David Bruns Obituary

David J. Bruns, the son of Herbert W. and Bettie Jane (Nelson) Bruns, was born March 21, 1959, at Superior, Nebraska. He departed this life unexpectedly on Tuesday, December 19, 2023, at the Thayer County Hospital in Hebron, Nebraska at the age of 64 years, 8 months and 28 days.

David received his formal education attending and graduating from the Superior High School. He was married to Pamela Keeling and this union was blessed with a son, Jon, in 1987. They made their home together in the Superior area where David worked as a semi-mechanic from his own shop. They later divorced. He then began his career working with Reinke Manufacturing at Deshler in the maintenance department. In 2020, he was united in marriage with his longtime partner, Trish Frye, and they made their home at Ruskin.

In his leisure time David pursued a number of interests and activities, including gardening, canning, fishing and hunting. He was also a lifelong lover of animals and loved having his horses, cats and dogs.

Preceding him in death were his parents, Bettie and Herb Bruns.

Left to treasure his memory are his loving wife, Trish; his son, Jon Bruns; sisters, Connie Pike and husband, Larry; Sheryl Parrish and husband, Bob; and a brother, Steve Bruns. Also surviving are several nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.

Services were Friday, 11:00 am, December 29, 2023, at the Bethany Lutheran Church in Ruskin with the Rev. Lori Kitzing officiating.
