Obituary for Mark P. Burns

Burns, Mark P. Age 85

Dearly beloved husband for 56 years of the late Mary Ellen Burns (nee Cullen).
Devoted father of Colleen Pochyly, Maureen (Wally) Bekta, and Kathleen (Brian) Clancy.

Cherished great-grandfather of Emma, Anna, Addy, Ronan, and Luca.
Loving brother of the late Patricia (late Jim) Walsh, late William, and late Robert Burns.

Mark valued education and worked hard to secure academic scholarships to St Ignatius and the University of Notre Dame (ND '56).
