I remember Mr. Burgess when I was at Conlee Elementary School. Later, I was a janitor for him when he was the principal at Valley View Elementary. He was such a kind and gracious man.
Now, 46 years later, I pastor a church in Idaho. What a testimony he had for our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. His faith has now become his sight. Amen

I am sorry for your loss. Mr. Burgess was my principal at Valley View Elementary school many many years ago and I still remember him. Veronica Sepulveda

Heaven opened the gates for one of the most remarkable, loving Christian man I was privileged to know. In 1961, I was a brand new mom and 6th grade teacher, working next to Fred. Not a Christian at that point in my life, I was surprised at the kindness and love he expressed to this needy young teacher and her family. He became my mentor teacher....I was a failure in math (the NEW MATH was the "new thing".....I was lost..so every morning I was tutored at 7:30, would try hard to remember exactly what Fred taught me so I could "deliver" the lesson thirty minutes later! I survived and fortunately, he did , too! My kids figured out what was happening and if they were not getting my teaching, one of the sassy ones would say, can you ask Mr. Burgess, please? Fred loved to sing and I was a music major so we did a lot of singing with our kids together. We each were running 40 plus kids, so together we made awesome harmony. Mrs. Askew, the official music teacher, loved the way our kids belted out the music! We partnered for 3 years under Miss Nees, our amazing principal until University Hills was built to create lower class size, and I moved on to become that schools first sixth grade teacher. While we did not teach together again, we both served as principals in the system and saw one another at various activities. In those long years, I became a follower of Christ and one of the first folks I called to share my Good News was my precious friend, Fred. He shared my joy, needless to say, and reminded me that he had been own on his knees more than once for me! When we both landed at FBC on Miranda Street, it was another time of celebration. I loved it when Fred would play his autoharp during service. While I was not as engaged with his family as I was with the teacher stuff and Fred, I recall his pride in his bride, Elizabeth and his precious girls. He truly was a man of God who shared his love with each and every child that crossed his path and any others fortunate enough to be in his path! God bless this precious family.
