Burgess Jr., Frank E., St. Charles, Michigan


Passed away May 25, 2012 in Oceana County from the result of a house fire. Age 23 years. Frank was born July 9, 1988 in Saginaw to Frank E. and Jacqueline M. (Devota) Burgess. Frank loved his job at Cignys of Shields and was taking classes for an apprenticeship to become a machinist. Frank has always loved to hunt with gun and bow and he could catch a fish in a mud puddle. Both his grandpas and his dad were special fishing buddies. He also had a need for speed. Frank enjoyed his dirt bike both on the dunes and motor-cross. He was very proud of his Duramax. His Jeep was his most recent passion on the dunes and sand drags. Frank also got a kick out of going faster than his dad. He was a man of few words but was kind and gentle and had a very special love for our pets.
