt, Founders Crown Ambassador, Founders Council member, and former IBOAI President. Bill passed away on Wednesday, January 23, 2013 in Jacksonville, Florida.

Bill Britt and his wife Peggy began their Amway business in 1970 and since that time, built one of the largest global IBO organizations in Amway history. Their business includes an extensive presence in the United States India, and China. The Britts first became Founders Council Members in 1998 and qualified at the Founders Crown Ambassador level in 2002. Bill was kind, caring, and passionate about making the business better for all IBOs, and gave freely of his time, talent and experience during his 19 years of service to the IBOA International as Vice President, President, President's Cabinet member, Board Ambassador, and Emissary. Bill  strongly believed in order to become the greatest leader, one must become the greatest servant. This personal philosophy guided Bill in everything he did. He'd often speak to others about the importance he felt it had in his business as well as his daily life.

Bill Britt will be greatly missed but never forgotten. He was loved and respected by his family and friends, and by thousands who found success in the Amway business because of him. He leaves behind a legacy of inspired leadership fueled by his philosophy of serving others and his passion for making a difference in people's lives.

Bill is survived by his wife, Peggy, who continues the Britts' business legacy. Our thoughts and prayers are with Peggy, the Britt family, their friends and all the IBOs touched by Bill's kindness, wisdom, and faith. In lieu of cards or gifts, the Britt family has requested donations be made to any of the charitable organizations Britt World Wide supports, including U.S Dream Academy and Easter Seals.
