Burt shoveled off his house roof. He had a stroke early morning 2/6. Burt never regained conscious and passed away on 2/8/11. Burt will be missed by his family, friends, and gas buddy's.

Difficult to believe that it has been 3 years since our pal Burt passed away. Can only imagine that he is baking muffInns for Carme's Inn daily and using his snowthrower to cut a path in the snow. You are missed much and remembered well. RIP buddy.

A nice cool refreshing August day. Burt would have loved this weather! It was cold enough on Mt Washington to have had snow last night!

Rest my friend, the Nor'easter that will wallop New England today is INN honor of you. You'll see it from a different place. I will see it from the end of a shovel. Unfortunately.

We all miss you Burt55. A true gentleman that made a big move from his wonderful town of Medford, MA to the White Mountains of NH. Mt. Chocorua is not quite the same without you in the neighborhood Burt! God Bless you and all your fine family.

Thanks MidnightSun for posting this rememberance to Burt!!!

Miss you much Burt.

It's been an entire year. The pain is much less. You are missed just as much as the first day. Think of you every day at Carme Inn in NH. RIP my friend.

It was this date one month ago that Burt died at the Portsmouth NH Regional Hospital. After shoveling off his roof on the 5th, he had a stroke early morning on the 6th, and never regained consciousness. He is missed greatly every day. Every visit to Carme's Inn in NH reminds me of Burt. I met him and his wife at three GB get together's. My comfort is knowing he will be happy for eternity in Heaven. Sure miss my pal!

You're missed. I expect to see you at the INN and you aren't there. I know you're in a better place, though.

Burt was a anchor at Carme`s Inn. Tried to arrange a gas buddie get together last summer when I was planing a trip to NH. Never made it to NH but Burt sure tried to make a get together happen.
Rest in peace my good friend.

Planned to go to Burt's Church & Funeral Service in Effingham, NH at 11 AM and leave here by 9 am. Some thing bit right into me very early this morning and made me stay close to the restroom. It has been continuous all day. Some kind of stomach bug or something. Didn't even do my planned x-c skiing, snow shoeing, or much of anything today except for two short road walks. Until I had to return inside quickly. Rest in peace, Burt. We will never forget you!

************************February 12, 2011********************************

This is Burt's day, the day he was laid to rest, a day of remembrance and celebration of his life, especially the GB good times and the February day in 2010 when we were blessed to enjoy Burt's company at breakfast in NH.
I will forever remember that day.

I already miss his humor. Burt was often the butt of his own jokes. That says a lot about a man's character, to be able to laugh at himself amongst others.

Rest in Peace Burt and God bless your family.
