Michael Allen Burnette, known to many as "Mike," passed away on May 8, 2024, in his hometown of Abingdon, VA. He was born on August 31, 1952, in Washington County, VA to the late John Burnette and Mary Greer Burnette.
Mike led a fulfilling life dedicated to hard work and community service. He graduated from Abingdon High School and went on to have a successful career spanning over 40 years at Westinghouse.
