I am giving his eulogy:
Our dear dad, Dale Blake Burnett was born to Ida Thayn and Joseph Garrett Burnett in Desert, Utah on february 20, 1934 in a railroad house in the 12 miles north of Green river in the middle of the Desert. Later in his life he moved to Salt Lake with his parents where he graduated from Granite High School. Although he attended The university of utah for a short time, his love has always been for the blue and white of BYU. Dad met the beautiful Carole Moulton when she was 16 and he was leaving on his mission to the Eastern States. Upon his return, theu married in the Salt
Temple on June 11, 1957, making her
"THE" Carole Burnett.
Dale served in many church callings for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, including Bishop of the
11th Ward. He worked for Buehner block
but retired from Beneficial Life as a computer programer. Dad made many life
lomng friends during his tenur there.
Dale loved woodworking, fishing, camping, and spending time with family.
Although he lapsed in to a coma on sunday, you could tell by his twitching he
could hear everyone that was around. We kept a constant vigil but it wasnt
until Monday night when all 8 children spent the night with my mom for the
first time in 34 years that his heart finally gave out. He loved his family and cherished every minute
we spent together. Murray

Reid Burnett. Preceded in death by his parents and sister, Carma Moore.
