Worked in the mechanical shop at ExxonMobil with Neil. Such a great guy to with. Rest in peace, “Buddy”.
Worked with Neil for 36 years, 20 years our work benches were side-by-side and for the last 16 years I was his supervisor. Had many great times working with Neil and having a few beers. Neil was a great I-tech but a better person and friend, RIP Buddy “NFB” Burgett, you will be missed
I knew Neil from High School, we were in track together, he was a wonderful person, classmate, and teammate. Rest In Peace my friend.
My condolences to the Burgett family. I worked with Neil at Joliet. He was a humble knowledgeable guy and was a guy that could fix anything. Sorry to hear of his passing.
I'm so sorry to hear of Neil's passing. When I was a kid, I raised sheep. Neil used to shear them for me. We also played football together. RIP Buddy. Jack Weese
