Phillip Eric Burton
1944 ~ 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Philip Eric Burton, loving husband and father, at the age of 75. 

Phil was born October 11, 1944 in Truro, Nova Scotia to Bill and Dorothy (Gardiner) Burton. He joined the RCMP after high school and went on to earn his Long Service medal. On October 4, 1969, he married the love of his life, Carol Andrew. They moved through various RCMP postings in rural Manitoba, to Ottawa and to Regina. Together they raised a daughter and two sons. Following retirement from the RCMP, Phil worked for the provincial government in Saskatchewan. Once Carol retired, they moved to Morden where Phil enjoyed many happy (and a few not so happy) hours on the Minnewasta Golf Course. 

Phil was preceded in death by his parents, Bill and Dot Burton, his siblings, Billie, Deryl, Gardiner, Cookie and Donna and his grandson, Michael. He is survived by his wife, Carol, daughter, Renée (Curtis) Englot and granddaughters, Georgia and Sadie, son, Tim (Jill) and grandsons, Kinley, Oliver and Nate and son, Matt (Amanda) and grandsons, Caleb and Lucas as well as many beloved brothers and sisters-in-law, cousins, nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews. 

The family of Phil Burton would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to family and friends at the passing of our father and husband. Your kind words and deeds were much appreciated. A special thanks to Dr. Woelk, the BTHC cancer care staff and palliative care staff. Words cannot express our gratitude. Thank you.
