NATICK: John A. Burton, 66, of East Boston passed peacefully at his childhood home in Natick on Saturday, October 26, 2019.
He is preceded in death by his mother, Evelyn, father, Stanley and brother Bruce. John is the beloved brother of Craig S. Burton and his wife Rose, Kathleen A. Arnold and Robert W. Burton and his wife Maura. He was the proud uncle to eight nieces and nephews who lovingly called him “UJ”.
John will be fondly remembered by family and friends for his deep sense of loyalty to others, camaraderie, love of sailing, for telling a good joke and his unmistakable laugh. His smile and laughter remain in our hearts forever.
