Phillip Privott, Jr.

Sunrise: March 19, 1984

Sunset: November 14, 2022

Here’s the part where you read about my life. Well, I’m Big Pimpin’, The Midnight Mover, a man’s threat and the ladies’ pet, that’s it, that’s all. Nah, I’m just playing.

I was born March 19, 1984, to LaCountis and Phillip Privott Sr., along with my twin sister Phyllis. One thing about me is that I always went against the grain. I became a Prince and Dennis Rodman fan at a young age, and I love listening to old-school music.

 I attended Norfolk Public Schools for most of my schooling and will forever be a Norview Pilot. I graduated from Lakeland High School in Suffolk, VA. While in high school, I participated in wrestling, track and field, and football. I then went on to attend and complete the Aviation Institute of Virginia. It was my goal to work on aircrafts; however, my health took a decline.

But don’t worry, I went on to live my life. I got married to a beautiful woman Robin, and we were blessed with two beautiful God daughters, Kiki and Leah.  Most of my days were spent enjoying coffee with my in-laws, Ms. Pearl and Mr. Robert, watching tv, and enjoying my teams play. This is where I plug the best NFL and NBA teams Go Lions! Go Clippers!  Laughing and making people laugh is something that I enjoy, and hope you all continue to do it while I am gone.

Please pray that God comforts my family as they mourn my loss.  I leave to cherish my memory. My wife Robin Privott, my parents LaCountis and Phillip Privott Sr., my sisters Phyllis Shepherd (Scott), Purina Privott, and Vonyelle Johnson, my god daughters Kiara Parker and Ka’Leah McKinley, a special aunt that is like a mother, Emma Cornelius, and a host of aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.

Please use one of my last social media posts as a guide and allow God’s power to provide strength during this time.

November 14, 2022: Folks gotta realize that when human strength ends, that is when God’s power begins.

November 14, 2022: Nobody has closed a door that God has opened.

November 13, 2022: What God gives you daily is a chance and a choice.

November 12, 2022: I pray that you see the light in all that darkness.

I won’t say goodbye but see you later. I love you and until we meet again.

P.S Batman out—Love Phil
