Dave Burgess – In Memoriam 1958-2023

A bit of sad news…

Original Rossmoor Family resident, Dave Burgess has passed away.
Dave understood our community. He attended Rush Elementary, Oak Junior High School, Los Alamitos High School, and Long Beach State University, graduating with a degree in Finance. He was also a California-licensed General Contractor.
Besides his Contracting business, many knew him through his service to Rossmoor, being elected to the Rossmoor Community Services District board of directors in the 2014 elections. Dave was a people’s choice candidate, particularly focused on representing fiscal accountability and public transparency in all he did. As such, he felt strongly about taking the district’s operations FOR the people TO the people, despite the risk of stirring controversies. Not surprisingly, he was the top vote-getter of four candidates, for the two open positions  (beating out both new and incumbent candidates.)
Our heartfelt sympathies go out to Dave’s mother, Barbara Burgess, the entire Burgess family, along with Dave’s friends, neighbors, and colleagues.

    1. Rest In peace my good friend Dave. I’ve known you since junior high school. We had so much fun riding dirt bikes back in the day. You were always an inspiration to me to race motocross as best I could. I will miss you until we meet again in Heaven. Your good friend, Tom Escalante.
