Obituary of William F Burow

William (Bill) F. Burow passed away suddenly on March 28, 2020 at the age of 73.


Bill was born in Camden, he attended Woodbury High School and was a Navy Veteran of the Vietnam War.  He was a retired Marine Diesel Technician for McAllister Towing.


Bill is survived by his wife Regina (nee McMullen); his children Heather Leahy (Tim) and Raymond (Molly); his grandchildren Patrick, Shannon, Aidan, Finnian, Ella, Tim Jr. (Heatheranne) and Jessica; his great grandchildren Hailee and Cassandra; his brother James (Beth); his father and mother in law (Raymond & Margaret McMullen); his sisters in law Deborah Ball and Colleen Tighe (John) and many nieces and nephews.  He is predeceased by his parents Henry and Emma Burow and his sister Joyce Burow.


Bill loved spending time with his family and his dog, Jack.  He never missed an episode of Jeopardy or Wheel of Fortune. He enjoyed music of all kinds, cars of the Dodge variety, the Philadelphia Phillies, Mt. Rushmore, naps and ice cream.  


Due to the current environment a memorial service to celebrate Bill will be held at a later date.  In the meantime, in his honor, please raise a glass, listen to your favorite song, watch the opening credits of the movie Philadelphia, and make someone smile today!
