Easter Regatta, Columbia Sailing Club 2009

We have many, many wonderful memories with Burton and Judy on and off the water. He contributed greatly to the sailing community, and we admired him for his dedication and leadership within US Sailing and SAYRA. Love and prayers for Judy and the family. You were blessed with a great husband, father and grandfather (and great-grand❤)
Carla, JC and Clayton Moore.

I've known Burton as long as I've been dating/married to my Wife Megan (Granddaughter), 10 years. Ever since, we bonded as family. I never got to know my grand-fathers, and he was the model, I hoped both my grandfathers would have been like. Though we wish he could be walking amongst us today, telling stories of the Old School Navy and fun times spent sailing and traveling, we know he's amongst friends in Heaven.
