Steve Britten Death, Obituary – We are sending along the tragic news of Steve Britten’s departure with a heavy heart because our friend and colleague will be much missed. Our condolences go out to Sue and her family during this difficult time.
Steve had a deep concern for the AICWA, as well as for its members and the profession in general. The AICWA will be grateful to him for the rest of time for his support.
Steve was a long-time AICWA member, as well as a Councillor for the organization, a trainer for the organization, a member of the CPC Committee, and most importantly, he was our friend. On April 27th, 1954, he was born in Wyatt, Missouri, to the late William Curtis “Bud” Hust and Margie Robison Hust Vanpool, both of whom have since passed away. Although Steve spent the majority of his life in Sikeston, he was born and raised in Charleston.
He had served in the United States Army and was currently working as a forklift operator. He had spent the most recent few years of his life in Poplar Bluff. Several members of his family, including his son Jason Hust, his daughter Kacie (Kyle) Gilliland, and his grandson Stephen Oliver Hust, all of Sikeston, as well as a number of cousins, are still living.
Bobby Gene Vanpool, his stepfather, passed away before him. He was predeceased by his mother and father as well as his stepfather. At a later time, graveside ceremonies will be held, during which military honors will be presented to the deceased.
McMikle Funeral Home, located in Sikeston, is the establishment in responsibility of making the necessary arrangements.
Vale Steve Britten
