Phillip Burns Obituaary, Death – At the age of 56, Phillip Barry Burns was taken from us on August 7, 2020 at the Maury Regional Medical Center. In Columbia, Tennessee on January 13, 1964, Phillip Burns was brought into the world by his late parents, Paul Burns and Norma Tucker Burns. In addition to his employment at Barton Tires in Henryville, which he did for more than three decades, he was employed at Kroger for a total of twelve years. Phillip was a wonderful man who was caring, generous,
hard-working, and had a wonderful sense of humor. He never failed to have a witty comeback ready for anyone who asked him a question. His favorite past times were fishing and hunting deer. In addition to that, he enjoyed participating in and watching sports, particularly basketball. He belonged to Summertown Baptist Church, the Masons, and the National Rifle Association. Everyone who had the privilege of knowing him will mourn his passing deeply.
He is survived by the woman he has been married to for the past 29 years, Brenda Burns; their daughter, Brittany Burns; their son, Marshall Burns; their granddaughters, Zoey and Piper Vaughn; their grandson, Matthew Woo; and their sisters, Terri Story and Lisa Hammond. His father, Paul L. Burns, passed away before him and is buried next to him.

After the funeral, the burial will take place in the Ethridge Masonic Cemetery.
