Lawrence Benjamin Nottingham began his journey on January 16, 1944 in Machipongo, Virginia to Severn and Quinton Nottingham. Nubbie, as he was affectionately known, was the youngest of nine children, five brothers and three sisters. He was preceded in death by his brothers, Claude, Quinton, and Severn Nottingham and sisters, Rosa Carpenter and Gertrude Morris.

Nubbie was educated in the public schools of Northampton County in Machipongo, Virginia. After high school, he entered in the U. S. Armed Forces. First serving in the Marine Corps in 1967-1969 and then the Navy from 1969-1970.

Nubbie was an avid lover of horses and enjoyed many days at the races. He was proud to be the co-owner of Nottingham Transportation Company for many years.

During the past years, Nubbie endured many health challenges, but always had a smile on his face and a genuine joy in his heart. He always let people know how much he cared for them. His positive outlook on life was contagious. He was blessed with many friends that made his life complete.

He leaves to mourn: his loving wife of forty-two years, Fannie; eleven children, Annette (George) Sample of Newport News, VA, Melissa (Theutis) Wharton of Nassawadox, VA, Sylvester (Lynn) Upshur of Hampton, VA, Michael Bailey of Cape Charles, VA, Sean Wharton of Accomac, VA, Reginald Johnson of Eastville, VA, Rodney (Lorraine) Conquest of Laurel, MD, Kevin (Rene’) Conquest of Upper Marlboro, MD, Tammy Conquest of Lanham, MD, Michael Brooks of Charleston, SC, and Keith Conquest of Herndon, VA; sister, Amanda Nottingham of Machipongo, VA; brothers, George Nottingham of Machipongo, VA and Edward Nottingham of Pahokee, FL; ten grandchildren, that he was extremely proud of; two special friends, Whitesy Banks and George “Sonny” Ames; a host of nieces, all of whom he loved with three being very special to him, Sandra Chandler, Diana Carlos, and Kathy Custis, nephews, other relatives and friends.

His life was a blessing, his memory a treasure.
He is loved beyond words and missed beyond measure.

Nubbie's passing is a sad loss and leaves a void for family and friends! They can come to the aid of each other in coping with his absence! During sad times I have been comforted by reading various articles from [975 languages] >Bible Teachings>Bible Questions Answered>Life and Death>Hope for the Dead>What is the Resurrection? Jesus Christ’s death made it possible to see Nubbie again! I wish to express sympathy and comfort to all who are missing Nubbie.
