Le’Roy “DEL” Burns
Passed away due to a tragic accident on April 09, 2012 at Loyola Hospital at 52 years of age. He was a lifelong resident of Romeoville, IL; He was preceded in death by his parents Charlie G. Burns and Betty (Salter) his beloved grandmother Lucille Salter. He is survived by his brother James R. Burns, sister in law Leslie, and his three nephews MARINE LCPL Christopher J. Burns, MARINE LCPL Kevin J. Burns (Taylor), and Eric Burns. Their love for him was that of a second father, he was always more than an Uncle. His beloved dog Rowdy and fat cat Tiger. His Uncle Tip Burns, cousins Sam Burns (Janice), Jeff Burns (Debbie), Justin, David, Ron, (Ann), Ron, Jessica, and Curtis Keith. His lists of best friends are Don, Heather, Gina, Jerry, George, Jenny, Ron, Linda, Tim and Steve. He was loved and touched by so many I could not begin to list them all. His kind and welcome heart attracted people to him. His adventurous spirit led him to classic cars, motor cycles, snowmobiles, and the bigger the boat the better, I guess what we are saying is the more power he could get the better. He was a member and President of the Time Machines Car club. He worked for the village of Romeoville for over 35 years, during his time with the village he was always a part of the union affairs. He lived his life ever day to the fullest, made friends where ever he went. Loved to dance, camp, and just play outdoors with his many friends and family. He played football and wrestling in high school, there is not a member of the Romeoville High from 1972 to 1980 that would not know his name or speak of him in a kind way. This town, these people and hundreds of others from any car show, boat show, or any man or women on the street whether they knew him or not would like him right away. He will be missed by hundreds and forgotten by none. We love you Del and believe you will forever walk with us every day for the rest of our lives until we see you again.
