Rev. Burton C. Lebo, 86, passed away Tuesday, March 31, 2020 at Croatan Village Assisted Living. A native of Northfield, NJ and raised in Millersville, PA, Burton was a US Coast Guard veteran and was a professional soccer player. He excelled in sports and often entertained family and friends with special sports moments that he had gathered throughout his journey in life. It was through those stories that he often taught principles of living a godly life. His love of people and physical education led Burt to serve in the YMCA and as pastor in Wakefield and Haverhill Mass., and in McAlpin, FL. He devoted his life to God and was a minister for 30 years. He retired in 2013 from his church in McAlpin, FL, but continued to minister to those around him throughout the remainder of his life. A celebration of Burt's life will be for the family on Monday, April 6, 2020 at Brice's Creek Bible Church at 2:00 PM, with Pastor Barry Teague officiating.
