Mr Burnside was born Aug. 11, 1916, in Haines, to James A. and Aplharette Shanklin Burnside. James had accompanied his parents John and Ann Elizabeth Naylor Burnside to Baker Valley over the Oregon Trail.

His survivors are son, Donald and wife, Audrey of Chehallis, son Jack and wife, Georgia of Tacoma, and sister Myrtle Burnside Music Johnson of Tacoma; numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces and nephews. A great grandson Allen Phillips of Baker City and many cousins in Baker Valley.

No services were held by his request. Burial will be at Alpha, Wash.

When Gilbert was born the family was asked "What will we name the baby?" Brother Marshall replied, "Uncle Bahaal" So Uncle Balaam Phillips went to the Haines Mercantile and bought the smallest pair of overalls in stock, a size 2, for his namesake.
