Founder of Brittain Machine dies at 81

When Dewey Brittain started his machine shop in 1966, all he had was a lathe, a bandsaw and a milling machine. But over time, Brittain grew a one-man operation into Brittain Machine Inc., a business that supplied parts to Wichita's major aviation companies and at its peak employed more than 300 people.
