  1. Uncle Dave,

    Although it’s sad to know you are gone, it’s such a relief to know that there will be no more pain for you. May you now rest in eternal peace. I also know Grandpa was waiting for you and you are now in the best of hands! You will be missed, but not forgotten.

    We had the pleasure of meeting David when he worked for Buttrey’s. From the first time we spoke, we KNEW he was part of the “Burns” Butte clan. He was such a special person and made quite an impact on everyone he came in contact with. We are all so glad that God has taken him in his loving hands and he is at peace. His memory will live on in our hearts forever and we are all blessed to have been a little part of the sparkle he brought to this life. May God Bless…

    I knew Dave for over 30 years. We rocked the 80’s, conquered the 90’s and slowed it down in the new millenium. A good person taken from us too early. I will miss him with every day. He was my friend.
