Memories Timeline


  1. Pete and I met at work at the US Postal Service and I considered him a good friend. He had a special sense of humor and unique insight of our world. I will miss the lunch outings and many conversations we shared. Pete and his family are in my thoughts and prayers.

  2. I worked with Peter in DC, and was at the farm on the river a few times. Pete is a character right out of a book. May your pages keep turning. Watch over all of us Peter. My prayers are with all of his family and friends. Peter you will be missed but not forgotten.

  3. I had the pleasure of meeting Pete while working at USPS Headquarters for a few years. I’ll remember him fondly. Not only was he a great guy to work with, but a good conversationalist who would always spread humor and good cheer. We’ll miss you, Pete. Rest in peace my friend.

  4. We do not often have an opportunity to witness and know a friend like Pete. He was a kind and decent human who worked hard, and showed respect and mercy on all. I knew him as a solid friend, and noble person. He will be missed. Repectfully, Ronald Garey & Family

  6. Pete was a great guy who never lacked for a sense of humor. He was a hard worker and one you could always count on for help. He never let his physical limitations get in the way of doing whatever needed to be done while on the job. I’ll miss his humor, good natured ribbing and most of all his honest approach to life. Pete, may you rest in peace.

  7. Pete had more than his share of trials in his life but never gave in to anything. It was an honor to call him “cousin.” May he finally have the peace and contentment that he so deserves. The family will never get over this, but we pray God gives them strength to get through it. Zoe se logos.

  13. Dear Bursenos Family, I had to write and tell you how sorry I am for your loss. There are never the right words to express how deeply sad I am that you have to endure your loss. Pete (aka Bad Boy) will be truly missed by everyone who knew him no matter where they crossed his path in life. Pete was a giver, never a taker. He was always there to help no matter how busy he was; no matter the time of day; and, never asking or needing anything in return. Friends like Pete are few in life and it is with a heavy heart that I also grieve with your loss. His friendship meant the world to me, and I couldn’t have asked for a more genuine friend than Pete. Memories of our times together (during breaks) will be forever held dear to me. His funny humor and jokes will continue to keep me laughing. May your memories of Pete bring you comfort in the days ahead. Please know that your loss is also my loss, and I am here, at any time, to help you in any way I can. Sincerely,

  14. Dear Bursenos family, Christine and I would like to express our sincere sympathy for the loss of your beloved Peter. He may have departed from this world but he has left so many wonderful memories for you. Thus, you will be content to know that you were glad to have him share his life with you while he was among us. May God bless his soul, Demetrios and Christine Stavrakas

  15. Dear Bursenos Family. We are so deeply shocked to hear of Pete’s passing. He was both our sons, Chris and Tony Selb) baseball and football coach when they were young boys in Herndon Va. He was such a gift to our son’s! His love of sports and his knowledge of the game was super! But most of all was his love for his “guys” on his team and his dedication to helping them be the very best they could be – as a teammate and most of all as a person. We as parents loved him and his family. I can still see him pulling up to my house to pick up our guys in his motorcycle with his sidecar. He was so full of life and such a great guy. Our prayers go out to you and your whole family. Pete leaves a void never to be replaced. God Bless you all! The Selb Family John, Linda, Chris and Tony Selb Rehoboth Beach De., Ashburn Va. and Leesburg Va.

  16. Dear Bursenos Family, I am sorry for your loss. I worked with Pete directly for a year and indirectly for many more. I am not sure that I truly comprehend this new permanence because I can still hear him tell me “Talk to the hand” as he whizzed by me. As you move into this new reality, I hope that wonderful memories flood your mind and heart. And in reliving those great moments, you find peace.

  17. To the Bursenos I worked with Pete for many years on many projects and have lots of fond and humourous memories. May he rest in peace! May you be blessed with his memory as it remains in your heart and mind. He was quite the character and a very unforgettable person that brightened a lot of lives with his jokes and humor.

  18. I was privileged to know Peter as a customer when I was a young technologist. His plainspoken guidance shaped us up and helped us succeed. We looked so forward to his visits to our office, and we all tell each other the story of the time one of us FedEx’d a proposal to him. I’ve missed Peter for years, and now we all shall. With sympathy to his family, Peter Preksto

  19. The Bursenos family thanks everyone for their suppport and deep sympathies. As we all know, Peter had so much inner strength, and he was such a giving person to all he surrounded. Now, he has lifted the ban on stem cell research, with hope that anyone who is not, or who will be so unfortunate to lose their ability to walk, will someday regain that ability. And, we know his soul will keep us together and strong. We lost a very special person who will always be remembered for his humor, his nonstop giving, and his unconditional love. Again, we thank all of you for your condolences and great support. May God be with you all!

  20. For the longest time I really thought Pete’s name was “Buns”…that’s what Chickie called him..never heard him called Pete. Just Buns and Dad. He was my best friends dad and he became a second father to me. I met Alexis in first grade and we were up to no good from the beginning. I remember thinking that he reminded me of the “FONZ” from Happy Days because everyone loved to be around him and he was as cool as the Fonz. (and he had a black leather jacket and rode a motorcycle too) He coached Demi’s football teams…and allowed us girls to follow along and pretend we were cheerleaders ! I remember his humor and how he lit up and had such pride when he saw his own children. I went on family vacations many summers with the Bursenos Family to Ocean City. Pete was such a fun and giving person and he will be missed. I hope the memories of his great life bring a smile to your face. Love, Laura Reineck Lee
