Obituary for Dwane Winfree (Briggs)

Dwane Winfree (Briggs), eldest son of the late Shirley Winfree and George Briggs, was born on December 14th, 1957 in Brooklyn, NY where he spent his childhood and attended the New York school system. He also served his country in the United States Army Reserves.

Dwane departed this life on May 13th, 2019.

Dwane loved his family deeply and wholeheartedly. He was a lover of people, clothes, music and dance. Dwane was the person to bring love and laughter wherever and whenever he was around. He was the one you could count on; he could fix anything and everything around your house, and was a master at all he knew. If he had to walk a hundred miles to get to you he was there.

We will all miss his laughter and making others laugh. We will miss him dancing at all the family functions and how he showed his love to all of us.

Dwane leaves to mourn his passing: his father, George Briggs; his three children, Shaquana, Latrice and Jameek; five brothers, Leno, Kevin, Rolando, Malik and Nathan; his aunts, June Johnson with whom he had a special bond, Donna, Pennie, Doreen and Annie; his uncles, Luckie with whom he spent most of his life, Steven, Mervin, John, Richard and Diamond; his significant other, Mildred Laboo and her family; nephews, nieces, and a host of relatives and friends who were special to him in one way or another.

Dwane, we love you and all miss you dearly.

Done in Love and Profound Sorrow,
The Family
