Obituary for Dennis E. Burke

Burke, Dennis E.

Dennis E. Burke, 77, of Two Harbors, MN, passed away on September 20, 2020 in Duluth, MN.
He was born in Chicago, IL to William and Helen Burke (nee Walsh) on October 2, 1942. Dennis earned a degree in Finance in 1964 from DePaul University. He spent his career managing finance and accounting departments for several global manufacturing and professional service organizations throughout the Midwest and Pennsylvania. A veteran of the Vietnam War, he served in the Army Special Forces and achieved the rank of Captain.
Dennis loved living in the Northwoods of Minnesota and was an avid outdoorsman. There was not a history book – or any book really – within his reach that he did not read, most likely doing so while listening to classical music. A lifelong learner, he recently earned a data analytics certificate from Cornell University.
Dennis is preceded in death by his parents and his sister, Patricia Burke.
Survivors include his children, Rebecca Burke of Chicago, William (Gretchen) Burke of Ashland, WI, and Stephen (Karen) Burke of Nashville, TN; grandson, Thomas Burke; brother, Fr. William Burke of Orland Park; and sister, Mary Ellen Kelly of Tinley Park and a niece and nephews.

Visitation will be from 9:30 a.m.- 11:00 a.m., followed by a funeral Mass at 11:00 a.m., Wednesday, Sept. 30th at Our Lady of St. Germaine, 9737 S. Kolin Ave, Oak Lawn. Interment will be in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, 6001 W. 111st, Alsip. Social distancing and masks are required.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be given in his name to The National Park Foundation.
Due to Covid-19, masks are required and no loitering is preferred.

Please leave a memory for the family on Dennis’s Tribute Wall; your stories will bring comfort to the family.
