In Remembrance


Stuart Burton

Stuart Todd Burton was born on April 1, 1966 to J.C. and Laurelei Burton in Midland, TX. With his brother, Jeff, the family traveled extensively throughout the world and enjoyed living in many cities across the United States.

He attended Texas A&M University, Class of 1988, earning a Bachelor of Science degree in Geology, then continuing on to earn a Master of Science degree in Hydrogeology from the University of Nevada, Reno. Stu worked as a Hydrogeologist, monitoring and testing water quality in rivers and aquifers in Colorado, Nevada, and Texas.

Stu was diagnosed with an Oligodendroglioma brain tumor in 1999. At this time, had underwent a craniotomy to remove the tumor and received radiation. Stu was told he had two years to live, however, the Lord had a different plan. Over the course of his journey he had seven recurrences, one requiring a second craniotomy in 2014, other courses of chemotherapy and treatment, but Stu lived life to the fullest for another 22 years.

Stu loved all things family, a good laugh with his friends, dogs, the Cayman Islands, his girls, fishing, hunting, God, his country, cold beer, and Texas A&M Football.

Stuart was released from his battle and the Lord brought him home on Tuesday, May 25, 2021 surrounded by his loving family.

Stu is survived by his wife, Jennifer, mother Laurelei, brother Jeff and wife Kathy, daughter Samantha, step-daughters Anna (Tobias), Lacy (Michael), nephews John (Abby), Colin, and grandson Hugo. He will forever live in all our hearts.
