Obituary for John Burke

John  Burke
Our wonderful father, John T. Burke, recently passed away peacefully at home at the age of 91. He had been married to his sweetheart Marilyn for sixty extraordinary years. Together they raised three children, Tom and twins Sarah and Beth. John was a skilled carpenter, electrician, plumber, handyman and over the years he and Marilyn renovated their home. It was a home full of love and nurturing with family time spent outdoors hiking, camping, picnicking, skating, cross country skiing and sunset evenings at Hammonasset for a swim. John was a life-long resident of Meriden. He enlisted in the Navy at seventeen and worked as an electrician aboard the USS Beckham during WWII. On returning from the service, he graduated from UConn with a degree in education but chose a career with the U.S. Postal Service, where he was employed for thirty-seven years. John was also a life-long learner who never stopped asking questions. He read his New York Times daily from cover to cover and listened to news programs until wee hours of the morning. He was well informed on all current and past events, especially local and World politics. He certainly would have a lot to comment on these days. He also has an extraordinary knowledge of Meriden and its history.
John will be dearly missed by his son Thomas and wife Rihab and their son Weylin; daughter Sarah and her sons Thomas and Tennie; daughter, Elizabeth and husband Nelson and their children, Matthew and Rebecca; and by his sister Mary and family. He also had five adoring great-grandchildren, Lillian , Stephen, Samuel, Eloise and Margaret Marilyn.
May the sun shine warm upon your face Dad. We love you.
