Burton W. “Burt” Boushek, a longtime Waukesha resident, died Sunday, Feb. 7, 2010, at his home at the age of 85. He was born in Minnesota and served in the U.S. Army at the end of World War II.

On Nov. 26, 1949, Burt was united in marriage to Carol Byers in Fond du Lac; she preceded him in death in 2004. He worked for American Motors/Chrysler for many years until retirement. Burt will be fondly remembered as the ultimate Minnesota Vikings fan, a hard worker and a devoted husband, father and grandfather.

Visitation will be held from 10 a.m. until the 10:30 a.m. funeral service Wednesday, Feb. 10, at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 3801 W. Morgan Ave., Milwaukee. Burial will immediately follow.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to AseraCare Hospice, 6737 W. Washington St., Suite 3200, West Allis, WI 53214.
