No services are scheduled at this time.

I worked with Britton about 11 years at Sematech, ATDF, and STVC. I haven't met such a person who is gentle, soft-spoken and nice like him. He was always calm in any situation. I learned a lot from him from the way he talked to and treated people. I am very sad to hear that he passed away. My prayers and thoughts are with his family and all people who loved him.

Britton Ray Birmingham, age 53, passed away unexpectedly at home in Austin, July 17, 2015. His untimely death is a shock to his friends and family and we are heartbroken by our loss.
Britton was born May 11, 1962, in Port Arthur, Texas, to Dorothy and Guy Birmingham. He was a new little brother to their young daughter Dana. His father’s job with Texaco took the family to several locations in Texas, as well as Baton Rouge, LA and New Canaan, CT. Britton graduated from Forest Park High School in Beaumont, TX, and completed a Bachelor’s degree in Mechanical Engineering at the University of Texas in 1984. He worked as an engineer with Dupont for several years and returned to the University of Texas to complete his PhD in Materials Science.
Britton had a long career in engineering, semiconductors, and optics. He was an Austin resident for over 25 years and loved his close-knit Hyde Park neighborhood. He was kind hearted and generous, quick to lend a hand to his neighbors or transporting rescue animals. His interest in mechanical engineering extended to tinkering with cars and bicycles. He was proud of his 1965 Chevy pick-up and enjoyed cycling the hills around Austin including participating in the MS150 bike ride for several years.
Britton is survived by his parents Dorothy and Guy Birmingham of Houston, and his sister Dana Padgett and her husband Mike Padgett, also of Houston.
A private burial will take place at a later date.
Memorials may be made to the charity of one’s choice.
