Reginald Burt Obituary,Death – On December 27, 2021, Reginald Darnell Burt, also known by his nicknames Reggie, Dada, and Baby, passed away at the age of 66. He was from Houston, Texas. His parents, Virginia Williams and Johnnie Burt Sr., welcomed him into the world on the 31st of July, 1955, in Fort Wayne, Indiana. Reggie was a high school basketball All-American who went on to play for Cal State Fullerton in Merced. His entrance music at Cal State Fullerton was “Fire” by the Ohio Players, and rumor has it that he once crossed paths with a hitman while riding the train.
After that, Reggie relocated to Houston, Texas, where he met Karen Dunbar and eventually fell in love with her. They attended graduate school at Houston Baptist University together back in the day when it was hip to do so. They traveled the world together, visiting places such as Jamaica, St. Martin, Puerto Vallarta, and Germany, where they put their beer drinking abilities from the midwestern United States to good use. After exhausting themselves with travel, they eventually found a place to call home, bought a house, and settled down to raise their two daughters, Kari and Jami, as well as their grandson, Julian.
In the early 1980s, Reggie and a business colleague established a company that would later become known as Bainum Dunbar and develop instructional software. Following the completion of that endeavor, he went on to pursue a career as an internal auditor in the oil and gas industry. Reggie was a superb dancer with a smile that could make anyone feel better about themselves. He was also not afraid to laugh at himself. He had an intense love for his family, which he demonstrated through the excellent food that he prepared for them. Cheesecake was his area of expertise.
Reggie was a huge movie fan, particularly of kung fu pictures, which led him to enroll his whole family in karate classes. He was a devout Catholic and a man of religion who never failed to spread happiness and laughter to those who were fortunate enough to be in his company. It is likely something that he would like you to know, and that is that he once triumphed in a game of Settlers of Catan.
Reggie Burt is survived by his devoted wife of forty years, Karen Etta Burt, his daughters Jami Marie Burt and Kari Andreah Burt, his granddaughter Julian Michael Burt, and Kari’s wife, Michelle Qwist. He is also survived by his grandson Julian Michael Burt. His mother, Virginia Taylor, as well as his brothers and sisters, Sharon Burt, Gregory Burt, Anthony Burt, Dean Wyatt, Terry Burt, Gary Burt, and John Burt Jr., as well as a large number of cousins, aunts, uncles, and other relatives survive him. John Burt Jr., Terry Burt, and Gary Burt are John’s sons.
It was his father, Johnnie Burt Sr., as well as his elder brother, Larry Burt, who passed away before him.
