Tai Richard Strong Burns

February 3, 2005 — March 29, 2022

Tai Richard Strong Burns, age 17, passed away on Tuesday, March 29th, 2022. Tai entered our world loud and clear February 3rd, 2005 in St Louis, MO to his parents Heather Strong-Burns and Kelly Burns surprise, at his volume, and delight at his spirit.

Anyone that met Tai, knew he was a special soul, having an infectious smile and warm personality; Tai was beloved by those that knew him. We are grateful for the 17 years, 1 month and 26 days we had with him, he was a tremendous gift. He will be sorely missed by his family and friends.

Tai was preceded in death by his paternal Grandparents, Jim & Pam Burns, his maternal Great-Grandfathers Edward Quintrall & Richard Strong, his cat Sadee and his dog Max. He is survived by his parents, his brother Trey Edward Strong Burns, his dogs Lucy & Beaux, and his cats Bugsy, Kyle, Henri & Queeno.

In lieu of flowers, please hug and tell your family members that you love them as often as possible – the world needs more of that. If you want to donate to an organization in honor of Tai, please consider donating to the Edwards Foundation an animal rescue that also serves as a therapeutic resource for teenagers struggling with mental health and addiction issues.

The family will be holding a Celebration of Life Service at the Children’s Museum of Denver on Thursday, April 7th, 2022. At 2:00 PM you can go to the ticket counter and give Tai’s name for access to all the wonderful things the Museum has to offer. At 5:00 PM the Skyline Terrace will open where food will be served. At 6:00 PM a select few family members will speak and the fellowship will continue until 8:00 PM. Please feel free to stop by, at any time from 2:00 PM – 8:00 PM and share in the memories of a dynamic, charismatic, beautiful, hilarious, and loving life gone too soon.
