Lloyd F. Burson, Jr., a kind, selfless, and handy man, passed away surrounded by family on October 15, 2023, at Rose View Nursing and Rehabilitation center.
Born on September 16, 1943, in Mount Vernon, IL, he was a son of the late Lloyd F. Sr., and Meythal (Batman) Burson.
Lloyd was known for his unwavering strength, his love for his family, and his dedication to his country.
He was a member of Messiah Lutheran Church, VFW Post #7863, Duboistown and American Legion Post #1, Williamsport.
He proudly served in the United States Army for 21 years, including two tours during the Vietnam War. While stationed in Germany, he met the love of his life and adored wife, Elke M. (Schneider) Burson. Their love story persisted for over 60 years. After retiring from the military, he worked at Divine Providence Hospital in central supply sterilization.
Lloyd was a man of simple pleasures and found joy in the tranquility of yard work. His garage was his sanctuary, a place where he could tinker and fix, showcasing his handy skills. Above all, Lloyd was a family man. His greatest accomplishment and source of pride was his family. He ensured they never went without, working tirelessly to provide for them. He will be remembered as a good man, a loving husband, a dedicated father and grandfather.
Surviving in addition to his wife are four children, Frank Burson (Ellen), Denice Campbell (Rocky Giles), Patricia Shannon (Mike) and Iris Sullivan; 10 grandchildren; 15 great-grandchildren; a brother, Daniel Burson; a sister-in-law, Janet Burson; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.
In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his siblings, Mary Lou, Richard “Dick”, Edgar and Herbert Burson.
A funeral service to honor Lloyd’s life will be held 11 a.m. Friday, October 20 at Sanders Mortuary, 821 Diamond Street, Williamsport. Burial with military honors will follow in Wildwood Cemetery. The family will receive friends from 10:30 am until the time of service Friday at Sanders.
