Bear was a great guy, all throughout my childhood I would see him during Thanksgiving when he hosted Wilma's family (Reece family) reunion.
He was always kind to everyone & showed an interest in Wilma's family members young an old alike. I have great memory's of those times & he will be missed.
Thanks Leo & Dean Reece (Chattanooga TN.)

I had some wonderful days at the Britt home while growing up in Biscoe NC. I use to shine Bear's shoes at Cravens Barber Shop in the 50's. Bear was always a great guy.
