City of Death


Burt (Burto) King passed away in April of this year due to Covid. Get your shot people. Burt lived a long life growing up during the Depression, serving in WWII, and a long and distinguished career in Aerospace where he was involved in many of the watershed moments in space exploration and manned flights to the Moon. Missed will be the “Board Meetings” with his cadre at the Yacht Club where the better minds solved all the worlds problems.

Survived by his son Thadias King and daughter Victoria King, and son Chris King who passed before him, we will miss you Dad. Burt’s legacy includes, seven grandchildren, and four great grandchildren. A world traveler, skier, yachtsman, scholar, and man about town, he was loved by the ladies, and they loved him back. Have a fair weather journey my friend and see you on the other side.
