David Blaine Burket, of Virginia Beach, went to be with the Lord on Saturday, May 28, 2016, at the age of 78 years. He was born on May 16, 1938 to William E. and Carolyn (formerly Schildt) Burket in Altoona, Pennsylvania.
David served his country for four years in the United States Air Force. Once he began working after that, he enjoyed it so immensely, he hated to stop-just recently retiring after thirty-three dedicated years for Acosta Sales and Marketing, where he was responsible for retail services, at the age of 77. When he was not working, he enjoyed his family, gardening, and yard work. David was also a member of London Bridge Baptist Church.
David was preceded in death by his parents and brother Richard Burket.
He is survived by his loving wife Ruth Ann “Ruthie,” with whom, on June 24, he would have celebrated 55 years of marriage. Also left to cherish David’s memory are his son Scott David Burket; daughter Stephanie Evangelista and her husband Augustus; granddaughter Kayla Goodman-Evangelista and her fiance Richard K. De Jesus; granddaughter Brelynn B. Evangelista; brother William E. Burket, Jr. and his wife Jean; and sister Susan Cardwell-Givens. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
