Remembering Richard Burke

Remembering Richard Burke
April 13, 2022 at 10:00 a.m.

It is with great sadness that we report the loss of a good friend, former CRA Member and colleague in the roofing industry.  

Richard Burke (65) passed away on March 13, 2022 in Canton, Georgia. Richard was born January 31, 1957 to Robert (Bob) and Frances (Green) Burke in DeWitt, Iowa.

Richard had 23 years of hands-on roofing experience and 15 years as a roof consultant. From 1983 – 1990 he worked through the Roofers Local Union 32 Rock Island Illinois. From 1990-2003 he worked at D&D Roofing & WeatherSure Roofing in Denver, Colorado.

Richard began his roof consulting career with Cybercon Engineering in 2015 and in 2018 relocated to Georgia and worked for Southern Roof Consultants South Pasadena Florida. 

Richard came up through the low slope roofing business as a ”Hot Tar“ roofer and foremen. He made a point to become fluent in Spanish so he could better understand and communicate with his crew members. 

Richard was a long-time member of the Colorado Roofing Association as both a contractor and consultant. He was seen often at our membership lunches and pinpoint seminars.

Richard was a Registered Roof Observer, certified by the International Institute of Building Enclosure Consultants (IIBEC). During 2009-2016, he served as a director and a term as president on the IIBEC Denver Chapter Board of Directors.

He was an Iowa Hawkeyes and Chicago Bears enthusiast, enjoyed gambling, fishing and travel. He is survived by his wife Tami, two sons Russell and Robert, daughter Jade as well as his mother and sisters. 

May Richard rest in peace.

Celebration of Life/Memorial

Services will be held at a later date in Grand Mound, Iowa.
