Steve Burt, RIP

Post by TommyTrojan »

I got an email this afternoon from a friend who said that Steve Burt, a longtime supporter of HS football and other sports in Orange County, passed away shortly before noon. I don't have many details except that his 3 sons were there with him in the end. He will be greatly missed.

Kind of wondered why he didn't respond much about Matt Barkey staying at USC or even whether he would. He took several pictures of Matt at MD that I remember well.
Wiley, you were one of a kind and will truly be missed. Fight On with all the rest of the Trojans in the sky!!

You will be missed my friend.

May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face. May the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again, May the Lord hold you in the palm of His hand.

Wiley you jousted well, Sir! As a frequent foil for our erstwhile millionaire, this loss hits hard. I will miss the Wiley barbs and jabs, his love of HS football. I cannot figure why I'm crying, but I am. Just like Wiley to have the last laugh. Peace, brother.

Sad news. Prayers for a legendary HOF member of the OC Boards...

For a time, in his early years, Wiley lived in Crown Point, at the edge of Mission Bay, and across from Sunset Cliffs, in Point Loma, where I grew up. I put up a picture once, on the old Student Sports board, of a spot where we body surfed. He PM'd me, and said his brothers went to PLHS, and wanted to send it to them.

Heck of a photographer, good sense of humor, and quite a collection of classic photos that Wiley, posted here over the years.

Rest in Peace, Wiles...

Crown Point, back in the day...

I don't see how you can just die like that. There should be a forum policy against that

Wow, what a shock! Wiley was always one of my favorites. We met on several occasions - forum gatherings and football games. I considered Wiley to be a friend, not just an acquaintance. RIP, my friend.
