Obituary

John Eugene “Brick” Burroughs

John Eugene “Brick” Burroughs

John Eugene “Brick” Burroughs was born in a small house on Green Street in Burlington City NJ on 8 March 1928 to John Burroughs (1900-1988) and Ernestine (Williams) Burroughs (1908-1998). He was the oldest of the couple’s four sons.  He departed this life as he lived, peacefully on 27 December 2021. John’s father, uncles, and other family members were founding members of Tabernacle Baptist Church, and he was a lifelong, devoted member for 93 years, where he served as a Trustee for many of those years.

 

As a child, John, his brothers, many cousins including his ride or die partner John “Sonny” Schonyers and devoted friends such as Billy and Mimi Hutton, Albert Toomer, and Wade McDaniels, just to name a few, were a tight knit group that formed bonds that lasted a lifetime.

 

In their youth, the brothers formed a singing group known as The Burroughs Boys and were known throughout the area for their melodious songs and tight harmonies.  The Burroughs Boys were even invited to perform on the famous Ted Mack Original Amateur Hour show but refused the gig when the producers of the show insisted that they sing a controversial and racist tune. John could also “cut a rug” on the dance floor and was affectionately known as “Sandpaper” for his dance skills.

 

John received his education through the Burlington City school system.  He also attended The Bordentown School, a residential high school for Black students known as the "Tuskegee of the North" for its adoption of many of the educational practices first developed at the Tuskegee Institute.

 

John married the love of his life, Emma (Webber) Burroughs, on September 3, 1960.  They remained devoted, happily, and faithfully married for 52 years.  He was a very hardworking man and gifted her with their home on 7th Street as a wedding present. During his lifetime he was employed by U.S. Steel, The Roebling Steel Company, and the City of Burlington.  He served faithfully as the church custodian for many years. He could also be seen all over town cheerfully performing small tasks that made life easier for others.  In fact, he was cheerful in everything he did.  When asked how he was doing, he always responded with his famous mantra “I can’t complain, ‘cause it could be worse”. 

 

John was devoted to several things:  God, his wife and family, Tabernacle Baptist Church, and the Dallas Cowboys! Anyone who knew him, knew that the Cowboys were his team!

 

He is preceded in death by his parents, John and Ernestine, his brothers Leon (Alfred) and Dot Burroughs, Raymond, and Mickey (Charles), his wife Emma, and his grandson Myles. He leaves his legacy though his children Mike and Anna (Guy) Burroughs, Maria (Burroughs) and Eric Keitt, Kenny Burroughs, Monica Burroughs, and TyeLisa (Thompson) Burroughs; his grandchildren Aaron Meador, Ashley and Arielle Burroughs, Micah, Ian and Erica Keitt, Nina Burroughs, and Zipporah Mitchell; his great grandchildren Alyana, Kenyon, Kamryn, and Kai Meador, his sisters-in-law Ann Burroughs, Yvonne Burroughs, and Harriett Thomas, as well as a host of other family and friends.

 

John leaves behind a legacy not of fortune and fame as the world would dictate, but of being a great man whose steps were ordered by the Lord.  A man of God, family, character, integrity, and faithfulness.  Well done good and faithful servant.

 

Titus 2:7-8

Show yourself in all respects to be a model of good works, and in your teaching show integrity, dignity, and sound speech that cannot be condemned, so that an opponent may be put to shame, having nothing evil to say about us.
