BURBAGE, David Roy - After celebrating his 60th birthday on Saturday, January 29, 2011, at his parents' home, David suffered a severe heart attack and died suddenly in his car as he returned to his Burlington apartment. He had no prior adverse health indications or warnings. David is survived by his parents Lorraine and Leslie Burbage of Burlington and his sister Jane Burbage of St. Catharines. He was an employee of Chemtura Canada (previously Pennwalt, Elf Atochem), for 31 years until the Oakville location closed in May of 2008. David developed a love of nature and outdoor activities from his years of vacations at Pioneer Camp in Port Sydney. Later he was a Cub Scout leader for several years. He was a licensed Ham Radio Operator and an avid rail fan. He will be fondly remembered by the many friends he made through these activities and by his neighbours at the Glencrest Terrace Apartments in Burlington, where he made his home for many years. Friends may call at DODSWORTH AND BROWN FUNERAL HOME 'BURLINGTON CHAPEL', 2241 New St. (at Drury Lane), Saturday, February 5th from 2-5 p.m. For friends who wish to honour David's memory, donations to a charity of choice, in lieu of flowers, would be appreciated by the family. A private burial service will be held at a later date.
