Roger Britt passed away Sunday, October 7, 2018, in Bozeman, Montana, after a courageous fight against an incurable disease.  He led his life as a friend to all, giving in everyway he could.  Whether opening his home to those who needed a place to go or sharing his gifts with many friends, Roger did so with a ready smile, a warm hug, and words of generosity and love.  He was a devoted husband to his wife, Karen Britt, their two children, Marian Britt and Charles Jr. (Chuck) Britt.  Roger’s granddaughter, Lyla Britt, brought joy to him and his family. 

Roger was born September 22, 1945, in San Francisco, California.  Growing up in Richmond, California, he graduated from Richmond Union High School, attended Contra Costa College, and then entered the Army.  He served as a medic during the Vietnam War.  After his discharge, he met his loving wife and married in May 1971.  In his early years of marriage, Roger decided to become a realtor, a field perfect for his friendliness, charm, and honesty.  Roger became a successful realtor and started his own business in Benicia where he and his family remained for 40 years.  During his time in Benicia, Roger participated in Kiwanis, Indian Guides, Babe Ruth and Little League, Board of Realtors, Benicia Board and Chamber of Commerce.  Roger and Karen and family moved to Bozeman, Montana, where Roger worked again as a realtor while also finding time to hunt with friends and his son, Chuck.

Roger had a passionate love of hunting, where he traveled with his hunting buddies, seeking deer, elk, moose and waterfowl.  He established many more friends on these trips, never forgetting the closeness that develops through such experiences.  He also loved spending his time with his family and friends.  His family has many fond memories of their many travels together. 

Roger is survived by his loving wife, Karen; devoted children, Marian and Chuck; granddaughter, Lyla; his sisters, Julie Mosquedo, Bonnie Flesuras; his brother, Robert Mosquedo; his niece, Lisa Newcomb; and Karen’s large family.  He is preceded in death by his mother, Barbara Hunt. 

His ready smile, warm hugs, and generosity will be missed by all.

A service will be held at 1:00 p.m. on October 27, 2018, at Sunset Hills Cemetery, Bozeman, MT, at the Veterans Wall.

In lieu of flowers the family requests donations be made to Warriors and Quiet Waters Foundation, 351 Evergreen Dr STE A, Bozeman, MT 59715 or HRDC for the Blueprint Home. 32 S. Tracy Ave, Bozeman, MT 59715.
