Obituary of Brian Francis Burns

Brian Francis Burns of Red Deer, Alberta, passed away at his home on September 19th, 2023, at the age of 61 years.

Brian was born in Sault Sainte Marie, Ontario, where he completed his high school and first year of college. He was a kind and loving man. At times misunderstood, however, he would do anything he could to help someone out. Brian loved the outdoors, and he also loved golfing. He worked over 35 years in retail and construction. Brian was also a member of the Catholic Church.

Brian was married to Kristen Nadobney. He was a loving and devoted father and Grandfather. Brian was an amazing grandfather to Lilith Burns. Even though it was only a little while that he got to spend with Lilith, Brian spent as much time with her as he could. That meant the world to Lilith and Colin. You will be dearly missed.

Brian will be lovingly remembered by his son, Colin Justin Burns; granddaughter, Lilith Burns; niece Meghan Burns-Lang (Stephen); mother, Violette Bujold (Maurice); brother, Kevin Burns (Trish); and sister, Angela Schock (Michael); and also by the many members of his extended family. Brian was predeceased by his wife Kristen Burns (nee Nadobny) and by his father, Martin Burns.
