Steven Ross Burns, 58, husband, father, papaw, brother, and friend made his journey home on Tuesday, Jan. 31, 2017 at the Community Hospice Center in Ashland, surrounded with love.
Steve was born April 11, 1958 in Ann Arbor, Michigan, to the late John Francis (Jack) Burns and Mary Agnes Devee Burns. He was the youngest of four, the only boy, and he always had stories to tell about his sisters.
He attended Milan High School where he enjoyed being a member of the swim team. While he did not graduate from there, he did receive his G.E.D in 1972.
Aside from swimming, Steve enjoyed cooking, playing music, singing, riding his motorcycle, and spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren.
Steve considered himself a jack of all trades, and a master of none, but was a welder by trade for many years before becoming a truck driver.
He married the love of his life, Diane Haut Burns on Aug. 12, 1995, in Monroe, Michigan. Shortly after being married, they, along with their children, started a new chapter in their lives by moving from Michigan to Kentucky, where they made many lasting memories.
In addition to his parents, Steve is preceded in death by two grandsons, Eli Roseberry and Benjamin Burns, and one granddaughter, Charlotte Devaney.
He is survived by his wife of 21 years, Diane; two sons; Steven Burns II, and Christopher Burns; and two daughters; Amber (David) Roseberry and Kimberlee Burns, all of Grayson.
His legacy also lives on within his pride and joys - his grandchildren, Austin Roseberry, Colton Henderson, Cailyn Roseberry, Oliver Glover, Brylin Roseberry, Dylinn Roseberry, Finnleigh Roseberry, Lincoln Devaney, Jackson Burns, Katie Roseberry, Emily Roseberry, and Keatin Roseberry whom he was looking forward to meeting this spring.
He also leaves behind three sisters, Anna Gilbert, Judy Humbarger, and Dorothy Burns, as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends who will miss him deeply.
A private service will be held on Saturday, Feb. 4, 2017 at the Grayson Funeral Home with friends and family officiating.
We will miss you always, Dad.
