Sadly, Vincent Cotton, class of 1979, has passed away. Memorial services for were held today at Morningside Baptist Church in Omaha. Vincent was a tremendous football player at Burke, and an even better friend! Vincent enjoyed keeping up with his Bulldog buddies as you can see from some pics taken at the 2021 Burke Alumni Homecoming Tailgate. Included is also a pic of Vincent and Tim Wurth (class of 1976), another Burke football legend that has sadly passed away as well. πŸ–€πŸ’›
Vincent, and other passed Bulldogs, are memorialized at burkehighalumni.com/deceased-alumni/

This is Bill Patterson, I played football with Vincent (CC) Cotton at Burke HS 1976-1979, he always had a smile on his face and liked to laugh. He was a good man. Another Bulldog gone way to soon. Rest in Peace.

Lila Simmons passed today also-my condolences to all the families

Condolences to the Cotton family. RIP, Vincent.

I’m so sorry. My heart is with his family and friends. This is tough

Great guy! RIP Vincent & Tim!

RIP CC.

Wow. RIP dear man

Again, condolences to the family. Wasn't sure how to post on the main timeline and I could attach a picture, but I wanted to share my unexpected joy at seeing The Black and Gold of The Burke Bulldogs, far away in a Seattle, Washington Potbelly! I love you, Omaha and I miss you. Pray for Washington State, which is going through a very tough time of kids killing kids right now. Peace.
