Obituary of Patrick J Burke
Patrick “Pat” Burke passed on February 21, 2019, age 60 years, and is now reunited with his parents J. Larry and Peggy Burke. He leaves behind his son, Ken and daughter, Angela. Pat is further survived by brothers, Tim (Maureen), Kevin, Bill, Bob, Dan (Nicole) and sisters, Mary (Mike) Burke Ryan and Ann (Christopher) Grounds. He is also survived by a host of relatives and friends.
Pat was born into a Pontiac family and loved fast things. He loved working on cars and restoring his GTO. It was no surprise that his jobs would take him on the road. Pat was a supplier of produce to restaurants and grocery stores in the Milwaukee area. He would be the one to roast the corn at any family get together. While living in Alabama, he was an autoroute parts salesman. His other great love was his speed boat, and he spent many weekends with friends and family on the water, boating and water skiing. He took great pride in his beloved Green Bay Packers and passed his love onto his children.
