Bobby R. Burdett
June 16, 1936 – September 12, 2011
Bob went to be with his heavenly father on Monday, September 12, 2011.
He was born June 16,1936 in Springfield, Mo. He served 12 years in the U.S. Army, was a chef for several years, and retired from CF in Fremont. He married Rollene Kay Burdett (Mostek) on December 29, 1978.
His loving memory will always remain embedded in our hearts. His deep love for his family is what made Bob who he was. Bo’s kindness and compassion toward everyone he knew and met is something that will always be remembered.
Bob’s passion for life spilled over into many things. He was an avid hunter, fisherman, and enjoyed stock car racing. He was always excited to share a story about his last adventure or more importantly to him, to listen to yours.
Bob celebrated life every day, and we look forward to the day that we will all be together again.
