Paul Edward Burk, age 91, passed away April 3, 2021. Paul was born September 8, 1929 in Round Rock, Texas to Oscar and Edna (Anderson) Burk. He proudly served his country in the United States Army. Paul worked for Dills Charleston, Inc. for over 40 years. He married Gloria Matoska in 1954. They were longtime active members and volunteers at Redeemer Lutheran Church in Austin. Paul was also an active member of the American Legion. He loved the outdoors and spent countless hours tending to his beautifully manicured yard and flower beds. Paul’s greatest joy, however, was spending time with his family.
