Charles Brian Bourke

Charles Brian Bourke, 34, passed away Monday, January 9, 2023, at his home in Green River, Wyoming.

He was born June 17, 1988, in Granada Hills, CA, the son of Michael and Jessie Bourke.

Charles worked as a shuttle car operator for Genesis Alkali.

He was a member of the Local United Steelworkers Union.

Charlie was a very special soul who, like his brothers, learned to survive at an early age. He enlisted in the US Army as soon as he was old enough. Charlie was very proud of his military service and his country. He loved his fiancé Daney and enjoyed his role as Lorenzo's stepfather and male mentor. He cherished his time living in Montana, Idaho, and Wyoming, and took full advantage of fly-fishing, hunting escapes, and playing golf. Spending time with Daney and Lorenzo was of utmost importance. He found enjoyment in smoking meat and cooking for everyone around. Charlie was a cherished son, brother, nephew, uncle, dad, and significant other who will be forever missed by those who loved him.

Survivors include his fiancé Daney Stephenson of Green River, WY; parents Michael and Jessie Bourke of Broomfield, CO; sons Jesse Dee Bourke of Bagdad, AZ, Lorenzo Boahen of Green River, WY; brothers Brandon McClure of MT, Kyle McClure of MT; sister Allison Bourke of Denver, CO; nephews Kurik McClure, Tynan McClure, Ronan McClure; several aunts, uncles, and cousins.

He is preceded in death by his birth mother Sherri Pleis and brother Tracy Anthony Bourke.

Cremation has taken place and private family services held at a later date.
