BURNA — David L. Agent, 91, of Burna, passed from this life on Friday, November 20, 2020, at Livingston Hospital and Healthcare Systems in Salem.

Mr. Agent was born in Crittenden County on Aug. 9, 1929, to William M. and Mary Etha (Shahan) Agent. He retired from the Smithland Nursing Home in 1996.
