Lawrence E. Burt passed away into his eternal rest on January 18, 2021 at his home of 16 years in Detroit, Michigan. We believe he accepted Christ just prior to his passing.
Lawrence was born on May 9, 1936, in Talladega, Alabama to the union of Clarence Burt and Mary Taylor Burt. Lawrence was preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Mary Burt; three brothers, Clarence "Hamp" Burt, Jr., Samuel Burt and Joseph Burt; and three sisters, Ophelia Burt Rutledge, Ruby Burt Wofford and Carrie Burt Brown.
Lawrence enlisted into the military right after graduating high school at the age of 18. He served in the US Air Force for 3 years. After completing his enlistment in 1960, Lawrence relocated to Detroit, Michigan. He dedicated many years to Chrysler Motor Corporation until he retired in 1995. Lawrence loved his music. Jazz, blues or gospel music could be heard throughout and outside of the house. He was a big sports fan supporting the Boston Celtics and the Green Bay Packers. Lawrence enjoyed spending time with friends and family and attending family reunions.
Lawrence leaves to mourn his passing: his children, Lawrence (Eileen) Burt of Southfield, Michigan, Alisa Burt, Annette Black and Niecy Tumpkin, all of Detroit, Michigan and Evette (Lester) Gardner of Dublin, Georgia; one brother, Raymond (Emma) Burt of Winston, Georgia; and a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.
