Warm and friendly, Burt deeply loved his family and did everything he could for their happiness and well being. His infectious smile, deep voice and caring attitude will be missed, even by those who weren't able to share enough time with Burt. How lucky we have all been to have someone who made saying goodbye so hard. We never really stop missing someone, we just live around the gaping hole inside is.

I’m so very sorry for this tremendous loss. Even though we’d only met occasionally over the many years since I first met Sip, I knew - as does everyone who knew him - that Burt was truly special. I will add my own one-word “Burt story” here Rubberneck. I can still hear him laughing.
