Robert Edward “Haggar” Burns

Bob “Haggar” Burns, 65, passed away at his home after a courageous battle with cancer surrounded by his family.

He is survived by his brothers Bill and Jack Burns and sister Kathy Martin. He will be missed by his mother-in-law Cookie and father-in-law Bucky Higgins, all of his sister-in-laws and brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews. He will be missed as well by his wife’s enormous, extended family.

Haggar was born and raised in Mount Pleasant, PA and bled black and gold.

Together, he and Cherylyn loved to travel, spend time with the “girlies” and friends at the shore house, drink Coors Lites and apple-tinis, watch their favorite TV shows and just simply laugh.

Haggar spent forty plus years working in the nuclear industry. He was a successful business man with an excellent work ethic, and many co-workers who were true friends,
