Oliver Burns Tribute

MYB Remembers Oliver Burns

Updated Wednesday May 8, 2019 by Darren Burbank.

On Saturday May 4, 2019,  we sadly and unexpectedly lost our dear friend Oliver Burns.  This beautiful, young soul touched so many of our hearts in so many ways in his short time with us here on earth. Many knew Oliver by Ollie as a fun and energetic friend.  He loved many things and baseball was one of them.  He loved the game his big brother Phoenix and mother Nikki help teach him. 

We would like to show our love, respect and support for his mother Nikki and big brother Phoenix and to all of their extended family at this incredibly difficult time in their lives.   Words cannot express how devastated  we all are at his sudden passing.  His heart was full of love for everyone and his smile truly  infectious. He had a way of smiling that couldn't not make you smile in return.  

We know that there are so many families and friends who were touched by Oliver's wonderful and fun loving energy.  This passing is difficult for many to understand and fathom. Many of us at Meridian Youth Baseball have had the opportunity to get to know the Mischo/Burns family, and have had the pleasure of playing baseball with Oliver. As a special tribute to Oliver and his family, the league will observe a moment of silence before the games on May 8. 

A gofund me page has been setup on behalf of the Burns family.  We would like to invite you to make any donation you are able to at this time to support the family.
