Leonard Lee Burton, Age 68, passed away Monday, January 6, in his home in Irons, Michigan. Born January 27, 1951 in Detroit, Michigan, he was the son of the late Leonard and Lillian (Kilpatrick) Burton. He was the beloved husband of Angela (Karell) Burton, husband of 13 years.

After graduating from Wyandotte's Roosevelt High School in 1969, he went to work for Chrysler at the Trenton Engine Plant. He spent 33 years at the plant, holding many different jobs, including Union Steward. He was able to retire from Chrysler in 2002.

Leonard was an avid hunter and loved being out in the woods. He also loved fishing, traveling and boating. He was a man of many trades and was always someone you could count on to help you build or fix anything. He touched the hearts of everyone he knew.

For most of his retired life, he spent the colder half of the year in Crystal River, Florida, returning to Irons for the warmer Michigan months.

Leonard loved spending time with his family, and is survived by his wife, Angela; daughter, Amy Burton-Massey and husband Alan; son, Kevin Burton; grandchildren, Mikaiyla, Mackensie, and Aiden; brother, George Burton; and many other extended family members.

There will not be a funeral at this time, but a Celebration of Life will be scheduled to be held sometime this summer.

We are very saddened at the loss of Lenny. We will always remember our last boat outing the day before you left for your trip out west before returning to Michigan and getting his diagnosis. Rest now Lenny and look down on all of us. Until we meet again.

Lenny was my little cousin. As a kid he could be a handful. He was a “typical boy” always looking to see what he could get into. One of my favorite memories was that his family would rent a cottage in the Irish Hills every summer for a week or two. One time when we went up to visit them, Len and I decided to take the boat out to go fishing 🎣. He was about 13 and I was 17. I can’t remember if we caught any fish that day; but I remember the lesson we learned. When the motor is giving you a hard time, and your cousin tells you to stand up, you don’t both stand up on the same side of the boat at the same time. We flipped the boat! We were soaking wet and his dad was flipping mad! We survived and laughed ourselves silly 🙃 over this memory last November when I visited him. Thanks for being a good provider, a good dad, and a good husband to Angie. You will be missed; but I believe I’ll see you again one day 🥰.
