James Robert Burns

James Robert Burns 89, of Dahlgren went to meet his Heavenly Father on Saturday, Jan. 12, 2013  
He was born on March 13, 1923 in MeGehee, Arkansas to James Oliver Burns and Ruby Kirk Burns.


He was preceded in death by his wife of sixty-two years, Halcyon Clare Burns of King George County.

He is survived by his three children, Marty Burns Wolfe of Denver, CO, Kirk Jefferson Burns of King George and Deb Burns Crowl and her husband, Colonel Daniel Crowl, USMC (ret) of King George.

He was also blessed with four granddaughters, Jennifer Burns Taylor and her husband Randy of Stafford, Kirstyn Danielle Thomas and her husband Kristofer of Cincinnati, OH, Brittany Crowl Ericson and her husband, Captain Andrew Ericson, USMC of NAS Patuxent River , MD, Lauren Elizabeth-Naomi Crowl of Cincinnati, OH and Jaimilee Clare Crowl of King George.

James was the longest living member of his family, and was preceded in death by his two sisters and two brothers. His professional career was spent in government service at the Naval Systems Warfare Center-Dahlgren Division. He came to Dahlgren following his enlistment in the U.S. Navy.

He was very involved in the Masonic Fraternity, having held the position of 32nd Degree Mason. Past Master of the Lodge at Colonial Beach and also involved with the Kinsale and Warsaw chapters. He was dedicated to the principles of Masonry and very devoted to his faith and his church.

His is probably best remembered for his love of the water.  Whether it be teaching someone to waterski, oyster tonging on the Potomac, or rock fishing and crabbing in the Williams Creek, his love of the water shone through.

The family will receive friends from 6 to 8 p.m. Friday, January 18 at Nash & Slaw Funeral Home, King George, with a Masonic service following.  

The funeral will be held at 10 a.m. Saturday, January 19 in Oakland Baptist Church, Dahlgren.

Interment will follow in Potomac Baptist Cemetery, King George, where his final resting spot will be beside his wife.  The service will be conducted by his life long minister and very close friend, the Reverend Guy Mattox.
