John Burt

John Burt passed from this life to a better one on Tuesday, Aug. 24, 2010.
      Funeral: 2 p.m. Friday at South Main Church of Christ, 201 South
Main Street, Weatherford. Visitation: 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday at
White's Funeral Home, 130 Houston Avenue, Weatherford.
      John was born in Seminole, Okla., on Nov. 3, 1934, but lived his
adult life in Fort Worth, until moving to Weatherford eight years
ago. He was a member of South Main Church of Christ in Weatherford, where
he was lovingly known to all the children as Mr. John, "the
sucker man".
      John retired from a teaching career in 1995 and enjoyed retirement
taking care of his goats. He also enjoyed woodcarving and was a
member of the Wood Chippers in Weatherford. John loved the time he had to
spend with his friends and was fortunate to have many. John was loyal and
kind and had a great sense of humor. He was a man of faith and family and
he lived a life that honored others.
      John is survived by his wife of 51 years, Carlene, and their
daughter, Laura Minchew and husband, Alan, of Tennessee, and son,
Greg Burt and wife, Judy, of Weatherford. He was also the very
proud Papa to his four grandchildren, Kate and Grant Minchew and
Sadie and Wesley Burt. John is also survived by sisters, Kathy
Barham of Weatherford, Joy McGehee and husband, Joe, of Garber,
Okla.; and numerous nieces and nephews.
