Feb. 21, 1951 – April 18, 2023

Bobby Burkett, age 72, of Georgiana, passed away on Tuesday, April 18, 2023.

Bobby was a long time resident of Georgiana. He was a beloved husband, father, brother and grandfather. His family was his life. He was known as Pop to his grands and was always willing to take them to the ice cream store as a trade for back rubs and massages. He fussed when they all showed up and fussed if they didn’t come. He made friends easy. He was someone you could sit with on the front porch, drink a cup of coffee and oh yes, share a cigarette. His mom, brother and sisters were dear to his heart. But for most in the community he was known as the easy going X-ray guy.

A Gathering of Family and Friends was held Thursday, April 20, from 6-8 p.m. at Johnson Funeral Home. A Graveside Service was held at 11 a.m. Friday, April 21, at Ervin Family Cemetery, Georgiana, with Johnson Funeral Home directing arrangements.

Mr. Burkett is survived by his wife, Susan Burkett; mother, Mylan Stinson Burkett; daughter, Jessica Burkett Hansen (Justin); son, Wesley Burkett (Ashley); grandchildren, Mary Grace Burkett, Bethany Burkett, Kiersten Scroggins, Garrett Hansen, Jacob Burkett, and Christian Hansen; siblings, Susan Lynch (Wayne), Joy Moseley, Jan Pouncey (Roger), and David Burkett (Sara); a host of brother-in-laws and sister-in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins, other family and friends.

Mr. Burkett was preceded in death by his father, Ervin Burkett.
