Charles was born March 27, 1970, in North Kansas City, MO, the son of Bill and Linda (Cole) Brittain. His parents preceded him in death. He was a very active member and trustee of Kansas City Church. Charles was an avid lover of music, road trips and sports; but no team heard his cheers more than his children's Special Olympics team, the Northstars. He could be found rooting on the sidelines of every Northstars event year-round.

Survivors include his wife of 17 years, Erica; children Danan and Megan; step-father, David Ayrton; step-sisters, Rene, Kathleen, Tracy, Christian and Shannon; Erica's sister, Jill (Stephen) Holman; several nieces, nephews, other family members and countless friends. He will be greatly missed by all.

Charles, you had an impact on so many lives that I am sure you where not fully aware of. I have known you for 10+ years as a caregiver, your dialysis FNP and friend. You never failed to kept me up to date with your children’s latest adventures and pride in accomplishments. Erica, you saved his life with your love. As the apostle Paul stated “ I have fought a good fight, I have finished my race (course) and have kept the faith” .. that’s you my friend.

Charles, we have known each other for about 7 years. You have taught me many things, I feel we taught each other some things. You never ceased a moment to get one in, jokingly of course and I laughed every time knowing how you totally got how I was and I got you 🤗. You shared stories with me and just even if we talked about the weather I looked forward to seeing you and chatting and taking care of you twice a week for 7 years❤️It’s hard to let you go but I know this is where you always said someday you would make it to. Rest my friend in eternal peace and shine down on us and give us light when we need it. I will be forever grateful for being able to tell you for the last time when I saw you I loved you and cared for you!Forever in my heart ❤️
