Michael Patrick “Mike” Burke, 39, of Westminster, MD passed away on Friday, January 19, 2018 surrounded by his family at Carroll Hospice Dove House, after a courageous 2 year battle with lung cancer. Mike was born on July 15, 1978 in Pottstown, Pennsylvania and was the son of Richard Francis Burke of Phoenixville, PA and Susan Jane (Montgomery) Burke-Mangano and her husband Joseph Mangano of Ocean City, New Jersey. He was the cherished husband of his college sweetheart for 16 ½ years, Michele Lynn Burke, whom he married on July 28, 2001. Mike was a graduate of Pottsgrove High School, class of 1996. He graduated with a Bachelor Degree in Sports Management from York College in 2000. He began a dedicated career that he loved- working in ticket operations for the Ravens in 2000, just in time to see them win Super Bowl XXXV. His competitive nature advanced him to become the director of ticket sales and hospitality for 18 years. Mike was a devoted father to his four children. He loved spending time with them; especially coaching their basketball and soccer teams. Surviving in addition to his parents and wife are adoring children; twins Brennan Michael Burke and Christian Michael Burke, Adam Michael Burke, and Lily Elizabeth Burke; brother Christopher Montgomery Burke of Philadelphia, PA; numerous beautiful nieces and nephews; and a loving large extended family.

I met Mike at Dr. Beals office while we were both undergoing IV treatments. He struck me as a loving family man and a dedicated professional at his job with the Ravens. Despite what he was dealing with, he was positive and optimistic. I'm so sorry for the loss his family has suffered. With sympathy and prayers, Kathy Custer
