Finley Eugene Burt


Finley Eugene Burt

Finley Eugene Burt, age 82, of Centreville, Nova Scotia, passed peacefully away on November 15, 2021, surrounded by his loving family, after a courageous battle with cancer. 

Finley was born to Martha (Critch) Burt and Andrew Burt in Peterview, Newfoundland on June 13, 1939. Left to mourn are his wife of 62 years, the love of his life, Elvie (King) Burt; sons, Rick (Debi), Randy (Hope) and Trevor; brothers, Calvin (Joan) Burt, Aubrey (Daphne) Burt; sisters-in-law, Mary Miner, Betty (Cecil) Phillips; grandchildren, Candace (Brandon), Naomi, Samantha (Calvin), Irwin, and Victoria; as well as many nieces, nephews, other relatives, friends and colleagues.

Finley graduated from Eastern Pentecostal Bible College in 1971 and went on to pastor in full time ministry for more than 50 years. Finley’s life and ministry were defined by his unchanging kindness, devotion and integrity. He was devoted to his family, to God, and to others. He never met a stranger because his love for people was always the catalyst for a new friendship. 

A service celebrating Finley’s life will be held on Friday, November 19, 2021, 2:00pm (AST) at Kingsway Assembly, 242 Belcher Street, Kentville, Nova Scotia. Provincial vaccination guidelines will be honoured.
