Obituary for Robert 'Bob' Burkett

Robert ‘Bob’ Burkett, 78, of Panama City, passed away Sunday, May 13, 2018. He was born in Pasco County, FL June 7, 1939. He was a devoted Christian who loved going to Gospel performances. He also enjoyed fishing, hunting, FSU football, drinking coffee and working. He connected with children because he was young at heart. If you were to ask Bob his age, he would jokingly say, “I’m 39 years old with 39 anniversaries.”

He was preceded in death by his parents, Charles and Rosa Burkett; two sons, Charles Robert Burkett and Charles Shannon Martin; three brothers, Tommy Burkett, Wilbur Burkett, Elton Burkett; and four sisters, Dot Emanuel, Edna Emanuel, Octavia Nichols and Margaret Ann Brown.

Those left to cherish his memory include daughter, Annie Pauline Swartz of Panama City; son, James Edward Martin (Linda Marie Meyers) of Panama City; nine grandchildren; two great grandchildren; and two brothers, Leroy Burkett and JM Burkett.

A funeral service will be held 3:00 P.M., Thursday, May 17, 2018 in the chapel at Heritage Funeral Home with Pastor David Gurganus officiating. A visitation will take place one hour prior to the service. Interment will follow at Lynn Haven Cemetery on a later date.
