Donald Raymond Burns was born on December 29, 1957, in Everett, WA. He passed away on August 21, 2013 in Coupeville, WA. He was 55 years old.
He is survived by his three children, Angela Brown, Aimee Rose, and Robert Burns. He also left behind 5 grandchildren, and 7 siblings.
He was the youngest child of Robert and Myrtle Burns of Everett, WA, both deceased.
Don was a longtime Whidbey Island resident. He was a retired Chief Engineer with Foss Maritime Company, and an Inland Boatmen's Union member. He was happiest when he was on a boat, enjoying the water. He was a generous and fun-loving man, a proud father, and a loyal friend to many. He left us unexpectedly and far too soon.
Friends and family are invited to a memorial reception, bring and share, for food and sharing favorite memories of Don. It will be held on Saturday, September 21, at 2:00, at the Holmes Harbor Rod and Gun Club.
