Charles “Charlie” Lee Britton, 59, of Peculiar passed on Wednesday, January 13, 2020 at his home.

He was born April 25, 1960 to Nelson Britton and Marjorie Woodside Britton in Browning, Missouri.

Charlie attended Linn County R-1 School, and was a member of the class of 1978. He and his high school buddies started the band Mean Streak where he was lead guitarist.

Charlie recently invested in a motor home he enjoyed “improving,” and was looking forward to taking it on the open road to see the country. He rode his motorcycle whenever and wherever he could, and still enjoyed playing music on his collection of guitars.

He is preceded in death by his parents, and brother, Clinton Britton.

Charlie is survived by his sons Charles Eric Britton of Independence, MO, and Anthony (Lindsay) Britton, of Belton, MO, and his Uncle Elmo Britton of Purdin, MO.

A Memorial service will be held at the Purdin Community Center in Purdin, MO on Saturday, June 5th, 2021 at 11:30 a.m. The service is being held by his sons Eric and Anthony Britton.

Memorial donations can be made to the West Peculiar First Responders in Charlie’s name.
