Bert Allen Saxton, age 66, passed away on April 26, 2024. Bert was born August 21, 1957 in Crawford NE to Milo and Rosemary Saxton.

Bert’s education began in a one room schoolhouse on Cottonwood Creek in Sioux County NE. He then attended high school in Crawford NE where he was a noted participant in the wrestling program. He went on to graduate in 1975.
