Thorton “Thor” Kelby Burfine,47, of Alvin fought a valiant fight to remain here with his family and friends. He slipped peacefully into the arms of his Savior on the morning of November 2, 2017. Thor was born on April 2, 1970 to Arthur and Flora (Wise) Burfine. He moved from California to Texas in 1986.

He married Brenda Peterson on March 20, 2010 in Seabrook. He had a gentle spirit and touched many lives. His care for others was shown in the ways that he reached out to others in many capacities, one being Texas EquuSearch.
