Robert "Bobby" B. Burns Jr.

February 3, 1968 ~ June 30, 2023 (age 55) 55 Years Old


Robert “Bobby” B. Burns Jr., 55, passed away on June 30, 2023. He was born on February 3, 1968 in Barberton, OH where he was a lifelong resident. He was a graduate of Barberton High School, class of 1986.

Bobby was the ultimate family man, a devoted husband to the love of his life and middle school sweetheart, Connie K. Burns, who were inseparable for a total of 41 years. He was the most loving father and took the utmost pride in his four children and son-in-law. He loved his family, his pets, his children’s pets (known to them as Papaw), and his wonderful friends. As a strong and selfless provider, he always put others before himself and was truly a kind, compassionate, and generous gentleman who will forever be deeply missed.

As a perfectionist, Bobby took great pride in his profession as a painter, a craftsman, and was a master of all trades. With an endless supply of stories and his gift of making others laugh, Bobby had the best sense of humor and was always the life of the party. He was an avid Cleveland sports fan and a classic car enthusiast. His favorite hobbies were spent with his loved ones watching movies, playing fantasy football, golfing, fishing, and working around the house.

He is preceded in death by his father Robert “Bob” B. Burns Sr. and his mother LaDosca “Dottie” L. Burns. He is survived by his beloved wife of 31 years, Connie K. Burns (née Kefalos); his children Alexander R. Burns, Emily M. Burns (Peter Ra), Maria (Adam) N. Gainey, and Nicolas J. Burns; siblings Karen (Lou) Descent, Todd (Claudette) Burns, Rebecca (Dave) Wright, and Keith Burns (Pam Beers); many nieces, nephews, relatives, and lifelong friends.
