Gregory A. Burns, 34

Obit Gregory BurnsWorcester - Gregory A. “Greg” Burns, 34, of Worcester, passed away Thursday, Aug. 29, 2013 at the Rose Monahan Hospice Residence, after an eight-year battle with a brain cancer.

He leaves his loving wife of seven years, Krystal (Goodney) Burns; his beloved two sons, Collin and Ethen Burns; his parents, John and Patricia Burns of Hudson; his brother, Michael Burns of Hudson; his father- and mother-in-law, Donald and Bonnie Goodney of Shrewsbury; two sisters-in-law, Heather Redman and her husband Jonathan and Nicole Hill and her husband Nicholas; and two nieces and a nephew. He was predeceased by his maternal and paternal grandparents, a sister, an aunt, and an uncle.

Greg was born in Waterbury, Conn., and moved to Hudson as a child. He graduated from Assabet Valley Regional Technical School in 1998. He held multiple jobs before his diagnosis in 2005.

Greg loved fishing, hunting, and playing video games. His true passion was for football, whether playing or just being a supportive fan. He would watch anything that had to do with football, but especially enjoyed watching his two favorite teams, the New England Patriots and the San Francisco 49ers.

A prayer service celebrating Greg's life will be held Tuesday, Sept. 3, at 11 a.m., in the Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home, followed by burial in Mountain View Cemetery of Shrewsbury.

Instead of flowers, Greg's family requests that donations be made to the American Brain Tumor Association (www.abta.org), 8550 W. Bryn Mawr Ave., Suite 550, Chicago, IL 60631.
