Burt retired from Honda Transmission at Russells Point and was an Army Vietnam Veteran. He had a heart of gold and was stubborn at the same time. He loved his family dearly and would always find him playing games, coloring, or watching cartoons with his great granddaughter Jayda. He also enjoyed fixing up junk items and he would give the treasures to the less fortunate.
