Joseph E. Burka, Sr.

It is with a sad heart that I inform you of the passing of one of our long-time residents and a dedicated member of the Lincoln Park Fire Department - Joseph E. Burka, Sr., age 91, passed away on Friday, September 27, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.  Joe lived in Lincoln Park since 1950.
Joe was an active member of the Lincoln Park Volunteer Fire Department for more than sixty-four years, first serving with Hose Company #2 before joining Company #1.  He had the patience of a saint and he took great pride in teaching everything he knew to new firefighters.  He was also an active member of the Lincoln Park Lions Club.
