Mr. Steven R. Burns II., age, 37 of Grayson, tragically left this life, Monday morning, August 21, 2017, following a long, hard fought, brave battle with addiction.
He was born October 4, 1979, in Ann Arbor, Michigan, a son of Benita Matthews Burns of Florida, and the late Steven Ross Burns.
Steven was a people person and could make friends wherever he went. He had a tough exterior, but he had a kind gentle heart.
He had many talents, but he was an exceptionally talented chef. He could make the most delicious food from seemingly nothing. When he wasn't in the kitchen, he enjoyed singing and playing music with his Dad and his brother, and more than anything he loved being with his son.
We can't comprehend how or why this happened to someone who had so much to live for and such promise for his life. All we know is our hearts are shattered.
In addition to his father, Steven was preceded in death by one infant son, Benjamin Burns; one nephew, Eli Roseberry; one niece, Charlie Devaney; and all of his grandparents.
In addition to his mother he is survived by one son, Jackson Burns; his stepmother, Diane Burns; two sisters, Amber (David) Roseberry and Kimberlee Burns; one brother, Christopher Burns; the true love of his life, Allison Barker; five nephews, Austin, Colton, Oliver, Lincoln, and Keatin; and six nieces, Cailyn, Brylin, Dylinn, Finnleigh, Katie, and Emily. He also leaves many other family members and friends who will miss him greatly.
A private memorial service is being held at a later date, and all other arrangements were graciously handled by Grayson Funeral Home and Cremation Services in Grayson.
We will miss you terribly, but rest easy that sweet boy of yours will always know who you were and how deeply your love for him ran. We love you, Steven.
