Robert Bursalyan was 29 years old, just short of his 30th birthday this month. Sadly, Robert’s life was cut short on March 13, 2013 when he was struck by a vehicle on Van Nuys Boulevard as he was trying to get into his car. The Los Angeles Police Department Valley Traffic Division did not determine the actual speed however; the driver had to have been going well above the 35 mph posted speed limit for Robert’s body to fly in the air, hit a tree, land on a parked car, and roll off onto the sidewalk. Robert’s dreams of becoming an accomplished actor left unfulfilled.
