A celebration of life for John Rodney Burgess, 68, will be held on Sunday, July 16, 2017, from 2 p.m. until 5 p.m. at the Jacksonville Community Center in the Fireside room. Mr. Burgess was a JSU graduate, honorably served in the U.S. Army and was locally known as "The Pizza Man". He was the owner of multiple Custom Pizza restaurants in the tri-county area. Dad was well loved and respected by his daughters, whom he proudly served as both father and mother. He will be forever missed but his legacy will live on through his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers we ask that you bring a covered dish, pictures and share the good memories you have made with him.
