BURKE, Stanley 

Stanley Louis BurkeIt is with great sadness that we say goodbye to Stanley Louis Burke who passed away May 28 at age 93, after living an extraordinary and happy life. An original thinker with a passion for adventure, Stan was a genuine newsman who always sought the truth behind a story. Loving and kind, he will be greatly missed by his family: wife Peggie Coulter Burke of Amherst Island, Ontario; his children Brian, Kerry, Holly and Randy Burke of Vancouver, British Columbia; step-children Diana Coulter, Carolyn Coulter and Sheila MacNicol; as well as 13 grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and his former wife Daphne Burke.

Born in Vancouver, Stan was a proud graduate of the Little Flower Academy, St. George’s School, and the University of British Columbia. During the Second World War at age 21, he was one of the youngest Canadian naval captains. Later, he became a CBC newsman, foreign correspondent and anchor of The National News. Throughout his career, he contributed to many important international stories such as the construction of the Berlin Wall, meetings at the United Nations with Nikita Khrushchev, former premier of the Soviet Union, and the ground-breaking environmental documentary, The Air of Death.

He did relief work during the Biafra civil war, and was on the original board of advisors for Pollution Probe. He authored a series of satirical fables, was owner and publisher of the Nanaimo Times, helped start the float house community on Granville Island, and was always an eager partner in pranks with brother Cornelius, in businesses like Bogus Enterprises, “dark and difficult deeds done, lips sealed, pigeons holed…”

In his latter years, he worked on a book inspired by Marshall McLuhan’s theory of communications. A celebration of Stan’s life will be held Wednesday, June 1, 2016., 2 pm at St. Paul’s Presbyterian Church, Amherst Island. As Stan always signed off: “And that’s the news.” Donations welcome to The Alzheimers Society or World Wildlife Fund.
