Leopold Edwin Denfield Burton

14 April, 19386 May, 2021

Leopold Edwin Denfield Burton was born on April 14, 1938 in St. John’s, Antigua . Leo, as he was affectionately known, was a friend and member of the Antigua Grammar School Football team along with the late great, Congrad Georges. They presented a formidable defense against all advancing forwards as the aggressive Strikers thought that they could defeat Antigua Grammar School football team. As the Captain, Leo preferred others to speak up because he preferred a quiet silence to forcibly lectures. He was naturally a quiet man. A very quiet man. Quiet, reserved, a loner, are words that best describe Leo. As long as he had a Schafer beer, coffee, a newspaper, and something to eat, Leo wasn’t a bother to anyone around him. Even in his later days, he still preferred to have a Schafer beer when he was able to sneak one. He looked forward for his coffee, a newspaper, and something to eat but he didn’t want anyone in his personal space. In September, 2018, Leo relocated to Florida to his daughter, Diedre and his grandchildren. Ultimately he was diagnosed with dementia that sadly took his life on May 6, 2021. Leo was the third of eight children to Joseph and Clarise Burton, both deceased. He was preceded in death by his brothers Garfield, Griffith, and Dave, his son Darin and his nephew Jermaine. He leaves behind to cherish his memories, his daughter, Diedre, and sons; Trevor and Hank. His siblings; Gloria, Joscelyn, Hugh, and Eric. Along with his grandchildren; Lance, Shamoy, Lanee, and Kayiesha. His great grandchildren; Timyah, TyAhna, and AhMari. His nieces; Colleen, Michelle, Lowanda, Brenda, Anouchka, Daveda Christina, Destiny.. His Nephews; Jerry, Wayne, Deanne, Rickey, Dwayne, Christopher, DellSr., Dell Jr and Dheron..the entire Jude, Stamers and Burton families..and many more special family and friends too numerous to mention.
