Stanton, KY-Danny Keith Burr, 79, passed away Monday, Nov. 11, 2019, at his residence.
Born in Bowen, KY, he was the son of the late Lagene Burr and the late Hazel King Burr and he was an Army veteran.
Danny was a former IBEW Union Secretary and plant foreman of A O Smith. He was a devoted husband, father and grandfather. Danny’s impact reaches far beyond his family due to his loving and caring nature. His natural instinct was to always put others first. Nothing would’ve made Danny happier than for you to go out and commit a random act of kindness in his honor.
Take this opportunity to pay for someone in line behind you, give a little extra change to the Salvation Army bucket this holiday season or share a smile or a compliment with a stranger. It is our hope that our sweet Danny’s memory will live on in these acts of kindness.
In addition to his parents, Danny was also preceded in death by two daughters, Angela Burr and Tammy Burr and by his sister, Jean Bowen.
He is survived by his wife, Joyce Ridgeway Burr; son, Jonathan Burr; daughters, Jenise (Kevin) Babcock and Jacqueline (Ivan) Kirby; and six grandchildren, April Babcock (Nathan) Johnson, Josh Babcock, Alanna Babcock, Amanda Babcock, Corey Kirby and Courtney Kirby.
Graveside service will be at 3 p.m. Friday, Nov. 15, in Roach Cemetery, Muddy Creek Mountain, Lewisburg, with Billy Bowen, Josh Babcock, Nathan Johnson, Kevin Babcock, Ivan Kirby and Kermit Begley serving as active pallbearers.
Honorary pallbearers are members of IBEW, Jimmy Morgan, Robbie Martin, Ronnie Martin, William Ridgeway, Bobby Ridgeway and Robbie Ridgeway.
