Dwaine Lee Burr 1937 ~ 2011Salina, UtahOur beloved father, grandfather, greatgrandfather and brother returned home to his Heavenly Father, where many of his loved ones were waiting for his arrival on December 16, 2011 of a heart attack while hunting elk. He was born May 31, 1937 in Salina Utah to Morse Burr and Zelma Willardsen Burr. Dwaine married the love of his life, Verlyne Anderson on November 2, 1956. They were later sealed in the Manti Utah Temple on April 19, 1980. Dwaine lived his entire life in Salina Utah and loved it beyond words to explain. Dwaine loved working for the Utah Department of Transportation, the State Road, in Richfield Utah. He worked there for over 35 years until his retirement in 1996. He was blessed with great ability in basketball, baseball and tennis and his name appears many times in the trophy cases of North Sevier High School. He played on his church softball team that was All Church Champions in 1965. He loved his New York Yankees. He was an ardent fan of Boise State Bronco football. He loved the team and all they have accomplished, especially Coach "Pete."Dwaine was extremely loyal and proud of his North Sevier High School Class of 1955. He was an ongoing member of the Class Reunion Planning Committees and never missed a class reunion.Dwaine was perhaps the best fisherman around. His pickup has a bumper sticker that reads, "FISH TREMBLE at the sound of my name." He loved to take friends or family fishing and did it very often.He was true, faithful, consistent and dependable in fulfilling his many callings in the LDS Church. He served for over 29 years as the Stake Clerk for four different Stake Presidencies in the North Sevier Stake, a position he held up until his untimely death.He was an extremely compassionate person. He invested his retirement years wisely by visiting all that were not feeling okay. He was a good example of the Pure Love of Christ. Dwaine was a fine example of honesty, integrity and kindness to others and there will be emptiness in the hearts of all who knew and loved him. He was incredibly generous. He was always donating to those less fortunate. He was particularly generous in his contributions to the "Feed the Children" group.His greatest joy and happiness was any activity that he was involved in that included his family, of whom he was justifiably proud. In fact, his final moments were spent involved in just such a family outing with his brother, Robert, and good friend Kay Williams.He is survived by two of his sons, Tracy (Tracey) Burr, who is a CPA and tax accountant and practices in Dallas, TX and Dr. Randall "Randy" (Mona) Burr, who is a dermatologist and practices in Boise, ID, 3 grandsons, 3 granddaughters, 1 great-grandson, and his younger brother Robert.He was preceded in death by his wife Verlyne, their infant daughter Melanie and their teenage son Matthew, his parents and his older brother Gaylon. He will now have the opportunity to meet them once again, and with his wife raise their infant daughter and teenage son.Funeral services will be held Tuesday, December 20, 2011 at Noon at the Salina LDS Stake Center, 98 West 400 North, Salina, Utah.
