James C. Burt, Jr.August 19, 1960 ~ April 14, 2017 (age 56)
BURT, JAMES CLARK, Jr.
Age 56, died Friday, April 14, 2017, surrounded by friends and family, following a catastrophic head injury two days earlier. Jim was born Aug. 19, 1960, the son of the late James and Mary Burt. He was a graduate of Churchill High School and Bethany College, class of 1983. At Bethany, Jim met his wife, Suzanne. They were 18. It took nine years of dating, a lot of procrastination and bribery from both sides of the family for him to pop the question. They married January 15, 1989, in the middle of a snow storm and remained together for the next 28 years. Jim frequented D's SixPax & Dogz, Vincent's Pizza, and Murphy's Tap Room. He loved his family, friends, his house, cutting grass, his cats, the Penguins, Pirates, Steelers, witty Facebook one-liners, traveling and usually Suzanne, his beloved. He leaves behind Suzanne, who misses him already; his brother, Charlie and his wife, Edie, their children, Chaz and his wife, Gina; Kaitlyn and her husband, Mitchell, and his niece, Michale. He is also survived by his sister, Dorothy Bosic and her husband, John, their children, Kara and Jack; as well as his brother, Bob and his children, Enzo and Frankie. He is also survived by his in-laws, Jack and Becky Elliott of Sebastian, Florida; and brother-in-law, Cliff Elliott of Raleigh, NC. He was preceded in death by an infant brother, Daniel. Thank you to the ICU team at Mercy Hospital, especially Susan, for the compassionate care. A Celebration of Life will be held at D's SixPax & Dogz, 1118 South Braddock Ave., Regent Square from 6:00 - 9:00 p.m. Monday, April 17, 2017. Memorial contributions may be made in Jim's name to Bethany College. His wife, who made many of his decisions, said he would like that.
