Robert Ormond "Bob" Burns
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: Sep. 27, 1911, USA
Death: Oct. 20, 1989
Kern County
California, USA

Bob married Lucile D. Rankin and they had one child, Adele. My uncle Bob lived most of his married life in Taft, Ca. Uncle Bob and Aunt Lucile lived in a house originally owned by his parents at 722 N. Lincoln St. He loved to do puzzles and always had a puzzle going when I would go and visit him.

The picture to the right is from Bob's parents, Nancy and Jesse's, 50th wedding anniversary. The photograph was taken in their daughter Lillian's living room in Arroyo Grande, Ca. Left to Right are Bob's sisters Beth Burns-Smith, Lillian Burns-Duffin, Thelma Burns-Mayhall, Bob and their parents Nancy and Jesse Burns. Bob is in the back. Bob did not like his picture taken and was always hiding behind something or someone.

Bob is survived by his wife Lucile, daughter Adele Krigbaum, son-in-law Woody Krigbaum, grandson Kenny Krigbaum (Gina) and granddaughter Lori Krigbaum. Bob is also survived by his mother Nancy Burns, sisters Beth Smith and Lillian (Thomas) Duffin and many nieces and nephews.

Bob was preceded in death by his father Jesse Burns, sister Thelma Mayhall, brother-in-law Charles Mayhall and brother-in-law Prentice Franklin Smith.

Bob's 4th great grandmother was Hannah Boone Stewart Pennington, the sister of Daniel Boone and the wife of John Stewart. Daniel Boone was Bob's 5th great uncle.
