Obituary for Ronald J. Burza

Born: December 9th, 1939
Passed Away: August 10th, 2014


Ronald J. Burza was born on December 9, 1939 in Vassar, Michigan to the late Joseph and Frances (Pelica) Burza and passed away on Sunday August 10, 2014 at Sanctuary at the Shore Nursing Home in Grand Haven, Michigan. Ron is survived by his two sons and their families, Brett Burza and his sons, Kaden, Jace, and Jevin; Bart (Tina) Burza and their children, Ashlyn and Braden; his sister, Joanne (Alvin) Auernhammer. Along with his parents he was preceded in death by a brother, Richard Burza; a granddaughter, Mackenzie and his former wife, Sharon McIntyre. One of his great joys in life was being an educator at Meridian Public Schools for 28 years. There are many stories that he could tell and sure could be told by the students he interacted with over that time. To say that he was an interesting character would only scratch the surface of who he truly was. According to his wishes he has made an anatomical gift to the University of Michigan Medical School and private family services have been held. Contributions in memory of Ronald J. Burza can be made to the Meridian Scholarship Fund at the Midland Community Foundation, 76 Ashman Circle, Midland Michigan 48640 or at the Midland Community Foundation website www.midlandfoundation.org
