His Legacy… Delvin Robert Burkett, 87, passed away January 2, 2021.  He was born on May 5, 1933, in Wyandotte, Michigan to John Burkett and Pearl (Seiloff) Burkett. Delvin married the love of his life, Barbara (Minton) Burkett, on June 20, 1975, in Whitmore Lake, Michigan. He was a loving husband, father and grandfather.  Del was well loved in his community and considered the LCWCC club his extended family.  He was a Buckeye fan and would tease his friends when Ohio State would beat Michigan.  Del also spent time going hunting and fishing but most of all, enjoyed being around his friends and family.  He will be remembered as a fun loving, caring and “super” man.
