Death of Perc Burrows

Shirley and Perc Burrows

On March 25, we reported on GCI-Canada elder Perc Burrows’ struggle with severe health problems. About six weeks ago he entered the hospital, and several days ago his body began to shut down. Early this week, he died peacefully from pneumonia.

Perc and his wife Shirley were pillars in GCI’s Toronto-area congregations. For several decades they were fondly known as genuine servant-leaders. Perc will be greatly missed.

Please join us in offering condolences to Shirley and the whole family.

  1. Our deepest condolences. Perc was well loved and will be greatly missed. May God give peace and comfort at this time.

  2. With the passing of Perc, a pillar in GCI Canada has fallen. He truly was so well-know and loved. His humor and joyful spirit made spending time with him a joy. Our love to Shirley and their family members.

  3. I remember so vividly meeting Shirley and Perc while on one of the old baptizing tours across Canada in 1959. Those were early days and there were perhaps 8-10 members of the Church in Toronto. Shirley and Perc rapidly became pillars in the little group and continued to serve faithfullly over the years. Shirley, you and Perc have a special place in the heart of this Canadian. My prayers are with you and the family.

  4. We are so sorry to hear of your loss, and our prayers go out to you and your family. May God, through our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, keep you and your family snuggled in His all loving arms during this time – and always.

  5. Our deepest condolences to the Burrows family. Mr. Burrows was the first minister that met me and invited me to the congregation. He also baptized me along with another minister in his home in the early 80’s. He & his wife were, and still are an inspiration to us, and we look forward to seeing him again!

    With much love in Jesus name.

  6. Jannice and I send our sincere condolences to the Burrows family. We had the privilege of having dinner with the Burrows’ while in Canada some years ago.

  7. May the GOD of all comfort, show HIMSELF mighty now in comforting the family. Our prayers are with you all.

  8. Dear Shirley,

    Sorry to read of the news of Perc. As I mentioned before, I still have good memories of you both on Sabbatical 1977-1978. A very fine couple who I appreciated getting to know during that time.
    I pray God will help, encourage and up lift you at this time as you look forward to being together again in the future.
    Love and prayers,
