J. Pat Burleson Celebration of Life

James Pat Burleson was born on April 27, 1936 and passed away on October 31, 2021.

His biggest goal in life was to become more like his Savior Jesus Christ. Seeing all as Jesus sees all, becoming the best version of himself, Pat walked as a true role model for hundreds of thousands of people as a Christian man in Texas and around the world of martial arts. 

Pat is survived by his wife, Anna Jerez Burleson, his children, Terry Burleson, Shelia Burleson, Tasha Estrada, Robert Chance Burleson, Matthew Luis Killen, Luke Richard Killen, Chad Lawrence Killen, twelve grandchildren, three great grandchildren, and all who he has been blessed with to know throughout his lifetime.
