Burt, James F. age 90, of St. Louis Park, died peacefully on August 30. He was preceded in death by his beloved wife of 61 years, Audrey, and his son, Gary. He is survived by his second wife, Alice; his children, Susie (Tom) O'Brien, Tom Burt, Jim (Margaret) Burt, Tim (Renee) Burt, Sally (Jerry) Kraft, Michael (Robbie) Burt, Missy (Mike) Stahlecker, David (Lisa Kelly) Burt, Tedd Burt (Lisa Vang); 21 grandchildren and 16 great- grandchildren. Jim attended DeLaSalle High School and a year at the University of Minnesota where he was a member of the Gopher football team. After serving as a Hennepin County Deputy Sheriff he pursued a career in auto sales, first at Malkerson Oldsmobile, then later at Prestige Lincoln Mercury. That was the beginning of a 45 year career as an award-winning salesman. But we are most grateful for his dedication as father, grandfather and great- grandfather. He was loving, caring and a wonderful example to his children. We will dearly miss him. Mass of Christian Burial 11 AM Tuesday at The Church of The Holy Family, 5900 W. Lake St., St Louis Park. Visitation Tuesday AT CHURCH after 9:30 AM. Memorials to the American Diabetes Association or Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life. A private interment at Lakewood Cemetery will follow.
