Briton Alan Bunnell

It is with the heaviest of hearts that we lay to rest one of our young, talented, and wonderful children of God. May he rest in eternal peace with our loved ones beyond with God.

Briton Alan Bunnell came into this world on Sept. 2, 2002, full of light and love that warmed our hearts, blessed our souls, and brought our youth together under a blanket of love and happiness. May we be blessed with his smile and bright wonderful blue eyes forevermore. It mattered not how we felt on any given day in class, on the baseball or football field, or at any local fishing hole, because the moment Briton walked in, his smile set us at ease, warmed our hearts, and lit up our lives. 

His love for baseball and the Tri-County Cardinals, his fellow Shelby Coyotes, driving his Yoder, and most importantly fishing and Legos were not surpassed by his love of his community (our world) and his infinite desire to experience every bit of every day.

Briton passed away on June 7, 2020.
