Our Daddy, Ralph Emerson Burky Jr.(Sonny), age 66, went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday July 31, 2013. Services will be held Saturday August 10, 10 a.m. from the chapel of Moores Funeral Home in Milledgeville.
Sonny was a native of New Philadelphia, Ohio, but made his home in Putnam County to fulfill his dream of owning a dairy farm. He loved the outdoors, early crisp mornings, and the smell of a freshly mowed hay field. He was preceded in death by his father Ralph Emerson Burky, Sr., Jose & Jovita Sepulveda (mother & father-in-law), and James Franks his favorite son-in-law.
Sonny is survived by his mother Ruby Burky of New Philadelphia, Ohio, his children who loved him very much and were proud of him, they are Ralph Emerson Burky, III (Michelle) of Morgan County, Mary Helen Belcher (Tim) of Louisville, Kentucky, Linda Franks, Emily Lynn McLean (John), and Kimberly Cash (Stephen) all of Eatonton; his siblings, Jeff Burky (Marilyn), Sandy Reed, Phil Burky (Pam), Brian Burky, and Amy Mladek (Matt) all of Ohio and all of the Sepulveda Family that he loved. He also leaves behind his beloved grandchildren, Maria and Helen Belcher, Madison, Victor, and Warren McLean, Arella Cash, and Syerra and Emma Burky all whom he adored and loved.
The family would like to say thanks to Eatonton Health & Rehab for the love and care given to Sonny and all his family during this time of illness.
