April 16, 1952 - Jan. 12, 2011
Raymond Richard Burr, 58, of Walla Walla, died unexpectedly Jan. 12, 2011, at Providence St. Mary Medical Center. He was the son of Addison Harmon and Edith Louise Sprague Burr, formerly of Oakfield, N.Y. He had served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He had lived in Washington for approximately 30 years. An employee of the Electricians Union, he had worked as an electrician, employed locally by Doyle Electric for many years.
He is survived by two daughters, Kimberly Burr and Michelle and her husband Steven Reeves; one grandson, Cohen Zackery Reeves; three brothers, William (Carol) Burr, Brian Burr and Robin Burr; two sisters, Ann (Rexford) Ball and Cathie (Ernest) Whaley; his brother-in-law, Richard Say; many aunts, uncles, nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by one sister, Bonnie Say.
Raymond loved to be with his friends and make people laugh and ride his Harley Davidson motorcycle; but what made him the happiest and most proud were his daughters and his new grandson.
A celebration of his life will be in the spring. Memorial contributions may be made to the American Diabetes Association through Mountain View-Colonial DeWitt, 1551 Dalles Military Road, Walla Walla, WA 99362.
