Darrell E. Burch

Tuesday, January 20, 2015

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of former OSSC member Darrell E. Burch.  This is an excerpt from his obituary.  Thanks to Curt Deckert for bringing this to our attention.

"It is with deep sadness that we must let you know that our father, Darrell Burch, passed away on January 12 after a long battle with Parkinson's.  Through dad's devotion to education, family, friends and church, we were blessed with a great role model and father.  In times of need, dad was always the first one to provide whatever support was needed.  Although dad's ability to keep in contact with friends was limited in the last few years, he always cherished his family and the friendships that he and mom developed through the years.  We can't thank you enough for the love and kindness you shared with mom, dad and our entire family.  We will have a memorial service for dad at 2:00 pm Pacific Time on Saturday, January 24th at:  First Christian Church of Orange 1130 E. Walnut Orange, CA 92867.  In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Memorial Fund at First Christian Church of Orange.  Sincerely, Mary, Dave and Jerry."
