In memory of
REV. DAVID L. BURTON
BURTON, REV. DAVID L. of Estherville, and formerly of the Grand Rapids, Michigan area, went to be with his Savior and Redeemer on November 28, 2020 at the Good Samaritan Society in Estherville, Iowa. He was 88. Born on February 11th, 1932 to Lee and Lucy (Bundy) Burton, David spent his formative years in Bradford, Pennsylvania. Dave attended Roberts Wesleyan College in Rochester, New York, where he met his first wife, Bessie. To this union were born two children, Doug and Sandy. Dave's 45-year career in ministry included attending Asbury Theological Seminary and serving nine Free Methodist Churches in three Conferences in four states. He found a love in Church Camping and was often found at the various church campgrounds working to improve their ministries and facilities. Dave's cement work left his mark on many a community in the form of sidewalks, patios, driveways, and even a basketball court. Dave "retired" from ministry in December of 1998, just days after Bessie passed away. Dave reconnected with Barbara, a seminary classmate's widow, soon afterward. Dave and Barb were married in 2000. Barb brought five adult children to the marriage, Cliff, Barbie, Marilyn, Nadyne, and Diane. Barb died in 2019 and Dave spent some time with his daughter in California before moving to Estherville to be near Doug. Services for David will take place in the fall of 2021. David will be laid to rest at the Greene Cemetery in Belding, Michigan. Online condolences may be left for David's family at HenryOlsonFuneral.com
