    Aw, such sad news. :( I've read that he was a very down-to-earth guy.
    At least he was around friends and family. Hope he rests in peace.

    Sad to hear. There is a documentary about him called Burt's Buzz, I saw it on netflix a while back.

      I saw his documentary. He was just a simple guy selling jars of honey from the side of the road without a care in his life.

    Aw man, I've been using his Bees for so long that I feel like I know him. I once kept a single tube for seven months in Afghanistan without losing it and it kept my lips in good health in the worst conditions.

    One of the few companies that have consistently put out great products over the years. This is indeed sad news. I wonder if the company will be able to hold its integrity now, or if it will do like so many others and start making compromises without him helping to guide it.

      He hasn't had anything to do with the business since '94, and even before that he was more a figurehead. There's a great documentary about him called "Burt's Buzz" if you'd like to know how he and his partner came about the business.

      I truly hope not, my family has used his products for as long as I can remember. :(

    This is quite sad. I swear by burt's bees, never used another brand of chapstick since I discovered it. RIP.
