I knew Don,Betty and Dan thru their cousin, Russ Kimberland. We used to go out to their farm and play basketball in the barn Unfortunately, we moved from Washington many years ago, so I haven't seen any of the family in years Ihave many fond memories of the whole family. My condolences are heartfelt. Rest in peace, Don.

My sympathy to the family of Mr.Burt. I had the opportunity to be a student in his math class. He was a very good teacher. Of course Mr Burt was kind enough to teach students chess via chess club. The chess club was a bright spot to many struggling students. He reminded his students math was essential.

I'm so sorry to hear of Mr. Burt's passing. Sending my sincere condolences to his family. Mr. Burt was my high school tennis coach and he was so great! He always had a smile and encouraging words, even when I would run in to him every so often years and years after graduating. Rest in peace, Mr. Burt.
