Tom worked for many years, retiring from the Singer Sewing Machine Company in Elizabeth, New Jersey. For a number of years, Tom was actively involved in organizing and attending the Burr Family Reunion. He was always recognized as the longest-living member of the Burr family. Tom loved to travel and always drove. Assisting him on one of his last trips was his daughter, Ann Burr Burns and her husband, Bill. Tom leaves to cherish his memories a devoted sister, Martha Alice Burr Fletcher, his children, nieces, nephews and scores of faithful cousins and friends.
