Burgess; Glenn V., age 63 of Hunts Point, Queens County, passed away peacefully on Wednesday, October 12, 2022, in Queens General Hospital, Liverpool, surrounded by his loving family.
Born in Liverpool, Glenn was a son of the late Gerald and Fallie (Fisher) Burgess.
Glenn grew up in Southwest Port Mouton. Upon completing his Red Seal as a machinist, Glenn began his career at Bowater Mersey, where he also earned his 2nd Class Power Engineering Certificate.
