Robert J. Burcham

November 4, 1967 ~ July 27, 2019 (age 51)


It is with a broken heart we announce that on July 27, 2019 our beloved son, brother, and uncle, Bobby, 51, went home to be with his Lord.  Bobby was a 1986 graduate of Ellet High School.  He was a gentle soul and his love of family, fishing and the Cleveland Browns brought him happiness and peace.  He was our shining light and hero, never to be forgotten and always loved.

He is survived by his mother, Jolene (Ron) Dannemiller; sisters, Krista Burcham and Tracie (Dale) Soptelean; niece and nephews, Shelby Burcham, Logan and Luke Soptelean; great nieces and nephew, Aliyah, Aislyn and Lincoln; grandma, Barb Sitosky; brother, Theron Dannemiller; Nannie, Beverly Dannemiller; as well as many other family and friends. He was preceded in death by his son, Bobby; grandpa, Joe Sitosky; and father, Robert Burcham.  

Special blessings to Dr. Petrus for his compassion. 

Family and friends may call from 4 P.M. until the service at 7 P.M. on Thursday, August 1, 2019 at Schermesser Funeral Home, 600 E. Turkeyfoot Lake Rd. (SR619), Akron, Ohio 44319.  Interment will take place on Friday at 11 A.M. at East Liberty Cemetery.  In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the family in c/o Schermesser Funeral Home.  To leave a special message online for the family, visit our website at
