Raymond Burkhardt

Raymond "Poppy" Burkhardt, 71, of Fredericksburg passed away Monday, June 2, 2014, surrounded by his loved ones at home after a courageous battle with cancer.

He is survived by his wife of 47 years, Susan Isaacsohn Burkhardt; his son, Edward Burkhardt (Beth) of Philadelphia; and his daughter, Leah Macomber (Darren Halsey) of Falmouth; his grandchildren, Ashley Churchill, Craig and Scott Burkhardt of Philadelphia and Amy and Jessica Macomber of Falmouth; and a host of loving relatives and friends.

Ray's greatest wish was that his children and grandchildren always know how much he loved them and that they walk through the rest of their lives knowing he will always be there for them any way he can. Ray enjoyed cooking for his family, gardening, playing cards and shooting pool with his friends at Celebrate Virginia.

Please join the family for a graveside service at 2:30 p.m. Wednesday, June 4, at Oak Hill Cemetery, 1902 Plank Road, Fredericksburg. Ray requested that his family and friends dress in casual clothes.

The family thanks Medi Home Health and Hospice for providing the care and support needed through this difficult time.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in his memory be made to VCU Massey Cancer Center, Box 83402, Richmond, VA 23284; or to a charity of one's choice.
