Hi I'm Burnie

I am a husband, father and a firefighter. I am a 6th generation Texan and I'm a Mormon.

About Me

I was born and raised in Texas. I have been married for 21 years and have 3 children. I am a firefighter and paramedic and have worked for the San Antonio Fire Department for almost 22 years. I enjoy the outdoors, either playing golf or cycling in the Texas Hill Country. My favorite activity is spending time with my family or watching my kids participate in sports.

Why I am a Mormon

My wife was Mormon when we married. I was going to another church at the time but had really never put too much thought into my religion. After our daughter was born I began to investigate the church. Through personal prayer I received the answer that I too should become a Mormon. I have never regretted my decision to join the church. I love my life and feel very blessed.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by being honest with myself and all those who I meet. I am active in my community with the Boyscouts, 4-H, and was a volunteer firefighter for 16 years. Helping other people gives me great satisfaction.
