Andrew Alan Burke

Andrew Alan Burke passed away on October 25, 2022.

Much loved son, father, brother & friend, Andrew Alan Burke, left us too soon on October 25, 2022. He was born September 21, 1965 in Anaheim, CA. He grew up in Orange County and spent his childhood surrounded by books, science, and art—loves that would inspire his many hobbies and talents. He spent the last few years of his life with his father, Don, and stepmother, Ann, in Cottage Grove.

Andrew was an incredible Renaissance man who was able to excel at any hobby or activity he picked up. He was a resource for so many; our family’s own search engine. Andrew was witty and loved an inappropriate joke. His loud, distinctive laugh (and sneeze) will be missed. 

Andrew is survived by his father & stepmother, Don and Ann Burke, mother & stepfather, Susan and Carl Thomason, sister, Janis, daughters, Alexandra, Madeline, Meredith, Katherine, Faith and Sophia, and his chosen son, Christopher. 

A Celebration of Life service will be held on November 19, 2022, at Chapel of Orange in Orange, CA
