Lewis “Logger” Britton, age 66, died at the Wallowa Memorial Hospital in Enterprise, Oregon, on Saturday June 2, 2018.
Born March 29th, 1952, in Enterprise, Oregon, he lived his whole life in the Wallowa Mountains. Although he maintained a house in Lostine, his real home was in Promise at the family homestead. His career in logging took him to some of the most beautiful areas in the Pacific Northwest and his love for hunting and fishing took him far beyond, but he always came back home.
His survivors include his daughter Tiffany Britton of West Richland, Washington, and his son Dustyn Britton, granddaughter Caitlyn Britton and grandson Andrew Britton of La Grande, Oregon, as well as his brothers Paul (Sharon) Britton and Perry Britton, and several cousins. He was preceded in death by his father Dewitt Britton and mother Marcella Lewis Britton.
A memorial will be held at 11 a.m. on July 7th, 2018, at the Promise Cemetery. There will be a potluck luncheon to follow at the Promise Grange Hall. Please bring your favorite potluck dish, your stories, photos and a Hamms or two.
