Joseph Michael Burge, 49, of Cottonwood, formerly of Lexington, IL passed away at Southeast Health on Saturday, November 30, 2019.

A memorial service will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, December 7, 2019 at Calvary Baptist Church in Cottonwood with Reverend Richard Smith officiating and Glover Funeral Home of Dothan, Alabama directing.

In lieu of flowers the family request donations be made to St. Judes Children’s Hospital, American Diabetes Association or a charity of the donor’s choice in honor of Joe.

Joe was born on July 12, 1970 in Sarasota, FL. His family moved to Lexington, IL in 1978 where they made their home. Joe was a 1989 Lexington High School graduate where he found his passion for cooking in Mrs. Gill’s home economics class. He went on to be the main cook at Main Street Pizza till he and his family followed his dad to Florida in 1995. He then moved to Alabama to be with his new wife, Marsha. Joe pursued many careers but nothing made him happier than manning a grill.

He is survived by his wife of eleven years, Marsha Dutton Burge, Cottonwood, AL; his sister, Debbie (Steve) Johnson, IL; 2 step-sons Curtis (Candace) Garvin, FL, Trahern (Angel Birge) Eggen, FL, 2 step-daughters Elaine (Pete) Parkinson, Ohio, Brittany Dollar Burge, Cottonwood, AL; his mother-in-law Ruby Dutton, Cottonwood, AL; sister-in-law Donna (Gene “Rhino”) Coleman; many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews and grandchildren.

There are not to many memories of growing up that don’t have you in them. From riding our bikes, building snow forts, fun filled summer nights, learning to drive, and then moving on and raising our own families. Even though life took us in different directions I could always reach out to you and no matter how long it had been we just started right where we left off. I am sitting here wishing I could hear your laugh one more time Or some crazy story of yours. I know you will have my back. Give your mom, dad and grandma big hugs from me. Love you forever cuz

I grew up with Joe ...I have tons of wonderful memories! The best ones that come to mind were playing cards on New Year’s Eve & listening to the top 100 countdown hits for the year 1984..or it may have been 1985. Talking about “world events” in Mrs. Nielsen’s math class, and Joe experimenting with recipes in Mrs. Gill’s Foods class. What I remember most about Joe is that he had a boisterous personality and he loved to laugh.
Rest In Peace Joe, and tell your folks I said “hello”. 😊
