So sorry to learn of the loss of your Dad. From your description of him and his life on your FB post, he was obviously more than just a Husband and Dad; he was an exceptional man that God put on earth to touch so many others, and no doubt, Mission Accomplished! Thoughts and Prayers for the entire Family.

Kristi Pls accept our family deepest and heart felt condolences, God Bless and stay strong
Deeply saddened to hear about the loss of Burt -- he was a very kind man and had a heart of gold. I have very fond memories of him while my brothers and I were in Boy Scouts Troop #120. Burt was always there to help prepare us boys for what the world had to offer. I distinctly recall when Burt has us boys in his garage teaching us how to solder copper lines and fittings -- to help us attain our Plumbing merit badge. To this day, I can honestly attest that that training I still utilize today in my own home. May Burt rest in peace as he deserves it. My condolences to the family during this difficult time.
