In memory of
Daryl A. Burrer July 3, 2019 Daryl A. Burrer, 57, of Baldwinsville passed away peacefully at his home on July 3, 2019 surrounded in love by his wife and children. Born in Ohio, he graduated from Sayville High School in Long Island, NY. He received a Bachelor of Science degree from Binghamton University and a Master's degree from the University of Pittsburgh. After his Masters he spent 18 months in Japan teaching English as a second language. Daryl retired from Liverpool School District June 2018 after 30 years where he taught AP Economics and Government. He was also the advisor for Academic Decathlon for many years. He was an excellent teacher who was well-respected by his former students and colleagues. Many thanks to them for their generous love and support during this difficult time. He had a love of travel and the outdoors, National Parks and historic places being favorites. Many vacations were spent in Maine and the Outer Banks in NC. He, his wife and children were also quite fond of cruises of which they took many. But probably his greatest joy was time spent cheering on his son and daughter at their sport events. He was a Baldwinsville Youth Soccer Association coach (BYSA) for both his son and daughter for many years. He spent countless hours at the park tossing baseballs with his son and practicing soccer skills with his daughter. His proudest moments were when his son's club soccer team won State cup and his daughter's varsity soccer school team won the State championship. He is survived by his loving wife of 24 years, Christine McElwain Burrer; his children Alexander Richard Burrer and Leah Carolyn Burrer of Baldwinsville; parents Richard L and Donna J Burrer of Ocala Florida and Baldwinsville; sisters Diane ( Michael) Eubank of Baldwinsville, NY and Darleen (Toby) Hopkins of Dalonega, GA; nieces Megan Eubank and Michelle Eubank of Baldwinsville; nephews Jacob Hopkins and Josh Hopkins of Dalonega, GA and Derek McElwain of Massena, NY; brothers in-law Brian (Rebecca) McElwain and John McElwain.
