Raymond "Gabby" Burkhardt, 74, of Export, died Saturday, Nov. 9, 2013, following a brief illness.
He was born Nov. 21, 1938, in Pittsburgh, a son of the late Francis and Grace (Kelly) Burkhardt.
Gabby was the epitome of life itself. He knew how to live and how to love. He was always busy with one of his projects or helping someone else. He loved to share his magic and delighted in the wonderment of it all. He made us all believe. His numerous stories and jokes could always light up a room. He would look forward to winter and the first snowfall so he could go snowmobiling.
