Robert Burris

Place of birth: Galviston Texas

Religious affiliation: Other

Robert didn’t have any enemies. He was the kind of person who saw the good in everybody and tried to be friends. As a result, he was surrounded by an amazing network of people that he had been building since he was in high school. He graduated from Fountain Hills High School in Fountain Hills, AZ in 2003, where he co-wrote the song used in his graduation and every graduation since at FHHS. He moved to Colorado in 2009, and absolutely loved it there, becoming a Broncos, Avalanche, and Rockies fan. He was a one-of-a-kind salesman, one who didn’t want to sell you something to make money but to sell you something because you needed it. He was also a friend and coach, and at the time of his death was up for manager at TruGreen, as well as maintaining a second part-time job at Big State Industrial. He was married in May of 2014, and he and his wife had been trying to start a family, but it hadn’t happened yet. He was incredibly supportive of her completing her Bachelor’s and becoming a certified teacher. In his free time, Robert enjoyed playing and reviewing video games, watching movies, playing poker, and spending time with his friends. He was an incredibly talented writer, and aspired to be a published author.

Funeral Notice Detail

Robert passed away on November 4, 2014, after a prolonged illness that began on September 4, 2014, while on a short trip to Las Vegas. While the origins of his illness were unclear, he was diagnosed with pneumonia that exacerbated an underlying pulmonary hypertension and made it difficult for him to wake up from the sedation he was placed under to let his lungs heal. As a result of this sedation, he developed pressure wounds and the sepsis from these wounds caused him to become incredibly unstable November 3rd. The following evening, surrounded by family and friends, life support was withdrawn from Robert and he passed away quickly at 7:20pm PST. A celebration of life will be held on November 22, 2014, at 10:00 am at the Candlewood Meeting Hall in the Candlewood Suites DTC location: 10535 El Diente Ct, Englewood, CO 80112.
