Gregory Paul Burnsky, 73, of Three Rivers, Michigan, passed away Sunday, July 11, 2021.
He was born May 22, 1948, in Chicago, Illinois, the son of the late Paul and Marian (Smith) Burnsky. The family moved from Park Forest, IL. to Rockville, MD where Greg attended his senior year and graduated from Robert E. Peary High School. He returned to Michigan to receive his Associate in Applied Science degree from Kalamazoo Valley Community College to become an engineer. He also sold real estate and worked at H&H Farms.
Besides having great wit and sense of humor, he was very artistic and creative on so many levels. Building model ships, wood carvings and making beautiful stained glass. His one very large macrame won first prize at the St. Joseph County Fair. He was described as a gentle soul who loved to travel, snow ski, play cribbage and ponder deep thoughts. He was always ready to help those in need and was a very unassuming man.
Remaining to cherish his memory are his sisters, Paula Behrens (Bruce), Bradenton, FL, Madeline Macdonald (Dave), Silver Spring, MD and Marlene Burnsky (Chris Hallvik) Reno, NV and his brother P.J. Burnsky (Donna), Olney, MD. Loving uncle to Marissa Behrens Downs, Dr. Brie Behrens Muller, Paul Burnsky, Ryan Burnsky, Jon Burnsky as well as loving cousins and extended family and friends.
