A moment of silence please a WIREDAWG has passed

Burton L. “Burt” Holbert“

Welcome home, my child…you have fought the good fight of faith…you have run your race…well done, thy good and faithful servant!” were the words that greeted Burt Holbert as he went home to be with his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Tuesday, July 18, 2006.

Burton “Burt” L. Holbert of Panama City was born on March 19, 1947 in Honesdale, Pennsylvania. A career serviceman, he served 24 years with the United States Air Force prior to retiring. He then became re-employed in civil service at Tyndall Air Force Base, where he continued to be employed.

An active member of Cornerstone Family Fellowship, Burt’s welcoming smile – that greeted you long before he spoke will always be remembered and will be missed by all.

Left to cherish his memory are – his loving wife, Darlene, son, Karl, wife Monica, of Austin, Texas, daughter, Darnette of Smyrna, Georgia, mother, Dorothy Henderson, brothers, Richard Henderson and John Henderson all of Honesdale, Pennsylvania, brother, Thomas Holbert of Rockledge, Florida, sisters, Terri Wolfe of Charlotte, North Carolina and Jill Reyman of Jacksonville, Florida. Also, Burt and Darlene’s special “adopted” family, Mark and Michele Baughman, Matthew, Micah, Malachi and Marcus of New Mexico.

Burt’s family was his heart and they all know they were loved and treasured beyond measure. Burt’s love for his Lord Jesus Christ was evident in his daily walk to all his friends, co-workers, family, and even strangers. While having a medical procedure that involved a chest x-ray, he startled the technician by asking her “do you see Jesus in there?” Confused she questioned him and he replied, “well, you know that’s where He lives!” A gentle, humble man, giving, helping, reaching out to others was Burt’s joy. Whether friend or stranger, it mattered not; he just saw the need and desired to help. If Burt were here today, he would tell us all to “pay it forward…pass it on.”

A celebration of Burt’s life will be held on Saturday, July 22, 2006, 11:00 A.M., at Cornerstone Family Fellowship (122 Airport Road), with pastors Greg and Lecia Aldridge and Gregory Westermeyer officiating. A reception will follow at the church. *In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to “Cornerstone Family Fellowship – Mission Fund”.

He will be missed

“I am on the dirt frontage road to the internet thingy”

Take it slow and keep your head up. That way you can see the bullshit coming.
And don’t waste my time calling me a racist, cause I aren’t. So there!
