Alpine Tabernacle filled for missionary funeral

AMERICAN FORK, Utah — Funeral services were Monday, Feb. 8, for a Highland, Utah, man who died while serving a mission

for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The Alpine Tabernacle in American Fork, Utah, was filled to capacity as the services were held for Elder McKay Choy Burrows, who died while serving a mission in Romania.

Family members and many friends of Burrows, who had served

as a missionary in the Romania Bucharest Mission, gathered Monday

afternoon for the 90-minute service.

The 20-year-old LDS missionary, along with his companion, Elder

Jace Davis, both succumbed from accidental asphyxiation on Jan. 29. It

was caused by a leak of natural gas inside their apartment in Romania.
