Arthur "Lum" Burba

January 20, 1952 ~ May 13, 2018 (age 66)

Arthur H. Burba, known to all as “Lum”, passed away just before sunrise on Sunday May 13, 2018 at Trinity Nursing Home in Beavercreek, Ohio where he was a patient for the last 2 1/2 weeks.  Lum had spent more than 30 days in Miami Valley Hospital over a 3 month period, where he was diagnosed with terminal liver cancer. He tried chemo therapy, but the cancer was too aggressive and wide-spread.  His hope to survive for 2 years ended at only 2 months.

As a young man, Lum developed a love for hunting, fishing, archery and drag racing.  The hunting, fishing and archery faded over the years, but not his love for racing and he was often seen at Kil-Kare on Saturday nights, racing his S-10 Chevy pick-up truck.

He was born on January 20, 1952 to Arthur E. and A. Elizabeth Burba, who preceded him in death.  He is survived by his wife, Margaret Jo Burba of Bowersville; a son, Samuel of Michigan; brother, Wilbur Entsminger (Jan) of South Charleston, Ohio; brother, Greg Burba (Lisa) of Beavercreek, Ohio and sister, Barb Hughes of Paintersville, Ohio.

Funeral service will be held Thursday May 17, 2018 at 12:00 NOON at Powers-Kell Funeral Home in Jamestown, where friends may call from 11:00 A.M. until the time of the service.  The Rev. R. Michael Helling will officiate. Burial will follow at Woodlawn Cemetery in Bowersville, Ohio.

In Lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate donations, in his name, to Hospice of Dayton, 324 Wilmington Avenue, Dayton, Ohio  45420.
