Burton Kohn


Burton Norbert "Burt"

Burton N. "Burt" Kohn, age 93, passed away on Friday, April 25, 2014. The son of Albert and Ida, he was born in Dundee, MI on October 19, 1920. He was a graduate of Macomber High School and joined the U.S. Marine Corp. serving his country during WWII. He was a machine

repairman for Jeep, retiring in 1978. Burt was privileged to have enjoyed retirement longer than he worked. However, he never really stopped working. He was always tinkering in the garage, working around the house or helping the grandkids with a project. In fact, while he was in assisted living, he was often found trying to fix things around there, like his own walker. He was a member of VFW 2898. He enjoyed long country drives and traveling to Florida. More than anything, Burt loved to spend time with his family and cherished their time camping.

He is survived by his

children, Thurlow "Bud" (Judy) Kohn, Gary (Juanita) Kohn, Diane (Malvin) Smith; 8 grandchildren; 14 great- grandchildren; 1 great-great- grandchildren with another one on the way; brother, Del. He was preceded in death by his wife, Virginia in 2012; son, Dennis in 1999 and siblings, Lois, Irene, Ruth, Vivian, Ollie and Kenny.
