Phillip Allan Burns was born May 18, 1982 in Mitchell, SD to Charles and Bonnie Burns. He continuously attempted the impossible to reach the possible. Phillip always had smiles to give away and countless stories to tell. While he loved the outdoors and writing, his greatest joy in life was being a dad. Phillip will always be remembered as a father and a friend who was like indelible ink, he was always there for anyone who needed him. He was funny, yet his hand gently guided with strength and courage. He was granted his angel wings and now his light will shine down through the heavens.
Phillip is survived by April Trotter, mother of his two sons, Austin and Elliot Burns all of Colorado; his girlfriend, Justina Jones and her three children, his mother, Bonnie Burns of Mitchell, father, Charles Burns of Sioux Falls, brother, James Burns of Mitchell, sister, Jenny (Jerell) Pfeifer of Alaska and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
