UPDATED: The Passing of Mike Burke

Mike Burke

From Amelia Burke:

Memorial Service for Mike Burke
At: The Art Center at Dunham
1945 Dunham Way
Cincinnati, OH 45238

January 6th at 3:00pm

This memorial is informal, we will have some speakers. Mike would not want anything fancy.

I would like everyone to share their stories and memories. He was a wonderful person and will be greatly missed.

There will be snacks and beverages provided.

From John Wesseling:

For those of you who have not heard let through social media, our community theater community lost a very special man on Friday.

Michael [Wayne] Burke passed away Friday morning after a 6 month fight with Lymphoma.

Mike was a founding member of the Sunset Players and was just 58 year young. He was truly the kindest man I have ever met. He cared about everyone he knew – and many he didn’t. I could go on for pages as to why Michael was, and iso special. But if you are one of the hundreds of people whose lives he touched, you will already know why!

I know that this is somewhat of a religious phrase (and Mike was not a church-goer – yet still a man of great faith), there will be a celebration of his life, a memorial celebration on January 6th at 3pm at the Dunham Arts Center, home of the Sunset Players.

All are welcome!

If you desire, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Michael’s name at either, The Arts Center at Dunham/Sunset Players (sunsetplayers.org) and/or The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (http://www.lls.org/).

From Jerry Yearout:

The world has just lost a great man. Mike Burke just passed away after his long battle with cancer. He was surrounded by his wife Amelia and friends. Please keep his family and friends in your thoughts.

I will post funeral arrangements when they become available. -Rob

    This is such a shock. I met Mike through my wife Marilyn, who was in many shows with Mike. We’re so sorry to hear about this and so sorry for his families loss.
