AMELIA COUNTY, Va. — Orlando shooting victim Darryl Roman Burt II, 29, will be buried in Amelia County later this month, Scott Funeral Home confirmed.

Born at Fort Lee, Burt’s grandmother lives in Amelia County.

Burt worked on the Jacksonville campus of Keiser University, the school said.

“Darryl was a highly respected member of the KU team, and his contributions to our students and his colleagues will not be forgotten,” the university said.

In addition to his work as a financial aid officer at the school, he was also a dedicated community volunteer, according to the Orlando Sentinel.

Jacksonville Jaycees President Shawn DeVries told the newspaper he was “personable, social and easygoing.”

“He was the type of person that was always willing to help,” DeVries said.

Burt called South Carolina home for at least two years as a student at Claflin University in Orangeburg, according to school officials.

Burt, Claflin officials said, majored in English.
