William (Bill) John Burns

William (Bill) John Burns – 73 of Camano Island, passed away at home on August 7th 2014 surrounded by his family after a 3 year battle with Kidney Cancer.

Bill was born in Ironwood MI on April 16, 1941 to Donald and Florence Burns. Bill was one of four children; his sister Rae Marie Lorenson preceded his death.

Survived by his sister Ruth (Dick) Friedel – Nast and brother Peter (Cathy) Burns.

Bill graduated from Goodrich High School in 1960. He then began a 40-year Career with Mercury Marine as a Technician. He climbed the corporate ladder and retired as Director of Sales.

Bill and Mary (Annen) were married April 11, 1964, having three children: Terrie, Mike and Jenny. Bill and Mary began their life in Fond Du Lac, WI before moving to Hastings, MN and settling in Kirkland, WA.

Bill never met a stranger and treated everyone as a lifelong friend. During his retired years, Bill loved to have coffee and doughnuts each morning – solving the world’s problems. Nothing in Bills life rivaled his love of family and his ten grandchildren (Kelsey, McKenna, Conner, Annie, Molly, Caroline, Jack, Turner, Marley and Morgan)

Services will be held August 16th Stanwood, Washington. Reception immediately following at the Floyd Norgaard Center.
