Bryan Burns (1988-2022) loved baseball and his family


Bryan Robert Burns of Roscoe went to be with God on February 2, 2022 at the age of 33. He was born November 1, 1988 in Indianapolis, Indiana to Randy and Linda Burns.

Bryan was strong, athletic, and extremely competitive. He was an all-around athlete, but one of his true love in life was baseball. Growing up, his traveling team made it to the Little League Regionals, and he played on the Field of Dreams.

After receiving his GED in 2006, he went on to attend school at Rock Valley College where he played baseball. Shortly afterwards, he started a small business. In 2016, Bryan married the love of his life, Jill Burns. Bryan was a devoted father, and his children were his greatest joy. Of all his accomplishments, Bryan’s children were number one and the very center of his heart and soul.

Bryan was one of a kind. His life was not without trouble, but he had a sense of humor that would light up any room, and those closest to him will miss his infectious laugh.

Bryan is survived by his wife Jill; his children; his mother Linda; his father Randy; his brother Brooks (Emily); grandparents, Carroll and Jean; nieces; aunts, Cindy Talley, Lori Allen (Eddie); cousins and half-siblings.

Preceding him in death were his grandparents, Robert and Shirley Talley; and uncles, Rick and Randy Talley.

His family will hold a private memorial in his honor and are asking for thoughts and prayers as they grieve.
