Larry Lee Burton was born in Parkersburg, West Virginia, to the late Lewis and Ivadeen Burton on May 18, 1940. He was a true West Virginia boy who loved sports and as a young man excelled at football. His charm and charisma led him in his early life to a successful career as a salesman. In his later years, he worked for the Civil Service. Surely a man of many talents, Larry could repair any vehicle, make a delicious meal, and find the bargains for everything we needed.
