Amarillo, Texas--Richard Earl Burns, child of God, passed of Covid-19 and COPD on Oct. 31, 2020 at the age of 67. He was born to Lenora and Everett Burns and grew up in Garnett, Kansas. He graduated from Garnett High School in 1971 and attended Hutchinson community College. He excelled on mainline computers in the 70's and worked for several large banks and companies in Texas, Kansas City and Arizona. Richard never stayed in one place too long and loved traveling, motorcycling, biking and camping. Although disabled for many years, he never complained about his disability. Richard lived life on his own terms. He had a joke for any topic.
Richard was preceded in death by his loving mother Lenora Stricker Burns. He is survived by his father Everett Earl Burns of Salina, Kansas, sister Penny Hulett (John Mark) of Lolo, Montana, two nephews, two aunts, two uncles and many cousins.
Cremation had taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date.
"The Lord is close to the broken hearted.
He rescues those whose spirits are crushed." Psalm 34:18.
