Jack Conner Burdett, II, 74, passed away peacefully at Hospice-Care at CAMC Memorial on May 5, 2021 with his children by his side.

He was preceded in death by: his loving wife, Pamela Ann (Gardner-Coburn) Burdett; his parents, former WV Secretary of State Joe Floyd Burdett and Virginia (Shonk) Burdett; his twin brother, Joe Floyd Burdett, III; and his sister Beverly (Burdett) Cartwright.

He enjoyed spending time and traveling with his beloved wife, his children, and grandchildren. He loved the game of golf, playing poker with a group of life-long friends, and riding his boat down the Kanawha River. He was quite the entertainer and enjoyed a good party, especially his elaborate New Year’s Eve celebrations.

Jack graduated from Charleston High School in 1965 and Marshall University in 1969 with a B.A. He had a 35 year career with BP, where he retired as the Senior Vice-President of Marketing.

He is survived by his first wife Mary Rebecca (Coughenour) Malone, children, Beth (Michael) Weber, Kristin (Rodney) Elkins, Melissa Coburn, Jeffrey (Lilian) Burdett, Meredith Burdett, and Mark Burdett. He is also survived by: his grandchildren, Lauren (Adrian) Fisch, Andrew Maston and Kaley Burdett; sisters-in-law, Deborah Burdett, Betsy Gardner, Janis Gardner; and brother-in-law, Joel Gardner and Bob Cartwright.

    So sad to hear about the passing of one of my favorite bosses at BP. Jack was very good to me and because of him, I was able to experience opportunities and places I normally woudn’t have. We talked about 3 times a year to catch up and he told me he was confined to a wheelchair last time we talked. His soul and body are healed now and he’s in heaven playing golf and giving lots of hugs to his wife, Pam, and his other family members. Rest in Heaven, my friend. My condolences to the Burdett family.
