Brian Burgess

Brian Neal Burgess, 67, of Southington, CT, passed away, suffering from lung cancer, on Friday, July 16, 2021. He is now reunited with his wife Cynthia Louise Burgess, who passed away in March 2017.

Born on March 29, 1954 to the late Patricia and George Burgess, he was a longtime resident of Southington who spent his final years in Thomaston.

Brian’s love of music spanned his entire life. He picked up a guitar at a young age and never looked back. He was a member of various local bands spanning over many years, the last being Swift Kick. He loved playing classic rock and his network of fellow musicians were among his closest friends. He also enjoyed rockhounding, making jewelry and firearms.

Brian was the longtime owner of Bristol Guitar. He spent many years there, together with the support of his loving wife, serving the local community and giving lessons. Brian and Cindy are survived by their daughter Faith Emrazian (43) and her husband Aaron of Bountiful, Utah.
