Russell Burdette Obituary

Russell E. Burdette “Mickey” was born November 13, 1938 in Sissonville, WV to David Emerson and Merlie May Burdette. He departed from this world on October 29, 2023 to the arms of his Savior.

He was a man with a strong work ethic, generous heart, and a great sense of humor. Making people laugh was a life goal.

Besides his family and friends, he loved westerns and fast cars. One of his greatest achievements was running the food pantry at his church for 20 years. That was his baby. We are certain when he saw the Lord he was told “Well done, good and faithful servant.” He will be missed terribly.

Russ is preceded in death by the two loves of his life, Delores Jane “Sis” and Judy; five brothers; five sisters; and many others that he loved.

He is survived by his daughter, Denise Kelly; son, Jason; grandkids, Dustin (Samantha), Hayley (Aaron), Sarah, and Christina; great-grandkids, Collin and his favorite person, Danielle; and brothers, Roger (Kathy) and Ricky (Karen). He was the favorite uncle of many nieces and nephews. Also left behind are all the friends that were family to Russ.

Russ “Mickey” was a bright spot in many people’s lives. He will forever be remembered. In his honor, spread humor and love.

A memorial service will be held Sunday, November 5, 2023 at 4 p.m. at the Eastern Road Church of God, 2600 Eastern Rd, Rittman, OH 44270.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Eastern Road Relief Center would make him happy.
