Britt Nielsen

May 12, 1981 — June 11, 2019

Britt Kenneth Nielsen - Wonderful son, grandson, brother, uncle and friend passed away unexpectedly on June 11, 2019 from a heart condition.  He was born on May 12, 1981 to Larry Kenneth Nielsen and Cathy Simmons Cenci.

Britt was kind, thoughtful, loving and caring and he had a great sense of humor.  He was known as "Uncle B" to his niece and nephew and he loved them and they loved him right back.

He was currently living with his Grandma Simmons whom he shared a special bond with since birth.  He lovingly moved in with her to help take care of her and it was good for both of them and a true testament of his character.

He was a Utah Jazz fan since he was a kid and never missed a game.  The only thing he enjoyed more was a Jamba Juice or maybe a pair of shoes.

We love you more Britt and will miss you everyday until we are reunited again.

He is survived by his father, Larry Kenneth Nielsen, mother, Cathy Simmons Cenci and stepdad, Kurtis Cenci.  Brothers, Taryn Jake Nielsen and wife Valerie, Bryce Allen Nielsen and wife Natrisha.  Nephews, Jayson Nielsen and Kesler Nelson and niece, Mayley Nielsen.  Grandmothers, Jolene Simmons and JoAnn Nielsen along with aunts, uncles and cousins.

Preceded in death by grandfathers, Allen Russell Simmons and Kenneth Nielsen and uncle, Russell Simmons.
