NORTHFIELD — Christopher P. Burke, 26, of 59 Scribner Rd. died peacefully, surrounded by family, on Friday March 14, 2014 at Concord Hospital after complications with a lifelong heart condition.
Born on Sept. 30, 1987 in Franklin, NH, the son of Christine (Millis) Burke. Christopher loved operating anything with an engine, not surprisingly Christopher pursued a career in transport and earned his CDL and many other operating licenses. Christopher enjoyed time with family and friends, whether it was grilling out on a hot summer day to lazing about indoors on a cold rainy day. Christopher was a fun loving man, who always had something to say whether it funny, clever or down right outrageous. There was never a dull moment. It's impossible to sum Christopher up in one word, sentence or paragraph. Christopher was funny, honest, driven and brave, he was a protector and loved by all. His big smile and beautiful blue eyes will be forever engraved in our hearts.
He is survived by his grandmother, Wilhemina Millis, his mother Christine Millis (Burke) of Franklin, brothers, Alexander and Michael Burke. Christopher also leaves behind a fiancée, Johanna Rapalyea, and many nieces and nephews who will always love and miss their Uncle Chrissy!
