Ira Clyde "Bud" Burden

April 13, 1950 - October 25, 2015

Ira Clyde “Bud” Burden, 65, of Suffolk went to be with the Lord, Sunday, October 25, 2015. Born in Tennessee, he was the son of the late Ira and Edna Burden.

Ira was a loving husband, father, grandfather and brother. He enjoyed drag racing, reading the Bible in the early morning, and spoiling his family. After leaving Tennessee in his early years he served his country in the U.S. Navy. Ira was loved by many, but will be missed by all.

Ira leaves behind his loving wife Theresa; daughter, Rosemary Smith; brother, David Burden; sister, Carolyn Whittenburg; grandchildren Isabella and Grayson Smith and a host of other relatives and friends. His son Randall J. Burden preceded him in death.
