Lester Thomas Burton Obituary

Early in the morning of August 8, 2015 the soul of Lester Thomas Burton entered eternal life. Lester was the youngest son of Robert and Rachael Burton of Escondido, New Mexico just south of Dog Canyon, New Mexico.

Lester was 45 years of age, born on May 9, 1970 on Wurtsmith AFB, Mich. Lester's father Robert Sr. served in the Air Force for 20 years and Lester lived in many locations to include, Michigan, Illinois, South Dakota and California. Lester and his family came to reside in the Alamogordo area in 1986 and called the area home until his passing. Although Lester was born legally blind, his handicap never extinguished the loving and caring spirit he had for others.

Lester will be sorely missed and fondly remembered by all who knew him. He will now be laid to rest next to his mother, Rachael, who passed in 2012, in a cemetery near Weed, New Mexico.

Lester is survived by his father, Robert E. Burton Sr. of Escondido and his older brother, Robert E. Burton Jr. and his wife, Brenda, and sons, Jordan and Kevin of El Paso, Texas.

May we always remember Lester's legacy of hard work and devotion to his family. God Speed, Lester, enjoy your repose with our Lord Jesus and revel in external happiness. Love your family and friends.

The funeral service will be conducted at 10:30 a.m. Friday August 14, 2015 at Weed House of Prayer with Pastor Don Brown officiating. Burial will follow.
Should friends desire, in lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the family's account at Hamilton O'Dell Funeral Home.

The Burton family has entrusted their loved one to the care of Hamilton-O'Dell Funeral Home to direct the services.
