Karl J. Burns

Karl Jon Burns, age 60, cherished and beloved father and husband, went peacefully to his heavenly home on Wednesday, March 18, 2020. Karl was born on September 10, 1959 in Zeeland, the son of Calvin (Julie) Burns and Drusilla (William) LeBlanc. Karl was a loyal employee of General Motors for thirty years. He was a longtime member and elder at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Caledonia. Karl enjoyed cooking, making wine, hunting, scuba diving, motorcycles, and collecting antiques. He especially loved Halloween, was an avid fan of the University of Michigan sports, The Wizard of Oz, and Elvis. Karl is survived by his wife Bonnie (Teunissen) Burns, children, Kirk (Tina) Burns, Kody (Margie) Burns, and Amanda Burns; grandson, Kalvin Burns; sisters, Dee (Mike) Messenger and Nicki (Brent) Peterson; brothers, Ken (Amy) Burns and Keith (Jacki) Burns; step siblings, Jim, Elain, and Judy; several nieces and nephews; many extended family and friends; and his beloved dog, Sparky. Karl was preceded in death by his father and mother. A celebration of life service will take place at St. Paul Lutheran Church at a later date. Private burial took place at Mount Hope Cemetery.

You were fun loving member of our family and we have known you since you and Bonnie starting dating in high school. You were always sharing your baked goodies at Christmas and your homemade wine, (which could be some pretty strong stuff!) and teasing Mom with some big story or another. You made quite a find with all those bottles you found when you were diving. You knew more facts about Elvis than anyone we knew. Thank you for your generous heart, always ready to help when asked. You leave an empty spot in our family, but you will always hold a special place in our hearts. You will be missed.
Anthony and Pam

So many great memories of Karl. 4th of July for many years as he and Bonnie hosted. Golf scrambles and tubing trips with his dad and brothers. One of my favorite memories was seeing him and Bonnie enjoy the Broadway production of Million Dollar Quartet, which features Elvis Presley, his favorite singer.
