A few years later they were blessed with two just as rowdy children Cary and Caitlin. David loved his family and friends and sharing many stories with them, even if they were a little, Okay a lot, over exaggerated. And he especially liked spending time outdoors doing the things he loved like fishing, camping, sports and sort of singing music. David was preceded in death by his parents and one nephew Charlie Britt. And is survived by his wife of 33 years Kim Britt of the home. Two children Cary Britt of Linwood, KS and Caitlin Britt and her fiancé Don Reed of Manhattan, KS.
