Burt Garthwaite was a construction worker who wielded a crowbar years before his son Dirk did. He was fired from one construction site after another due to his violent temper and drinking. A belligerent drunk, he repeatedly abused his wife and son. He was reported dead at one time which everyone believed[1], and he allowed them to continue believing it.

When Captain Shelley Conklin comes to him to enlist his aid in stopping his son, he wants money for doing it. The Wrecker shows up and is about to attack him, when Code:Blue manages to hold him off for a few seconds, but Burt dies from a heart attack. Captain Conklin later comments to Marcus Stone about whether Burt died out of sheer spite, one last chance to beat his son.
