He was a very personable and customer-focused man. Had quite a drumming career, as well.
Back when I started playing Aquarian heads, probably in the early 2000s (after reading about your positive experiences with them, Bart), I had a question about the heads and emailed Aquarian.  I remember getting a personal email from Mr. Burns himself, with an open invitation to contact him again if I had other questions or problems.
