Bills first PR director passes

Posted by Chris Brown on January 16, 2015 – 10:31 am

He was the first Public Relations Director of the Buffalo Bills franchise. From 1960-63 Chuck Burr served as the go between with the Buffalo media for the Bills before being promoted to assistant general manager in the mid-60’s. Burr passed away earlier this week in Getzville after a short illness.

Burr, a WWII veteran who earned a Bronze Star, was the Sports Information Director at UB before landing the PR job with the Bills in 1960. Later in his career he also served in the same capacity with the Buffalo Sabres.

The Buffalo Bills pass along their condolences to the Burr family. Burr was 91.
