KENT – Herbert “Burt” Garrett, age 67, passed away on January 9, 2021.  Burt was born on November 25, 1953, the son of the late Terri Cooper and Alfred Garrett Sr.

In 1980, Burt met the love of his life, the late, Brenda Premo.  Together they resided in upstate New York.  In 1993, after Brenda passed, Burt relocated to Kent, OH where he resided for the remainder of his life.  Burt was kind-hearted and always tried to make a difference by showing his love to his family and friends. He enjoyed telling jokes and pulling pranks on anyone who would fall for it. To Burt, you were not just a friend, you were family.

    Where do I even begin? Burt and I were co-workers at The Press of Ohio in the mid-90s and we remained friends to this day. He watched my daughter grow from a baby to a woman and met my grandkids. I live in Las Vegas now but he and I made it a point to visit together every time I visited Ohio because he was my friend to the end. I love you, Burt and I will miss you and our chats. Thank you for being a true friend all these years.
