Roy Burns Obituary

Burns, Roy P. 4/2/1948-10/6/2023
Roy Paul “Mickey” Burns of Malden, MA died on October 6, 2023, at the age of 75. He was born
in Malden, Massachusetts in 1948 and was a Sergeant in the U.S. Airforce as part of the 57 th
Interceptor Squadron. Roy was dedicated to serving the Malden community as a Lieutenant in
the Malden Fire Department for 28 years, and as Emergency Management Director for the City
of Malden. After retiring, he split his time between North Conway, NH where he worked as an
Ambassador at the North Conway Country Club; and Cape Coral, FL where he spent his time
golfing, playing poker, and trying to enjoy each day. Roy loved the Patriots and Celtics, tolerated
the Red Sox, and was aware of the Bruins, but most of all he loved his family. His final years
were spent joyfully with Wanda Ellis.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Roy and Eleanor Burns and wife, Maureen (Spencer)
Burns. He met Maureen at Malden Hospital, where they were born two days apart and shared
the nursery together. He is survived by his sisters, Lorraine (Anthony) Church and Karen (Mark)
Miday, his significant other, Wanda Ellis, his children Craig (Ami) Burns, Christopher Burns and
Brian (Tracy) Burns; six grandchildren, Karolyn Burns, Alison Burns Justin Burns, Anthony Burns, Alexis Burns, and Joshua Burns and three great-grandchildren, Xavier, Levi and Ixora. Mickey brought joy to everyone he met with his sense of humor and his quiet reliability – everyone knew they could count on Roy for anything, even without asking.
