Robert Burnett

CONNEAUT LAKE — Robert Burnett, 84, of Conneaut Lake, formerly of Masury, Ohio, passed away Wednesday, June 6, 2012, in McKinney, Texas.

Mr. Burnett was born Dec. 29, 1927, in Hickory Township, Mercer County, a son of the late Clayton and Mary Fromm Burnett.

He was a graduate of Hickory High School in Hermitage, and served with the U.S. Army as a secretary in Gen. George S. Patton’s headquarters in Heidelberg, Germany, during World War II.

Bob retired as chief electrician in 1992 from Wheatland Tube Co., where he was employed for more than 30 years.

He was a member of Our Lady Queen of the Americas Catholic Church, Conneaut Lake, and the Knights of Columbus, Masury.

He enjoyed water skiing, bowling and flower gardening.

Bob was a volunteer for many of the activities surrounding Conneaut Lake Park. He was a staunch supporter of Conneaut Lake and keeping the water clean and also the preservation of the park.

Bob dearly loved his family and will be missed by all who loved him. Surviving are his wife, the former Patricia Ann Peters, whom he married June 1, 1985; a daughter, Patti Marstellar Dantzler and her husband, Marion, of McKinne; a grandson, Robert N. Burnett, and a great-granddaughter, Mia Burnett, both of Pompano Beach, Fla.; and a brother, Charles Burnett of Masury.

Besides his parents, Bob was preceded in death by his first wife, the former Betty Ahenger, who died in 1980; a son, Robert C. Burnett, who died in 2007; a brother, John Burnett; and two sisters, Mary Evelyn Mangan and Delores M. Griffith.

The family suggests memorial contributions be made to Catholic Charities.

Calling hours will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Tuesday at J. Bradley McGonigle Funeral Home and Crematory Inc., 1090 E. State St., Sharon.

Friends may email condolences by visiting McGonigleFuneralHomeandCrematory.com.
