Robert J. "Bob" Burns

Funeral Director & Manager

With over 27 years of experience, Bob was promoted to manager in February 2018, and remains committed to bringing knowledge, compassion and empathy to all the families he helps. He has been a resident of New Bern since May 2000, and considers it "home". You can usually see him downtown, or hiking at one of the great parks in the area. He was taught early on, and reinforced by Tommy Best, that "Families come first" is the best practice. He stays abreast of the latest trends, whether Celebrations of Life ceremonies, green burials, or personalization. In his spare time, Bob and his better half enjoy kayaking, the beach, and fixing up their Craftsman home.
