Clifford “Gus” Ross Burnett

Burnett(July 10, 1952 – September 14, 2015)
Cliff ‘Gus’ Burnett departed this life with loved ones by his side on September 14th, 2015. Cliff lived on Bolivar Peninsula with his wife Jacque and dogs ‘Casino’ and ‘Buck’. He was a master electrician (known as Cliff the Electrician) by trade but avid fisherman by heart. He had a reputation as the best shark tooth finder, and he loved his early morning beach combing. Cliff landed on the Crystal Beach shores after having lived as far away as Hawaii, and Nevada (yes, a gold digger). He graduated from Cooper High School in Abilene and spent many years in the Fort Worth/Granbury area.

Cliff will be greatly missed by his family: wife Jacque, brother Richard (pre-Ike CB resident), best fishing buddy brother Ray on the canal, sister Anita, and numerous much-loved nieces and nephews.

Remembrance and celebration of Cliff’s life will be held at The Crystal Beach Community Church at 1020 Diamond Road in Crystal Beach, with visitation on Friday, Sept. 18th from 6-8 pm and funeral services on Saturday, Sept. 19th beginning at 10 am with a reception to follow.
