Rev. Leonard Burson, 89, Cumberland, went to be with the Lord July 24, 2014 after a brief stay at Cambridge Health Care. Leonard was born August 29, 1924, in Morrow County, Ohio to the late Lawrence and Lula (Sipes) Burson.
Leonard is preceded in death by his parents, Lawrence and Lula Burson; sister, Doris Witschi; brother, Anthony Burson; sister, Rebecca Whitaker Russell; infant daughter, Karen; son-in-law, Bill Lytle; and son-in-law, Val Kunze.
Leonard is survived by his beloved wife of 69 years, Betty (Nicholas) Burson; five children: Esther (Bill) Hacker, Cambridge; Velma Kunze, Mt.

Rev. Burson was a retired minister who shared his love of the Lord with many people. His singing and joyful spirit will be missed, but we know he’s singing, whistling, and joking on the golden streets of heaven.
