June 21, 1929—June 12, 2019
Donald E. Britt, Don as he was known to all, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, June 12, 2019, with his family at hospice. Born June 21, 1929, in Kelso, WA, where he grew up and graduated from Kelso High School in 1947. Don served in the US Army and worked at the Longview Fibre Company for 42 years. He was a longtime member of the Kelso-Longview Elks, Pioneer Lions Club and the American Legion. He enjoyed spending time golfing, fishing and camping with his family. His homemade potato salad will be missed almost as much as he is.
Don is survived by his wife, Donna, of over 62 years; their daughters, Sharyl (Kevin) and Carol (Vilas); a brother, Ronald “Ron” (Norma); seven grandchildren, Jeff, Jesse, Lisa, Jamie, Stacie, Sean and Hailey; and eight great-grandchildren. Don was preceded in death by his daughter Janice, his parents and his sister Betty.
At Don’s request, there will be no services. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Pioneer Lions Scholarship Fund.
