Arthur Charles Jr. BURGESS

January 12, 1952 ~ January 26, 2014

It is with sad hearts we announce the passing of Art Jr at age 62. He is survived by his children Katie and Tom; father and mother, Art and Dorothy; siblings Dave (Janet), Terry (Mona), Karen and Brian; along with extended family. Art’s zest for life brought much joy and laughter to his friends, family and transit coworkers. He lived life to the fullest and was passionate about flying, sky diving and boat building. If it moved, Art was propelling it. He was loved and respected by all who knew him and famous for his animated story telling. Following Art’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A celebration of life will be planned for a later date in Campbell River. For details or to express your condolences to the family please email:
