VIRGINIA BEACH - Donald Henry “DH” Burlage, 89, passed away Jan. 13, 2008, in his residence.

He had been in declining health this past year. He was the husband of Dorothy Virginia and the father of Dean Edwin who predeceased him. DH is survived by four sons, Donald Vincent of Danville, Va., Richard Charles of Virginia Beach, Guy Alan of Bridgewater Corners, Vt., and Denis James of Huntington, N.Y.

He was the son of Aloysius and Cecelia (Schlicte) Burlage formerly of Dubuque, Iowa, and was the second of seven surviving children. He is also survived by three sisters, Alvera Blaser and Alberta Roth of Dubuque, Rita Nichols of Portsmouth; two brothers, LaVerne Charles of Richmond and Paul Ivan of Virginia Beach. A third brother, Gerald James, formerly of Virginia Beach, predeceased him. He was also the grandfather of seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

DH was born on the family farm in New Vienna, Iowa, Sept. 28, 1918. At age 17, he enlisted in the U.S. Navy and served four years. Upon leaving the service, he sold automobiles with Everett H. Lawrence who became his lifelong friend. He returned to the Navy serving two more years during World War II. Later DH owned and operated Norfolk Motor Company at 1216 Granby St., Norfolk. Eventually, DH expanded into the area of automobile finance and casualty, auto, life and health insurance. He acquired the last license from the SCC to operate Norfolk Industrial Loan Association. NILA was the first openly operated business in the area to offer second mortgage loans on residences and being the predecessor of home equity loans.

DH then acquired a loan and a federal license from the Small Business Administration to operate Small Business Investment Corporation of Norfolk. This type of business was part of the advance guard of the Kennedy administration to provide small business loans to disadvantaged small business. He founded Virginia-Florida Capital Corporation to make loans and investments in the states of Virginia and Florida.

During this time, he and his sons owned and operated D.H. Burlage & Co., a family partnership. He served on the Board of Directors of Bank of the Commonwealth, was licensed by the State of Virginia as a securities broker and was an owner of Norfolk Flying Club Inc., which owned and operated a succession of airplanes. DH became a proficient and longtime private pilot.

In the late 1970s, with sons Guy and Denis, he started Waylon Record company and the Times Management corporation. These entities served to advance and promote The Seabird Band worldwide. DH was the driving force in striking a number of foreign licensing agreements in countries such as Japan and Australia, as well as bringing the band to the attention of hundreds of U.S. radio stations, Billboard magazine and major record labels.

His home was always open for practice sessions and all were welcome.

DH, as he was known, will always have a special place in the hearts of many Tidewater musicians.

DH will be long remembered for his integrity and devotion to family and friends. His generosity in creating opportunities for others to succeed in life, was well known.

A funeral will be at H.D. Oliver Funeral Apts, 2002 Laskin Road, Virginia Beach, Friday at 1 p.m. The family will receive visitors at the funeral home Thursday from 7 to 9 p.m. with burial to follow in Forest Lawn cemetery on Granby Street in Norfolk.
