  • Brian Burke,Past President and Paul Harris Fellow

    Brian Burke Partners Lunch 2011It is with great sadness we have to report the death on Thursday 18th August of Past President Brian Burke.

    PP Brian was an outstanding member of the Rotary Club of Lisburn for 27 years having joined in 1984.

    A Paul Harris fellow Brian was the perfect role model for any aspiring Rotarian.

    Oustandingly in all his years of service he could boast of 100% attendance.

    Brian was a well known and a highly acclaimed ladies hairdresser with salons in Lisburn and Belfast.

    He was a former member of Lisburn Round table and a member of the Lisburn 41 club until his untimely death in the Royal Victoria Hospital

    Brian was admitted to the City hospital in June for tests in connection with a heart problem. He was later transferred to the Royal Victoria Hospital for Surgery.

    The heart operation was a success but sadly complications set in and despite the excellent care of staff n the Intensive Care Unit, he never fully recovered and passed away on Thursday.

    Brian is survived by his wife Edith,daughter Gaenor and  his sister Avril. His  brothers John and Tom are travelling from Canada for the funeral on Tuesday August 23rd at Legacurry Presbyterian Church at 2.00pm and we offer our deepest sympathy to all the family.

    We all loved Brian very much and he will be missed greatly in Rotary and especially in the Kitchen Club which he loved so much.

    A  full obituary from Gordon Hanna, Brians long time friend is on the Club News page.
