Friend of the NPF loses battle to Cancer

After a short fight against an aggressive melanoma, Chris’s life ended peacefully at home early Tuesday morning (2/15).
Chris loved his family, friends, girls softball & his music.  A Memorial Service for Chris Burke will be held at 4 pm, Saturday, Feb 26th at Parkcrest Church, Heartwell Campus, 3936 Woodruff Ave, Long Beach. Friends are invited to visit with his family at their home afterward. Tribute donations in Chris’ memory can be made to MusicCares at Grammy.Org.
Vice President of Development, Gaye Lynn Wilson had this to say about Chris "I am saddened by the loss of Chris Burke. Most of you would know him as the owner of Chris’s Bucket Seats. I really enjoyed sharing softball ideas with him over the years. He was a tremendous supporter of girls softball and just became a proud supporter of the National Pro Fastpitch League. He sponsored several events at the NPF Championship Series in 2010 and was looking forward to helping us grow. He will be greatly missed and our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. You will be missed!"
