Frankie L. Burton, 66, Columbia, KY (1950-2016)

He was a member of a large, highly respected family. He was the son of the late Delmar Lee & Arleter Jane Burton, and the widower of Sheila Ann Clements Burton. He leaves a great family, numbering 34 direct living descendants. He was a farmer and a warm, witty entertainer - the "Mayor of Burton Ridge," he would tell welcome visitors to his distinctive home at the top of the Narrows on KY 206, where he had fashioned his own one-of-a-kind paradise on earth. He had a special love of animals, especially his dogs, Lucky Lady & Diesel Pup. He never missed a chance to add a friend to the multitude he had already won. He made his place in the world, and will long be remembered.
