Danny Euell Burk, age 65, of Shelbyville, Tenn., passed from this life on September 20, 2023, at Alive Hospice of Murfreesboro surrounded by his loving family.
Born April 13, 1958, in Lewisburg, Tenn., Danny was the son of Clancy T. Burk, Sr., deceased, and Clara M. Boyce and step-father, Bob Boyce.
Danny proudly served as a supervisor at Empire Berol for several years, and later retired from American Can after several years in order to build his part-time craft, Color Your World Painting.
From a young age, he understood the value of perseverance and the satisfaction that comes with a job well done. He exemplified the principle that success is not merely measured by wealth alone but by the pride and integrity one brings to their work, a trait that he instilled in his sons through his actions and guidance.
After retirement, Danny had a passion for collecting all things “antique”, which provided him moments of relaxation and joy. He always enjoyed educating anyone who would listen about his latest “find.”
Danny was a dedicated father who cherished his sons beyond measure. He imparted not only wisdom but also a strong work ethic bound by integrity. He took great pride in watching his sons grow into good and decent men and fathers, and his love for them knew no bounds.
Including his mother, he is survived by his two sons, Jamie E. Burk and his wife, Ashley, of Paragould, ARrk., and Wyatt Burk and his wife, Shelli, of Shelbyville, Tenn.; grandchildren, Mattie Claire, Jamison, Kaitlyn, Kennedy and Katherine; sister, Tonya Davis and her husband, Mike, of Shelbyville; brother, Clancy T. Burk, Jr. and his wife, Keska, of Shelbyville; step siblings, Gary Boyce, Angie Boyce, and Robin Boyce; along with a host of nieces and nephews.
Funeral services were held at 2 p.m. Saturday, September 23, 2023, in the Chapel of Doak-Howell Funeral Home with Clancy T. Burk, Jr. officiating. Burial followed at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens.
Visitation was held Saturday, September 23, prior to funeral services beginning at 11 a.m. at the funeral home.
