It is impossible to encapsulate such a life well lived. William's ninety-six years saw him play many roles - loving husband, father, grandfather and great grand-father, making memories of snowmen and hula hoops, playing games and happily sharing his time with family and friends.
He believed in serving his country and his community - a proud Navy veteran of WWII, Korea and Vietnam, William shared his experiences with pride. And having a street named after him, Burton Lane, is a true testament to his dedication to his town and his neighbors.
His absence leaves a great void, but it was his beautiful presence that will always be remembered and cherished by those fortunate enough to have known him.
To ensure your generosity and support are acknowledged - and to help protect you from future solicitations - the Burton Family has requested that memorial contributions be made through IN MEMORY OF to the
