David B. "Dudley" Burnett

David B. Burnett “Dudley,” 50, of Clayton, New Jersey, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Saturday, June 20, 2020. 


He was a loving and caring husband, father, brother, uncle and friend. He loved a good cup of coffee and jumped at the opportunity to engage in conversation. He also loved spending time with family and friends, hunting and fishing. He was a leader and a jack of all trades. If there was ever a problem, everyone knew that “Dudley” could solve it. A man of many words and many talents, everyone can agree that he was “one of a kind.” He took risks, broke boundaries and always lived life to the fullest. He lit up every room he entered, was kind to every person he met and truly left an impact that will last forever. His legacy will live on in all of the people he encountered throughout his life.


He is the beloved husband of 25 wonderful years to Julie Burnett (nee Strohm).  Devoted father of Bailey and Quinton.  Son of the late Wanda and William Burnett.  Dear brother of Patricia (Allen), William (Joyce) and the late Catherine (James). He will be missed by many friends and family.
