John Burt, 50, of St. Charles, died Friday morning, Jan. 20, 2017, at Seasons Hospice in Rochester.

John was born July 5, 1966, to Wally and Marlys (Thompson) Burt in Yankton, S.D. John's mom died when he was 11. He then moved with his family to Las Vegas. He later returned to Yankton where he met Tammi Durham. They were married on May 16, 1986. In the early 1990s, they moved to the area to be near family. John worked as a bricklayer, and was a member of the Bricklayers and Allied Craftsman International Union, having earned journeyman status.

He loved to fish on the river with Tammi and his sons, Jarred and Brent. He also enjoyed gardening, canning, barbecuing and smoking meats. John was feisty, strong and stubborn, with a strong desire to take care of all in his family.

Survivors include his son, Jarred Burt of St. Charles; his wife, Tammi; a sister, Jennie Underwood of England; and his father, Wally Burt of Plainview. He was preceded in death by his son, Brent on Aug. 27, 2015.
