Timothy Charles Burns

Marion - Timothy Charles Burns, age 60, of Marion, died peacefully on Sunday, July 29, 2018, at home in his sleep.

On September 25, 1957, Tim was born in Marion, Ohio, the older of two sons of John "Tex" Burns and the late

Phyllis Ann (White) Burns. He graduated from Marion Harding High School in the class of 1976, where he excelled

in football. He furthered his education at West Liberty State University in West Virginia, earning a B.S. degree in Business.

Following college, Tim joined his father and brother as a journeyman iron worker. He suffered a tragic construction accident

on May 2, 1990, leaving him unable to care for himself. He shared a special relationship with his parents, who lovingly cared

for him for the past twenty eight years.

Tim will be missed by his father, John "Tex" Burns of Marion; brother, John H. (Melody) Burns II; a niece, Joy (Tim) Merryman;

two great-nieces and one great-nephew; an aunt, Deborah (Dan) Crabtree; and two cousins: Danielle Crabtree, and Chad Crabtree.


Including his mother, Tim was preceded in death by his grandparents: Charles and Ethel Burns, and Dick and Eloise Carr;

aunt, Dianna Crabtree; and an uncle, Steven Carr.
