Burton Carley

NAHMA JUNCTION, Mich. – Burton Carley, 58, of Nahma Junction, Mich., died suddenly on Saturday, Dec. 2, 2017.

He was born to Harold and Zephrine (Loritz) Carley on Nov. 7, 1959, in Manistique, Mich., the youngest of eight children.

He enjoyed being outside and working with his family out in the woods. He was proud of his career as a logger, loved running his power saw, and would boast “I’m the best there ever was!”

The thing he loved most was spending time at the lake with his family and friends.

Burt was happily married to Suzanne (Frey) Carley and enjoyed 24 loving years together raising their three children, Andrew (23), Ryan (21) and Abigail (13).

In addition to his children, he is survived by his sisters, Jacqueline, Carolyn, Theresa (Jim), Rosalie; and brothers, Gilbert and John.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his sister Joyce (Ron).

There will be a party to celebrate his life at Foote Lake on Saturday, Dec. 9, at 2 p.m.
