Corey H. Burns Obituary
Corey Harrison Burns, 28, passed away on April 2nd, 2018 at his parents home in Rye NH, following a life-long battle with lung disease. Corey was born on July 18, 1989 in Providence, RI, the beloved son of Thomas and Tammie (Usher) Burns. Corey spent his first six years in Franklin, MA and Laguna Hills, CA but for most his life he lived with his twin sisters in Acton, Massachusetts. He graduated from Acton-Boxborough Regional High School in 2008. His chronic respiratory problems often left Corey short of breath, but never short on love. He is remembered for his huge heart, endless generosity and fierce determination. Despite requiring oxygen 24/7, Corey enjoyed tubing on Squam Lake, jet-skiing and all things Apple! He was always up on the latest technology and loved Japanese comics and cartoons. In October 2014 Corey moved to Durham, North Carolina and received a double-lung transplant from Duke Hospital and got a new lease on life. He walked 5Ks, hiked mountains with his sisters and moved into his own apartment. He traveled extensively, including trips to Arizona, California, Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Alaska, and Nevada. He remained close to his fellow organ transplant patients and was a tireless supporter in their times of need. Corey is survived by his parents Tom and Tammie Burns of Rye, NH and his sisters Hayley Burns and Jamie Burns. He also leaves his maternal grandparents, Elaine and Ron Soy of Surprise, AZ, and many aunts, uncles and cousins. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandparents, Barbara and Jim Burns of Berlin, NH To honor Corey's memory, please consider becoming an organ donor. Visit http:// donatelifenewengland.org/.
