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. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Brian’s family would be greatly appreciated. A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, July 22, 2021 at the South End Cemetery, 200 South End Rd, Plantsville. All are welcome to attend. Plantsville Funeral Home has been entrusted with handling the arrangements. For online condolences and directions, please visit www.plantsvillefuneralhome.com


Very sorry to read that Brian has passed. He was very generous and never let you pay full price at his shop. I liked to visit his store on Saturdays because he attracted a lot of interesting people and he was a very smart, kind guy. I play a red Strat that told me to get and I think of him often.

My sincerest heartfelt condolences to Brian's family and friends. He was a very talented and kind man. I'll always remember him for the beautiful job he did restoring my sisters guitar after she passed away. He will be greatly missed.
