In Memory

Jerry Lee Burton

Sunday, January 20, 2019

 

This morning I got a text from Zac Burton that Jerry passed away peacefully this morning after a long illness. Jerry wanted to be cremated and put in his bamboo garden. They will have a memory service in April when the new bamboo shoots start blooming.

So sad to hear this. Jerry was a great guy and teammate. He was a vital part of our successful cross country team. He will be dearly misssed but never forgotten. I have a picture of him with our team in my home office and see it everyday.  I often think about the times we all ran together.  Sincere prayers and condolences to his family.  Barry Binkley

Once again we are reminded of our mortality. Jerry  was a perfect example of Billy Joel's song, Only the Good Die Young....

Those of us who are here understand that we are all young at heart.
