February 22, 1963 – July 23, 2020
Bruce Wayne Burdette, 57 of Martinsburg, WV passed away July 23, 2020 comfortably in the presence of family. Born February 22, 1963 in Olney, Maryland, he was the son of the late Arnold (Booty) Thomas and Helen Sue (Collins) Burdette. Retired from the United States Post Office, Bruce spent his time woodworking in his shed, commonly referred to as his “Man Cave,” tending to his plants and playing so much Solitaire that the game outline is permanently etched into the screen of his phone. He is survived by his daughter, Sage Burdette; his brothers Zane (Cheryl) Burdette, Billy (Maureen) Burdette and Arnold “J.R.” (Frances) Burdette; and his nieces and nephews: Heath Burdette, Sarah Martin, Dennis “Little J.R.” Shrewsberry, Cody Shrewsberry, Arnold “T.J” Burdette and Ivey “Jaime” Burdette. In light of recent global events, a private viewing will be held for immediate family, but for those who would like to honor Bruce, in lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to The American Heart Association or The Heart Foundation.
