David Larry Burleson

April 12, 1951 — August 26, 2023

“For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.” 2 Timothy 4:6-8


David Larry “Bub” Burleson, 72, of Johnson City, Tennessee, went to his Home in Heaven on Saturday, August 26, 2023.


Originally from Bakersville, North Carolina, David was the first born son of the late DH and Lucille Woody Burleson. He was a longtime member at Grace Free Will Baptist Church.


David was a lifelong and respected electrician, and co-owner of Burleson Electric Company for over 40 years. He was a charter member of the Contractor Review Board for the City of Johnson City. He was an influential mentor to many professionals in the electrical field, and his contributions are an integral part of the regions infrastructure.


David loved spending time with his family, and his grandchildren were the light of his life. He will be greatly missed.


In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by three siblings, Beth Burleson, Don Burleson, and Terry Burleson.

Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Missi (Sam) Crowder, Jennifer Burleson, and Logan (Britney) Burleson; grandchildren, Callie Elizabeth Burleson, David Henley Burleson, Roan Thomas Burleson, and Laurel Grace Burleson; brother, Mike (Brenda) Burleson; god-daughter, Kelly Burleson Weems; sisters in law, Melissa Burleson and Lisa Burleson; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, and neighbors.


David’s family will receive friends from 5:00-7:00 pm on Thursday, August 31, 2023, at Grace Free Will Baptist Church (2110 Knob Creek Road, Johnson City). A Celebration of Life will follow, at 7:00 pm, under the direction of Pastor Curtis Hurt and Pastor Dave Foster. A committal service will commence at 10:00 am the next day, Friday, September 1, at Monte Vista Memorial Park, under the direction of Bro. Brian Hollaway. Please meet at Morris-Baker Funeral Home by 9:45 am to go in procession to the cemetery.
