Robert E. Burris, 83, of Columbus, passed peacefully away on Saturday, April 15, 2017 at Mt. Carmel East. Bob was born on December 11, 1933 to Bill and Ruth Burris. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather and friend, who was always there to lend a helping hand. Bob will be sadly missed but fondly remembered by his family and many friends. He was preceded in death by his loving wife of 60 years, Nancy Lee Burris, his parents Bill and Ruth, and sister Retha. Bob is survived by his son Steven (Joetta) Burris; daughter, Susie (Curt) Barger; grandchildren Katie, Kyle and Jacob Barger, Andrew Melchert and Jena Clerico; sister Beverly Daniels and a host of cousins, nieces and nephews. It was Bob’s wish that there be no visitation or funeral service, just remember him in your hearts.
Death and love are the two wings that bear the good man to heaven. (Michelangelo). Above everything, Bob was truly a good man. He is now resting in eternity with the love of his life.
