  • Notes 
    • George Leland (Lee) Burningham 1931 ~ 2005 KAYSVILLE - Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, and patriarch, passed away the evening of May 10, 2005, at the age of 74, following a valiant fight with prolonged illnesses. He was born on January 9, 1931 in Salt Lake City to George Leland Burningham and Ina Smith. He grew up in Bountiful and Holladay, Utah. He loved playing basketball and enjoyed playing varsity basketball at Granite High School, where he excelled despite limited use of his right arm due to a break suffered in a childhood horseback riding accident. He was sealed to Emily McDonald in the Salt Lake Temple by his uncle Joseph Fielding Smith on June 21, 1950. An athlete and three degree graduate of the University of Utah, he received his doctorate degree in Education. He was an educator and public servant all of his life. He served in the Granite and Murray school districts, and in the Weber County School District, where he created the Weber School District Educational Foundation, pioneering private funding and community support of public school initiatives. He culminated his career as the Utah State Superintendent of Public Instruction where he continued to work tirelessly for the welfare of Utah students. He also served in the Far West Lab, as a consultant for McConnell Ralston Davis at Stanford University, and as a member of President Reagan's Council on Public Education. He also served in the Utah State House of Representatives. He was active in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, holding numerous callings including bishop, high counselor, and other stake and ward leadership positions. His educational background aided in his service on the General Sunday School Board and Curriculum Committee of the Church. The love of his life was missionary work. Following an early retirement, he served proscelyting missions with his dear wife as his companion in the Tahiti, Papeete Mission, and the Zaire, Kinshasa Mission, where they were privileged to be the first missionaries in the Republic of the Congo, Brazzaville. They also served CES missions to Fiji and in Davis County. They later served in the Washington D.C. Temple. His family was his treasure. He loved to have his extended family around him where he could teach and share his testimony with them. He is survived by his wife, Emily, and children, Lee (Zan) Burningham, Bruce (Kim) Burningham, Marilyn (Kent) Critchlow, Janet (Steve) Rose, Brenda (Blaine) Fowler, Brent (Debbie) Burningham, 28 grand children and 16 great-grandchildren with four more soon to arrive, and siblings, Norman (Barbara) Burningham, Kathy Wilson, and sister-in-law, Peggy (Paul) Burningham. He is preceded in death by his parents, a daughter, Barbara Burningham Izatt, and brother, Paul Burningham. We thank the many doctors, nurses, and staff of IHC, in particular Dr. Jeffrey Call, who assisted in his treatment, for their tremendous love and care. Funeral services will be held Saturday, May 14, 2005 at 2 p.m. at the Kaysville Crestwood Ward, 1039 E. Crestwood Rd. Friends and family may call Friday at Lindquist's Kaysville Mortuary, 400 North Main, from 6 to 8 p.m. and Saturday from 12:30 to 1:30 at the church. Interment, Bountiful City Cemetery. You may e-mail your condolences to the family at llm@lindquistmortuary.com Published in the Deseret News from 5/12/2005 - 5/13/2005.
