Herbert Billups, Jr

The dawn of life began for Herbert Billups in Virginia Beach, Va. on September 24, 1948. Sunset occurred for him on Friday, November 23, 2018, as he quietly, without a whimper made his transition from mortality to immortality. He was the son of the late Herbert Sr. and Sue Billups.

Beanie, as everyone affectionately called him was from the Lake Smith area of Virginia Beach and attended school in the Virginia Beach School System. He was a retired supervisor from Clancy & They Construction Company after many years of service. A few of Beanie’s favorite activities included fishing, baking, being around his grandkids and spending quality time with his “Boo”.

Beanie was predeceased by three siblings Lawrence, Levy and Tommy Billups.

He leaves to cherish his memory, wife Barbara Boyd-Billups; daughter Benita Thornhill (Michael) of Raleigh NC; son Herbert Billups III; daughter Shannon Williams (Percy) of Virginia
Beach; daughter Alexandra Mitchell; Siblings, Alberta Wright (Maurice), Betty Branch (Ulysses), Clarence Billups all of Virginia Beach; grandchildren, Deone Stinson, Deshaun Stinson,
Denae Stinson, Jessica Floyd, Michael Thornhill, Vaniyyah Billups, Zyionnie Billups, King-Herbert Billups, Herbert
