James Taylor Burtis, Sr. "Jim", age 82, died peacefully at his home on Sunday, March 24, 2019. Born in Eastport to the late William Henry and Lillie Taylor Leatherbury Burtis, Jim was raised in the Annapolis area. He was employed by C&P Telephone Co., now Verizon, for many years. As an avid hunter, Jim also enjoyed fishing and crabbing, which inspired his talent for wildfowl and decoy carving. He is survived by his wife of 62 years, Norma Jean Burtis; his son, James Taylor Burtis, Jr. and his grandson, James Taylor Burtis, III. Funeral services will be private. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made to the Hospice of the Chesapeake, 90 Ritchie Hwy., Pasadena, MD 21122. Condolences may be made by clicking the Memory Wall link on this page.

My wife and I had the honor and pleasure of getting to know this very humble gentleman at the Annapolis decoy show a few years ago. I was invited to his home where he allowed me to purchase some of his miniature duck and fish carvings. I was very saddened by the news of his passing. Our deepest Condolences to his family. Harry and Cheryl Morrison.

May you have joy in the memories of your loved one. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4) The
Bible gives real hope of being reunited again with your loved one. It promises
that your loved one will soon come back to life in the resurrection to a beautiful,
peaceful paradise on the earth. (John 5:28, 29)
