Peacefully, surrounded by the love of family, Larry James Burns, passed away at Seaforth Community Hospital on Friday, April 27, 2018. In his 74 years among us, Larry’s life was shaped with the blessings of family, faith and farming.
Larry will be lovingly remembered by his wife Betty and their children, Conrad (Pam), Art (Tracy Bisback) and James (Jenn).
