He was an eighth grade student at Norview Middle School in Norfolk, Virginia. He played football for the Norview Navigators.

Amir was so fun loving and was big on love and loyalty. He brightened any room he walked into. He loved spending time with his mom, dad and baby sister who act like she was his big sister.

Amir Burnett, at the age of 14 years, unexpectedly transitioned into eternal life on Sunday, September 3, 2023 at Sentara Leigh Hospital in Norfolk, Virginia.

He was preceded in death by his maternal great grandmother, Marie Eaton and his maternal great great grandmother, Marie McGuffin.

Amir’s loving personality and the bright light he was in everyone’s life will be missed but forever with us in our hearts.
