OBERLIN OH: Robert Edwin Burns of Oberlin, Ohio, died on September 10, 2015 after a long battle with COPD.

A proud Navy Seaman (AETM) and engineer, he spent most of his career with AT&T in North Andover. He was dedicated to restoring his 1811 Andover home and was an avid naturalist, archeologist, and photographer. He is survived by his wife, Marilyn, their daughter and son, and their families.
