Lewis Bradford Burgett passed November 6, 2020, at age 92. He was born in Guntersville, Alabama, and grew up with friends he treasured for life.
He played football at East Mississippi Junior College and graduated from Auburn University in civil engineering. He earned his masters degree at the University of Tennessee, worked at TVA and met and married JoAnn Noah.
He joined NASA in 1958 and worked on projects including launch pads and the Vertical Assembly Building. The last 30 years of his career were spent with the American Institute of Steel Construction as a regional engineer and educator.
At home, he coached T-ball, led Boy Scouts, taught his children how to ride a bike, hit a baseball and throw a football. But most of all, he loved their wife.
At 92, those he knew and loved have gone before. He is survived by his children, Amy and Bradford Burgett and grandchildren, George, James, Todd, JoAnn, and Molly Jean Hughes.
