Burt Halley Minnick ,73, of Pinehurst, Idaho went home to be with Jesus on April 3, 2021. He passed away at home with his wife and son by his side. Burt was born on December 22, 1947 at The Dallas, Oregon, son of the late Roy Minnick and Irene (Richardson) Quayle. At a young age, Burt found a love of hunting and fishing which he pursued all his life.

In 1982,  Burt met the love of his life in Hermiston, Oregon, Cathy Widner, at a Christian Singles event. They married in 1983, at Forest Grove, Oregon and raised their blended family of 6 kids in Hermiston.

Burt worked for the city of Hermiston for almost 30 years, starting at the Sewer Treatment Plant and retired with the Street Department as Street Foreman. He was a hard worker and a great friend to his fellow workers.

During his years of living in Hermiston, he volunteered with the Hermiston Fire Department, Archery Club and Hermiston Little League along with being an active member of New Hope Community Church.

Upon retirement, 2009, Burt and Cathy retired to Pinehurst, Idaho where they loved the mountains and the friendly community. They joined Real Life Ministries where Burt served with love and kindness.

Burt was a great kind hearted man, who loved his wife and family very much. He appreciated his community, loved the outdoors, and was a big influence in many people’s lives.
