Alexander Dean “A.D.” Burt, IV of Chestertown, Maryland died on the evening of Saturday, April 25, 2020 as the result of a motor vehicle accident. He was 38.

A.D. was the only child of Dean and Nina Burt. He graduated from Kent County High School (1999) and Virginia Military Institute (2003).

A.D. spent his career in the nursery business. At the time of his death, he sold specialty potting soil mixes to nursery operations along the East Coast.

He was a great fisherman who spent many days fishing offshore in Ocean City and Cape Hatteras on his boat, Magic, and traveled as far as South America to fish.

“He was a friend to everyone whom you could lean on and count on,” lifelong friend Creg Fleetwood recalled. “He loved and lived life as hard as he could and made himself available to his family and friends. He was taken away too soon.”

Memorial services will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a scholarship for the benefit of marine studies will be established in his name and announced at a later date.
