  • Guestbook
Dick slipped into the arms of his Master on June 3, 2021. He was born April 10, 1941, in Seagraves, TX to Ray D. and Neva F. Burnett. He married Nancy Snider on December 18, 1960, with that union lasting 60 years. His parents and two brothers, Wayne and Lloyd, preceded him in death. The memorial service will be at Redbud Baptist Church, 8th and Slide Road, Lubbock, TX on June 19, 2021. Visitation will be in the fellowship hall from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m., with services starting in the auditorium at 3:00 p.m. Bro, Carlos Hinojos and Bro. Syl Moore will do the service.

Dick began at 12 years of age working with his dad in the Burnett Cabinet Shop in Plainview, TX. In those years he learned and perfected an enormous talent in woodworking. He worked for several people along the years, had a shop of his own at one time, then finalized that talent with Texas Tech University retiring in 2007.

He was a charter member at Redbud Baptist Church in Lubbock for 40 years serving in many capacities including as a deacon and a Sunday School teacher. There were many friends there, plus numerous friends in other phases of his life, and many friends within his family. Dick was a concerned person about others, patient and quiet, but could also be a very happy, witty personality.

Dick is survived by his wife, Nancy, with 60 years together. He was Pop to three sons, Richard Todd and wife Trina of Indianapolis, IN, Robert Tye, and wife Cindy of Lubbock, TX, and Ray Trent and wife Valerie of El Paso, TX, all of whom loved him very much. There are six grandchildren, TJ, Hailey, Austin, and Travis Burnett, Amber Zapata and Jeremy Frausto; five great grandchildren. He is also survived by his sister, Evelyn Mitchell and husband Lonnie of Ferris, TX and a sister-in-law, Donna Burnett of Burleson, TX; as well as many nieces, nephews, and cousins who were very special to Dick.

Our praise now is Dick is at the feet of Jesus Christ and is very content there.

It is because of Dick Burnett that I came to know and accept Jesus into my heart. He explained to me what it meant to be saved and made sure I was ready. He was always there for me when I needed someone to listen. I will never forget his perfect smile and handshake we did everytime we saw each other. Heaven gained an amazing angel.

Dick was one of my favorite people in this world. He shared his light and love to so many people. My heart is broken. I loved getting my hugs and kisses from him at church. He also helped me in so many ways and we considered him and Nancy part of the family. He will be missed beyond measure. Sending my love and prayers to you all. I don't know the pain of loosing a spouse but I do know the pain of loosing your dad. May God hold you all close and give you peace. Remember that He is there for you through your grief and that grief has no time limit. Prayers for you all.
