Burton Henry Marinus, 73, of Lititz, PA, passed away on December 7, 2017 at Hamilton Arms, Lancaster, PA. Born in Long Branch, NJ, he was the son of the late Burton Henry Marinus, Sr. and Charlotte Jean (Peck) Marinus. Burt was the loving husband to Helen Ann (Swain) Marinus.
A veteran, he served in the U.S. Army during Vietnam. Burt retired from a long career as a machinist in 2014.
