Sept. 14, 1992 - July 26, 2011
Brit Daniel Knapp, 18, died on Tuesday, July 26, 2011, at home, in Clarkston, Wash.
Born in Walla Walla on Sept. 14, 1992, to Daniel Delos Knapp Jr. and Sherri Lynn (Hunt) Knapp, Brit
lived in Walla Walla, Moses Lake, Sedro-Wolley and Battle Ground, Wash. and San Angelo, Texas, before
moving to Clarkston in 1999 with his family.
He graduated on June 4, as a proud member of the Clarkston
High School Class of 2011. He was a four-year varsity golfer for CHS as well as an active member of
FFA and woods and metal shop. Brit lived with a contagious passion and enthusiasm
that was impossible to overlook. He was capable of tremendous focus and tenacity, which was unmistakable
when he wanted something. He had one speed and didn't let little things like broken bones slow him
down. Brit was often heard insisting, "Hey! Watch this!" Whatever followed, you didn't want to miss it.
While he was charming, gentle and generous, Brit had a refreshing capacity for great silliness. One of his
greatest strengths was his ability to get along with others and make them laugh. Brit's priority was
spending time with the people he loved. He treasured time spent at the "rancho" in Ione, Wash., and was especially
proud of raising his well-behaved pup and best friend Bear.
Brit is survived by his parents, Daniel D. Knapp Jr. of Clarkston, Wash., Sherri L. (Hunt) Knapp of Panama
City, Fla., and Sara R. Archer of Walla Walla; sisters, Jordan A. Knapp of Clarkston and Hilary A.
Knapp of Spokane; grandparents, Daniel D. Knapp, Sr. and Sharon (Dury) Knapp of Ione; Jo Ann Chandler
of Ione; Lynn and Lois Hunt of Othello, Wash.; and many family and friends. He was preceded in
death by his grandfather, David Chandler of Ione, Wash.
A viewing will be held Tuesday, Aug. 2, 2011, from 9 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. at Merchant Funeral Home in
Clarkston, followed by services at 2 p.m. at Harvest Church, 2337 Appleside Boulevard in Clarkston. A
private burial will be held in Ione. In lieu of flowers, the family would deeply appreciate
memorial contributions made payable to Merchant Funeral Home, PO Box 107, Clarkston, WA 99403 in
honor of Brit D. Knapp.
