Lucky Dwayne Burruss, Sr., 80, passed away on Monday, June 26, 2023. Born on April 23, 1943, he was the son of the late Lloyd and Elsie Burruss.
Lucky served his country with honor and valor during the Vietnam War as a proud member of the United States Army. His service to his country was a testament to his selflessness and his willingness to protect and defend the values he held dear.
After his honorable discharge from the military, Lucky embarked on a long and fruitful career at Hercules, Inc. for over 40 years. His remarkable work ethic, expertise, and leadership qualities led him to rise through the ranks, eventually retiring as a respected supervisor. Lucky's contributions to the company were immeasurable, and his colleagues regarded him as a true professional and mentor.
Beyond his professional accomplishments, Lucky possessed an unmatched talent as a handyman and craftsman. His exceptional skills allowed him to fix anything that crossed his path, becoming the go-to person for family and friends. He was a master of his craft, transforming raw materials into works of art. Lucky's true passion lay in building dollhouses, a hobby he shared with his beloved wife. Together, they created miniature worlds filled with intricate details, capturing the hearts of many with their creativity and precision.
Outside of work and craftsmanship, Lucky's greatest joy was his family. He is survived by his beloved wife, Linda Williamson Burruss; children, Grover Stell (Vivian), Jeffrey Burruss (Ginger Ferguson), Lucky Burruss, Jr., Paul Meyer; grandchildren, Joey Burruss, Bobby Burruss, Tuesday Coughlin, Stevie Williams, June Tart, Nate Burruss, Gage Burruss; great-grandchildren, Adam Tart, William Tart, Josh Hendrick, Aiden Burruss, Loralie Burruss; brother, Dwight Burruss (Linda); beloved four-legged companion, Lucy; and other extended family members and friends.
