Robert Burr


Robert, 90, entered into eternal rest at his home in Sun City, AZ, December 31, 2020.
Preceded in death by his parents and life partner. Survived by his loving sister, Aurelie (Lee) O’Hare (Larry); nephew, Patrick O’Hare; nieces, Laurie Stanley (David) and Debbie Stanley. He leaves behind many supportive friends, one great-niece, three great-nephews and three great-grandnieces and nephews.
Born and raised in Spokane, WA. Graduate of Gonzaga University, Spokane. Extremely proud of his U.S. Coast Guard service but never sailed from the port of San Francisco.
Retired from Brooks Brothers wherein he was deemed their most valued merchandiser and employee. An avid reader and outstanding bowler. A world traveler and supporter of the arts. Bob and his partner were active participants of Sun City Players, Sun City, AZ.
We will remember Bob for his smile, light hearted attitude, and a little scotch before dinner. Covid 19 pandemic and its rules, allowed a little more scotch before bedtime.
Bob will be interred in the spring at Fairmount Memorial Park, Spokane, WA. A celebration of life will occur locally after the pandemic has departed. If appropriate, remembrances to Sun City Players, Sun City, AZ.
