Greg was a special friend to many in our high school class at John Marshall in Oklahoma City. I know I speak for many that we truly enjoyed seeing him at our reunon this past summer and have many fond memories of Greg in our "growing up" years. He was a joy!
I have so many fond memories of family gatherings at Grandma and Grandad Williams' farm in Baldwin. So wonderful to know that my cousin that I knew as a young boy grew into such a great man. Fly with the angels Greg.

My Love and Prayers go out to the Burton Family.
My sympaythy to Nancy and the family.
Capt. Greg Burton - sincerely, a joy to fly with...
Dear Burton Family,
Heartfelt condolences to all of you.
My deepest condolenes are offered to his family and friends. Greg was a true professional that made flying fun. I'm sure he is teaching the Angels in Heaven some flying techniques. Keep It Up the Middle. Chris Plaisance
Greg, may the future bring you only fair skies and tailwinds. We will miss you, my friend, and will look forward to meeting you again in Heaven, where you can teach the angels how to "really" fly.
Nancy, to you our love and wish for a future filled with loving memories of Greg and the knowledge that he has risen above his temporary, earthly disabilities.
It was a shock to read about Greg's passing. Our deepest condolenes to the family. Mom was reflecing on what a good time she had with Greg. Please let us know if you need anything. Our thoughts and prayer are with you.
Claudia and Tina
More than a cousin, you were a buddy. Many pleasant memories of times past help numb the sorrow. Rest in Peace and Love.
Our condolences to the family of a great guy. I always enjoyed being around Greg. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.

Greg was really a very neat person and
a real joy to fly with. Gods speed Greg!
Very, very sorry to hear about Greg. So young. He was one of the nice guys you loved to have fly into your station, always with a smile on his face. He will be missed
Greg was my cousin. We last spoke just before Christmas and he sounded ok given the health issues he has faced in recent years. Cousin Roger Smith, Greg and I were classic car and hot rod nuts. I always enjoyed those types of conversations with him over the years. He had some great cars. I believe Greg and I had grown closer in recent years than we were as kids growing up. As a Vietnam veteran, I salute Greg's military service in addition to his accomplishments in civilian life. Will miss you Greg.

The planet, and the Southwest family, are a bit less bright with Greg's passing. A nice guy, and fine pilot, with nothing to prove. Admirably, he kept his humor and dignity through his affliction. A man much to be admired and missed by all.
Our sympathies to the Burton family.
Greg was such a pleasure to fly with. May time heal your grief.
Terry Sauder, Capt. (Ret.) Southlake,Texas
My deepest sympathy to Nancy and your family. Greg was a great friend and will be missed.
It was a pleasure to fly with Greg as his first officer in the mid-80's. He was professional, relaxed, fun to fly with, and a good aviator. He loved Southwest Airlines, the Southwest family, and represented the LUV airline and it's mission well. Everyone I know at Southwest enjoyed his company, inside and out of the cockpit. He was a fine man and will truely be missed. The photo of a B-737 flying west at sunset says it all. Rest in peace on your final flight.
Our condolences to all of the family in your time of grief. Greg was a great Guy and will be missed.
Always a pleasure to fly with Greg.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
