Mark L. Burnham, 68, of Vernon, passed away peacefully surrounded by loved ones on Thursday, June 11, 2020. Mark was born November 17, 1951 in Manchester. He was the son of the late Elmore Goodwin Burnham and Marion Birdsey (Keeney) Burnham. Mark was raised in South Windsor in the home his father built and grew up an avid fan of all sports.
