Thomas E. Burton, 76, husband of Susan K. Burton, of Edge Street, Ipswich, died Thursday June 14, 2018 in the Kaplan Family Hospice in Danvers.
Born in Toledo, Ohio on March 30, 1942, he was one of the nine children of the late Claude E. and Betty J. (Merritt) Burton. Thomas was raised in Toledo, a graduate of Toledo Public Schools and the University of Toledo.  He served an enlistment in the Army serving in Puerto Rico at the time of the Cuban Crisis.
Married in Ohio in 1967, the Burtons lived in Michigan for the next four years, making Edge Street their home in 1970.
Tom was employed as the Fiscal Manger in the Woburn office of Learning Innovations, Division of WestEd of California. He retired June 1 of this year after twenty-two years of service. He worked well past retirement because he loved his job and more importantly he loved the people he worked with.

this summer.
