Lavon Hathaway Brinson

April 15, 1943 — November 18, 2020

Lavon (Joe) Hathaway Brinson, Jr., 77, peacefully transitioned into eternal rest November 18, 2020.

He was born April 15, 1943 in Savannah, GA and moved to Charleston in 2014. He was the son of the late Hazel Grizzard Brinson and Lavon Hathaway Brinson, Sr. He was also preceded by his brother, Leslie Brinson.

Joe attended Groves High School in Savannah. He labored for many years as a crane operator at Porter Huggins. He attended Awaken Church with his family. He found enjoyment as an avid sports fan, supporting his children and grandchildren. Baseball was his therapy as he put it. His greatest joy emanated from yearly playing and entertaining as Santa Claus with his wife Cheryl playing Mrs. Claus for businesses, families, schools, organizations, and his favorite CURE Childhood Cancer.

Besides his wife Cheryl Knipe Brinson, he is survived by his son Cody Matthew Brinson of Charleston, SC, a son Joseph Troy Brinson (Alicia) of Beaufort, SC, a stepson Harold Alan Strickland (Frances) of Lyons, GA and daughter Christina Megan Brinson (Toby Britt, Jr.) of Charleston, SC. He was blessed by the birth of grandchildren, Lyndsey Brinson Varnes (James), McKenzie Brinson Brown (Joshua), Kristen Brinson Moore (Dylan), Katlyn Strickland, Elisa Strickland, Harrison Strickland, Cash Crone, and Chloe Crone. He boasted of several great-grandchildren, with more on the way. Additionally, there are nieces, nephews, and cousins. All were deeply loved.
