Paul Burleson Obituary

Paul Eddie Burleson 

Age 72, left this world behind for his eternal heavenly home on April 2nd, 2024 after a long battle with cancer. 

Eddie was the son of the late Paul Burleson and Jean Johnson Travis. He was also proceeded in death by a younger brother, Keith Burleson; and his stepmother, Betty Burleson; and several aunts, uncles and cousins. 

During his younger days, Eddie was a standout athlete for Bowman High School. He excelled in Football and Basketball, winning several school awards. Eddie also loved to be outside enjoying Gods creation. He seemed to have a sixth sense for finding ginseng and had an unmatched passion for catching native trout. In his own words “you can’t even imagine how many specks I’ve caught”. He was also a hunter of pretty much every game animal around, but turkey hunting seemed to be his favorite. 

Eddie worked most of his adult life at the Quartz Corporation. He retired in 2022 with over 32yrs of service. Eddie made many close friends during his time there.

Eddie had many titles while he was here on this Earth, his favorite seeming to be “Papaw”. His love for his family will live on through them for generations to come. 

Surviving are his wife of 38 years, Judy; sons Edward (Stacey) and Michael (Kasey) all of Bakersville; grandsons Samuel White, Israel and Isaiah Burleson; stepfather Tom Travis of Kernersville; numerous cousins, nephews, nieces and a host of other family and friends. 

Funeral Services will be held 3:00 PM Sunday, April 7, 2024 in the Silver Chapel Baptist Church with Rev. Mark McKinney, Rev. Dean Honeycutt, and Rev. Anthony Penland officiating. The family will receive friends from 1:30 to 3:00 PM. Burial will follow the service in the church cemetery.

The family would like to thank all who cared for Eddie in his final days. They would also like to thank everyone who visited, called and prayed for them during their time of need.
