RIP John J. Burns, Jr.

It is with great sadness that we share the news of the sudden passing of our Vice Chairman and Principal Owner, John J. Burns, Jr., in Naples, FL.

Paul tells us in his first letter to the Corinthians, Chapter 13:13, “And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love. But the greatest of these is love.”

Mr. Burns certainly loved this organization and all of its members. He truly treasured SBL and was fond of saying, “The best thing about Superior is it’s people.”

His wishes were for us to continue to grow and prosper. One of the greatest ways to honor his desires is to persist to that end. By performing our duties to the best of our abilities each day, we will fulfill this hope. Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Burns family. May he rest in eternal peace.

A wake will be held Friday, March 17, 2017 from 3-6pm at Hoyt’s Funeral Home, 195 Oenoke Ridge, New Canaan, CT 06840.
The funeral will be at St. Aloysius Church, 40 Maple Street, New Canaan, CT 06840 at 2:30pm on Saturday, March 18, 2017.

John J. Burns, Jr.
