Welcome to the memorial page for

Brian Paul Brunner

May 28, 1968 ~ May 15, 2017 (age 48)

Age 48, our beloved husband, son, brother, uncle, nephew, cousin and friend, left this world far too soon on the morning of May 15th, 2017. Brian is survived by the love of his life and wife of nineteen years, Sherri R. (nee Nightingale) Brunner. Brian will also be profoundly missed by his father and mother Paul and Mary (nee Zurn) Brunner, his loving sisters Andrea (Robert) Nelson and Katie (Shawn) Miller. Big Uncle B will be GINORMOUSLY missed by his adoring nieces, Lila Nelson, Anna Nelson, Cassidy Miller, Erin Miller and his awestruck nephew Hugh Nelson.

Brian’s big arms reached out and embraced his entire extended family of aunts, uncles and cousins <3, especially his uncle and namesake, Godfather Brian A. Brunner, and late Godmother Geraldine Richardson. He was especially loved by his godchildren: Patrick Ciganek, Lila Nelson, Erin Miller and Owen Brunner.

Brian was extremely proud of his Catholic faith and his family. Brian also proudly served his country in the Army Reserves from 1986 to 1992. He especially enjoyed spending time with his family on summer weekends at Little Muskego Lake and in the north woods at Garmisch USA. Brian was also the Director of Fun instigating Board Meetings, Packer parties and road trips, Brewer tailgates and too many Brunner dance parties to count. He was an avid reader and was also passionate about his music which had an eclectic flavor.

Brian was the owner, President and driving force behind his very successful business, Floorcare USA, Inc. He will be deeply missed by his employees and many business associates.  He was known for his great relationship building, sales skills and business integrity.  

Brian is preceded in death by grandparents Alfred and Lila Brunner and Albert and Dorothy Zurn.
