On Wednesday, July 22, 2020 our beloved Burley J. Manor Jr. passed away. He had been battling several health issues over the past 5 months and was on his way to recovery. Unfortunately he succumbed to complications from Covid-19.
Burley was known in the Austin Music scene and considered by many as an Austin Legend. He was the bass player for a number of bands around the Austin Area. He also played the bass guitar for St. Luke Missionary Baptist Church. Burley was loved by many and will be deeply missed.
The family is asking for assistance during this time to cover the cost of burial expenses. Anything that you can give will be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your support.

My deepest condolences goes out to Burley’s wife, family and all his friends. Burley will be greatly missed but not forgotten. I was so blessed to have known him through Soulman Sam and his Band. Also, I was able to have captured some great moments at the Skylark Lounge through my lens. Rest In Peace Mr. Burley, my friend. 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼 Thanks for the great memories.
