Huntsville Resident Killed In Early Morning Crash

Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to the family of Bob Burton, a long-time resident of East Huntsville.

Bob was traveling west down Ogden Canyon when he was hit head on by a suicidal driver heading eastbound.

Wouldn't you know that the loser with a death wish comes out unscathed but a great guy ends up dead.

Rob was our across-the-street neighbor when we first moved into the valley. He was the ideal neighbor and had a great sense of humor.

Colleen and family,
From baby sitting early on to coaching your children, I have loved being around such a great person as Rob. He had such a great sense of humor and love for life itself, he will be missed. My heart goes out to all of you.
Love, Lei Lani and Casey Gauchat

We love the Burton family and couldn't ask for better neighbors. Rob is the nicest, funniest guy you could ever meet. We know he is in a wonderful place. Our hearts are broken for Colleen and their children, but their beliefs and their strong family will get them through this somehow. We pray for peace, comfort and strength for them in the coming days.

Doug and Laurel Kirkham and family

If the Green Valley Academy wants to be in our valley they should consider petitioning the School Board to use the site of the former Huntsville Elementary school. It has city water, sewer,and a play ground at the property (suficient to handle the number of residents indicated) as well as some comercial and Churches nearly adjacent.

There are also areas in Liberty that are suited and some of those residents think favorably of the school.

So sorry for this horrible loss my prayers are with the Burton family, and my wish is that people will please drive safer in the Valley, we don't want to lose anymore of our wonderful residents, it is a dangerous road, and I myself have almost been involved in a headon, please drive safer in Ogden Canyon.
