As the mother of the very first beautiful Burrie grandchild in the family, I adored John as a person, a family member, and an Uncle. Even though he was not able to be around for the first few years of Rianna's life, I could not have asked for a better Uncle for James during his time here. Whenever we visited the Burrie house, John was always the first to pick up, swing around, and hug James. He spent hours of his time bonding with him and never once hesitated when we asked for a babysitter. He always read to James, and James absolutely loved it. Remember when he was on his Missions Trip, and he sent brand new books and cassette tapes with his voice recorded, reading the books to James to make up for lost time with him? He was and always has been the best uncle the kids could ask for. He was someone that James and Rianna could look up to, and very rightfully so. Although he missed James HS graduation. He had planned to be there with us, and I know that he played a significant part in the wonderful person that James has become.
He was loved by all of us and lead a very respectful life.
I know in my heart that he is with Jesus and in all of our hearts, and that we will all see him again soon.

Lillie could have ridden Big Thunder Mountain with any of us, but she CHOSE her Uncle John (sometimes Uncle Junkle). She's got the big ole Burrie heart too and she loved him with all of it. Miss having you around and seeing you every day, John. You might be the best house guest we've ever had!

Rest In Peace.

John always had the greatest stories of his family and working on his bug. From working in the line shack to working as AT’s together, John was there for us through every evolution. His laughter and infinite ideas will forever stay with me. John Lyle, you are so sadly missed. Love ya John! Fly high!

You will forever be more than a shipmate. You are our family and we love you and we thank you for being there during one of the most difficult times in the Navy. Hooyah 316!

Mr John Burrie was my trainee at one point in VFA-213 and I'll never forget his first time going to the carrier. It was dark and dangerous and to see his eyes light up with these aircraft was priceless. He was always the kindest sole and always enjoyed sharing laughs with the men and women he served next to. His mark he left on so many people will never be forgotten
