Obituary

John F. Burke, Jr., age 36, of Drexel Hill, PA, passed away on January 3, 2022.   Born in Fort Walton Beach, FL, he was the son of John F. Burke, Sr. and Rosita E. Burke (nee Enriquez).

In addition to his parents, John is survived by his loving wife, Amy Burke (nee Carotenuto), his son Caedmon J. Burke, and their expected child.  Dear brother of Debra L. Burke (Mark Amadio), Theresa M. Payne (Christopher) and Michelle Burke (Julio Arreaga).  Also survived by his paternal grandmother, Bernadette L. Burke, One Aunt and Two Uncles.
