Clint Gregory Burdick was born in Denver, Colorado, on August 18,1967 to Greg Burdick and Cynthia Baker. He died in Corbin, Kentucky in December 2022 at the age of 55. Clint would do anything for anyone, whether helping someone with their broken car, fixing plumbing for the needy or stopping on the road to help someone reload a turned-over truck.
Clint was highly intelligent, creative, handsome and athletic, although he did not think so. Adding to this list with great emphasis, he was intensely curious about everything. When he was 8, he could draw animals that most adults could not draw. In school, he achieved excellent grades mostly as an AP student, many times straight A’s and was loved by all his teachers. He decided to become a certified iron worker, unbeknownst to his parents. He was asked about a picture of him on the iron, “What story are you working on?” He answered, “5th floor, but it doesn’t matter because I would likely die from a fall from the 2nd floor." His strength was incredible. In later years, he was the Maintenance Manager for apartment complexes as large as 60 residential units with four commercial units. He did this for 17 years. He loved helping anyone, personally or professionally, but disliked (not using his words) picking up poop.
Clint loved motorcycles. He rebuilt a vintage Harley from scratch and had many beautiful bikes. He loved to ride. Same as his dad, he loved any kind of animal from dogs to ferrets to parrots to foxes and more. His most recent love was Kato, the blue healer he had wanted since he was young. He picked up puppy Kato from the breeder, putting him in a milk carton on the back of his Harley. Kato loved that. Clint taught himself to play guitar and loved music. He would tease his mom when he’d ask, “who’s singing this?” When his mom didn’t know, he’d say, “but it was your era.” They would laugh. He and his dad shared a wicked, crazy sense of humor and ideas abounding. Clint also loved to ski and would stop at the bottom of the hill and yell back, “hurry up.”
There was no one Clint couldn’t talk with, if he wanted to talk with you having many opportunities by living in 7 states (CO, MD, WI, FL, WA, CA, KY). He was the first grandchild in both families, and there was a special bond between him and his Granny Billie (born in Corbin) and Dr. Burdick. Clint will be missed much more than he knows. We know you are riding a Harley on the great roads of Heaven. Clint is survived by his parents, his grandmother (Billie), his half-sister (Auria) and aunts, uncles and cousins.
