Obituary

Robert B. Burns, 86, of Tolland, beloved husband of the late Ludmilla (Donner) Burns passed away Monday, February 25, 2019. He was born September 13, 1932 in Springfield, MA, the son of the late Carl and Frances (Comstock) Burns. He worked at Smith and Wesson (S&W) and joined the United States Marine Corps in 1952 where he became a drill sergeant at Parris Island, South Carolina. When he returned to civilian life, he resumed working at S&W while attending the American International College (AIC) in Springfield, where he met his future wife. They moved to Washington D.C. where he worked at the Department of Defense. He later moved to Connecticut to join Pratt & Whitney as an Economist and stayed for over 33 years. During that time, he attended the University of Connecticut earning a Masters Degree in Business Administration. He created ROM Associates in 1994 along with two former Pratt & Whitney colleagues where he retired in 2014.

It was a privilege to be Roberts's physician for many years before I retired. I love economics and we had many stimulating discussions. He will be dearly missed. My heartfelt condolences to his family.

My deepest condolences to the family for their loss. May the many good memories you have of Robert bring you comfort. The God of all comfort sees the tears brought on by the death of our loved ones Psalms 56:8. He yearns to bring back those sleeping in death Job 14:14,15 to a time when sickness,suffering and death will be no more. Revelation 21:4.
