While working in construction for many years, Burt was given the opportunity to travel the world, working in many different states and even out of the country for a period of time. Through his extensive travels, Burt was able to make many lasting memories that he enjoyed sharing with everyone.
Burt was an avid outdoorsman, and he especially enjoyed fishing, rabbit hunting and deer hunting. His greatest joy in life was sitting on his back porch, drinking coffee and talking to his family and friends. Above all, Burt was a wonderful husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and brother, who loved his family with all his heart. He will truly be missed by all who knew and loved him.
