Burket Calloway Cusick, “Burk,” age 89, passed on August 8, 2017. He was a lifelong resident of Lenoir City, TN, and a member of Dixie Lee Baptist Church. He was a remarkable man and a loving and devoted husband, father and grandfather.

In March 1953, he married his betrothed, Reba Rayfield Cusick, who had been waiting at home for his return. Soon thereafter, they had daughter, Linda, and then son, Barry. Burket and his brother Bob owned and operated Cusick Builders until Bob became ill. They built many custom homes, banks, and hotels in the area.

“To-morrow, and to-morrow, and to-morrow,
Creeps in this petty pace from day to day,
To the last syllable of recorded time;
And all our yesterdays have lighted fools
The way to dusty death. Out, out, brief candle!” MacBeth
