James Shaw Burns (Jim)
Peacefully at his home on 26th February 2023 Jim aged 91 years of Rishton and formerly of Millom. The devoted and much loved husband of Eve, loving dad and step-dad to Jimmy, Mark, Roy, John and Peter and a cherished grandad.
Jim was born and raised in Millom and later made the move to Rishton following meeting his beloved wife Eve. He spent his working life as a scientific officer in atomic energy working at Sellafield and later at the former Springfield plant. Jim loved his work and with his hard working ethos Jim was always a well respected member of his team, making many friends along the way. Jim always kept himself busy and he loved to tinker with his car and always looked forward to attending the football to watch his beloved Rovers and he enjoyed snooker and darts from the comfort of his own home. Holidays were always looked forward to and many happy times have been shared with his wife Eve in Greece and Egypt enjoying the local culture and sampling the local cuisine. Jim was the most proud dad, stepdad and grandad who loved nothing more than catching up with his nearest and dearest.
