Happy and his partner Ron Dagani

John Burlison
4 Mar 1951 - 18 Mar 2020
Chesapeake Squares
Attended GCA Caller School in 2008

From Happy's partner Ron Dagani:
Happy had been sleeping comfortably around the clock for the past three days. His hospice nurse came to check on him this afternoon. About six hours later, while I was at his side in the bedroom, he took his last breath.
I posted the following on Facebook tonight:

JOHN STUART BURLISON March 4, 1951 – March 18, 2020 My sweet, gentle angel got his wings Wednesday evening. I’m sure he will be bringing joy and happiness to the next world just as he brought to mine. Rest in peace, Happy! I will love you always.

We are planning a celebration of his life, but due to the coronavirus outbreak, it's unclear right now when we will be able to hold it. Stay tuned.

From Chesapeake Squares:

Dear Friends,

A sad note. Many of you will remember John ("Happy", "Happy Doodle") Burlison from his many years of square dancing in the Washington/Baltimore region. He always brought a sense of fun and joie de vivre to dancing with an extra added a la mode scoop of silliness on the side. His smile was contagious and his spirit radiant. His tenderness as a human being he offered to us unsparingly. We will miss you, old buddy.

Deepest condolences to Ron and all who had the privilege to know Happy.

From all of us at Chesapeake Squares.
