Pacolet, SC- Richard Alan Burton, 64, passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, October 29, 2020. Rick was born on August 31, 1956 in Pearisburg, Virginia to Robert and Dorothy Burton.

Rick is survived by his wife, Betsy; his children, Sutton and Sadie; his sister, Becky (Mike); and brother, Bob; along with many well-loved nieces, nephews, and cousins. Rick was a devoted husband and father. He adored and supported his family as his first priority. He especially loved family adventures, the mountains, and his rescue dog, Gus.
