We lost our loving husband, father, grandfather and dear friend Dec. 29, 2012, after a very short battle with cancer. Born in Russell, Minnesota to Harold and Nina Burt, he was the eldest of seven children. He married his high school sweetheart, Maxine, in 1956. Together, they raised four beautiful, loving children.

Siblings, Clinton Burt and wife Joan, Bernie Burt and wife Marie, Kathy Robb and husband Ron, and Ginger Burt, all residing in Minnesota, along with Jim Burt and wife Sue of Wisconsin, and Dallas Burt of Oklahoma. He also had nieces, nephews, and a multitude of friends who loved him dearly.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Harold and Nina Burt, sister Myrtle Louise, and grandchildren Joseph Burt, Candace Burt and Crystal Boley.
