Dr. Burgess is fondly remembered by my family and myself as our kind-hearted, God-fearing, faithful, talented dentist. His untimely passing saddens us, but we know he with our Lord. Our deepest sympathies to the loved ones he went ahead of. May God comfort you during this time.

From: Richard Joseph
Relation: Dr. Burgess was my family dentist

My wife Pam and I would like to send our condolence to the family of Dr. Burgess. He was a gifted dentist who ensured the health of our teeth. But more than that, he imparted health to our hearts and soul with his warm smile and kind words. Although he did not enjoy length of days and left us much too soon, his legacy of love, care and service will live on in many ways. We will not be the recipient of his unmatched dental service anymore. However, we like so many others, will always have the memory of a truly caring person who was the epitome of grace, compassion and love. The Lord has lent him to us for a short time. He is now in eternal peace but somehow still caring for us with all the good he left behind.

We were so saddened to hear of John’s passing. Just this past summer I was subjected to his quips and jokes while upside with my mouth wide open.. helpless to respond ~ just the way he planned it! John was our family dentist for over 24 years, the only dentist my kids have known. His love for family, for life, his coworkers and his patients was evident. Our condolences ~ he was so very special.

Many thoughts for John’s family and wife, Lynn. So sorry to have heard of this sad news. A man so devoted to his family and practice. May you all have comfort and peace. Keep you face to the sunshine Lynn. These are the wise words that I still carry from your advise to me so many years ago. Peace and love to you.

From: Michael Berger
Relation: Childhood friend & patient

I was so very fortunate to have John as a close friend in our younger years, & even more lucky to be under his care as a patient for as many years as I can recall. His passion for all his undertakings will always stay with me, & no doubt will be remembered by everyone else that knows him. He will truly be missed, but his legacy will continue as his spirit resides over everyone that took comfort in his friendship.

From: Joan Holland
Relation: Relationship - How did you know the deceased?

It was so sad to hear about John’s passing…..may he rest in peace. He was our family dentist since we moved to South Surrey 30 years ago and a while back we introduced him to Mark as well. His utmost professionalism and especially his humor and wit will be truly missed. Our condolences to Lynn, Trevor, Jordon and Julia and the “family” at Semiahmoo Dental. Sincerely, Christopher Bray, Joan & Matk Holland

From: Howie Jones & family
Relation: Friend

Praying you would all know the Lord’s gracious strength and enabling during this time of great grief. That your dad, husband and son is the Lord’s, is a wonderful and amazing reality. Psalm 139, 1 Thessalonians 4: 13-18, 1 Corinthians 15, and Revelation 21:1-7 are certainties; think much on these things. “Jesus said unto her, I am the resurrection, and the life: he that believeth in me, though he were dead, yet shall he live” (John 11:25). This was/is John’s testimony; his faith is now, most assuredly, a glorious sight.

From: Bill K.
Relation: patient

As his the Good Doctors patient, he always looked to see what was in my best interest before solution.
As a comforter, he always met his oaths, personal and professional.
As a Man, He was well chosen for all his works.
As a Spirit, he will be accepted simply on earthly reputation and merits.
As a Person, one to set a mark by.
As one who share in that dreaded unavoidable pool of misery I hope to meet the Good Doctor in our next chapter. That way, at least I’ll know I’m in the right place!
May your Beliefs serve you Sir, as you seved them, God Bless. Bill K.
