Formerly of Little Meadows: On Friday, November 2, 2012, Robert A. Burns, 86, crossed over to his heavenly home, there to meet Jesus his Lord and Savior and be reunited with Vivian, his wife of 60 years.

Bob was predeceased by his parents; his wife, Vivian on August 10, 2009; siblings, Mary, Frank, Richard, Elzie, Paul and David. Bob was born on January 15, 1926 in Rochester, NY, a son of the late Alton Frank and Anna Pearl (Inman) Burns. He proudly served his country with the US Army during WWII. Bob spent most of his life as a plumber and machinist. His devotion and love for his Lord lead him, at the age of 83, to receive his Ministry License from the Pentecostal Holiness Conference. Bob had a great care and compassion for others, he was a companion to the disabled at the Broome Developmental Center and he always looked forward to his weekly visits to share scripture and prayers with those in prison. His kindness and love will live forever in our hearts. Family and friends are invited to attend a period of visitation today, November 7th, from 4 to 7 p.m. at the Sutfin Funeral Chapel, 273 S.
