1973 – 2022
Putnam – Christopher Glen Britt, 49, formerly of Wilkinson St., passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, July 27, 2022. He was the husband of Allison (Durst) Britt. Born in Putnam, he was the beloved son of Deborah (Pizzetti) Giovanni and the late Adrian Glen Britt.
Mr. Britt worked as a carpenter and handyman across much of New England.
He was a kind and bighearted man who could make a friend anywhere he went. Always quick with a joke and a laugh, he was loved and well-liked by many. He adored spending time with his kids, the outdoors, fishing, coaching the local little league, and his pets. Chris loved a bonfire with good music and his booming voice will be greatly missed every Sunday cheering on the Patriots.
Christopher is survived by his wife, Allison Britt and two children Elysse and Sawyer of Putnam; his mother, Deborah (Pizzetti) Giovanni and his stepfather Albert of Pomfret; his brother, Zachary Britt and his wife Katheryn (McGrath) Britt, and his niece Lenyx Britt of Woodstock and his brother Nicholas Giovanni of Philadelphia, PA as well as his niece Emma and nephew Jackson Hayden, and dear friend Hope Fitz.
Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to visit with Christopher’s family from 6:00PM to 8:00PM on Friday, August 5, 2022, in the Gilman Funeral Home and Crematory, 104 Church St., Putnam, CT 06260. For the memorial guestbook visit www.GilmanAndValade.com.
In lieu of flowers to honor Christopher, the family asks any donations be made in the form of checks to Nutmeg Acres Wildlife Rehabilitation (19 Victoria Drive Moosup, CT 06354) to support Christopher’s love of animals and nature.

My Mom ran into Chris a couple of years ago in Putnam, and their conversation concluded with Chris saying, “Please tell Jen that I think of her often.” What a deep and considerate person he was.
Only the good die young. He was one of the. Good ones,. He will be missed! I’m so sorry.
