Known as Harry. Passed away after a lengthy battle with cardiomyopathy (heart disease). He is surived by his ex-wife June Burns and children Alan, Lee, Julie and Jodie. His other son Henry "Harry" Alan Burns died in 1969. Dad was very much involved with Western Suburbs Junior Rugby League Club to which he was president for 9 years running. He spoilt his children with extravagence, I wanted a horse, but he didnt buy just any horse Young Monty he had to buy a thoroughbred race horse. That was the kind of man he was. We were always the first family in the neighbourhood to get the latest, like colour TV, swimming pool, car with electric windows, etc. Unfortunately his new wife, cruelly took his ashes. We don't know where they are and since she remarried shortly after his death, we find this hard to accept.

"They say that life is fleeting, I know that this is true, I left this world so quickly, with no goodbye to you. I know how much you miss me, your tears fall ever light, the pillow where you lay your head, is wet with them at night. I know your heart is hurting, the words we left, unsaid. I love you's left unspoken are spinning in your head. The strength that I have carried, that served to make you whole, remains to make you stronger, within your grieving soul. For you see, while you were weeping on the day I passed away, at the gravesite near the flowers where my loved ones knelt to pray, an angel came to see me, she took me by the hand, she led me to a kingdom in a very distant land. As I look down from the heaven, and see you standing there your heart so ever burdened with more weight than it can bear, I long to bring you comfort, I long to give you peace, I long to hold you closely, cause all your tears to cease. The joy I've found in heaven goes far beyond compare, the love that's so elusive, can be found here everywhere. The light is softly shining, there's no storm clouds here or rain. There's no tear drops found in heaven, there's no suffering, there's no pain. You needn't be so troubled, stay close to God and pray that someday we'll be together, one bright and glorious day. So my love, you shouldn't question my dear, you need not cry, I've gone to be with Jesus I really didn't die".
Cremated, Location of ashes is unknown.
Specifically: His new wife took his ashes but we have a memorial site at Pinegrove Cemetary.
