I just found this obituary, and info for a service being held tomorrow, April 2nd. Buzzy was a really nice guy and the best amp tech I ever dealt with. BL

BURAK, John
- We are deeply saddened by the sudden loss of our very dear brother John "Buzzy" Burak, who passed peacefully early March 14, 2017.

Forever loved by family, friends, neighbours of the Rouge and members of the music community, all to whom he selflessly devoted his life. Dearly missed by sister Karen, brother Gary, niece Vanessa, Craig and extended family.

Buzzy left an honorable legacy of keeping music alive in Canada through his business Sound FX. His experience and expertise is recognized widely. Humble and kind, he cared for wildlife in the Rouge.

He loved and was loved by so many. Pine Hills Cemetery, April 2nd Visitation 1 p.m. Service 2 p.m. Home Reception.

Memorial in his honour TBA.
