He is survived by his wife, Genevieve “Jenny” Burchfield of Alvin, TX. Daughter, Melissa Hughes of Fort Worth, TX, sons: Patrick Burchfield of Edgewater, CO., Edwin Wade Burchfield and wife Mandy Burchfield of Grand Prairie, TX, and Kyle Burchfield of Alvin, TX. Sister Cynthia and husband John Hall, brothers: Larry Burchfield and wife Carolyn, Chester Burchfield and wife Kimberly, Vincent Burchfield and wife Tiffanie, all of Natchez, MS and numerous nieces, nephews, and grandkids.

He was a very hard-working person, he worked at a job he loved and was blessed to work with some great people. He retired to do the things he loved to do: travel, fish, hunt, camp and anything to do with outdoors. He loved Mountain Dew, sweet tea (his wife’s most of all). All his snacks he shared with his best bud, Tyson (dog). He loved animals and most of all he loved his family and friends. He would help anyone if he could, and give the shirt off his back if you needed it.

He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
