Memories is when our family would be on vacation and we would come to your place almost every year. You would take us to the Y.M.C.A. to swim. That was fun. We would stay over night and have fun . We would do things all the time. I enjoyed that. Went to Bobbi's wedding and Deb's. It was beautiful. All of you are great to us. Your parents where wonderful and well missed. Stories where funny and laughter . They where one happy couple and have good kids. Well loved. Memories will always be there. God bless you. Love, Linda

I was saddened to hear of the passing of my Uncle Bob. Even though, as a child, I lived some distanced from Beaver Dam I always experienced great joy whenever we went to visit our wonder Aunt and Uncle. Uncle Bob always made the time to take us to the YMCA to swim, play basketball, and even jump on the trampoline (which was always my favorite). GREAT MEMORIES. We would also go boating on the lake if we made it up during the summer which was a real treat. I remember him as being a quiet and gentle man who loved his family and friends unconditionally. I was so envious of my cousins for having such an engaged father who always seemed to have time for his children. He was a great role model for what a real man, husband and father should be. He and Aunt Jean raised three wonderful children who I looked up to as my older cousins (I thought they were the coolest). I don't want to take up any more space so i will wrap this up. To Rockey, Bobbie and Debbie, your dad was a great man and I am truly sorry for your loss. It is my belief that he is now with your mother and walks in the greatest kind of love one can experience. Please know that I love all of you very much and will keep you in my prayers. May God bless you with the strength and peace you will need to navigate these difficult waters. . . . Love, Brett

I remember playing catch with Bob in his parents yard. Even though I was younger, he took the time to show me how to hold and throw a football. I also remember when he introduced Jean to my parents. They were a great looking couple. My condolences to his family.

I remember Mr. Brunelle pretty well. He and my Dad were great friends. I was one of the first gym rats to enter the Y during the 70's on a Saturday morning. He was very kind to me. He also coached me in basketball in the 7th grade and designed a double pick play specifically for me. He was an easy man to talk to...especially for an energetic kid like me. He also let me use the Y when I came home from college to work out and to blow off some steam. He had an even keel personality and was very approachable. I hope he had a great retirement. May he rest in peace.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Deb, Bobbie, and Debbie, Your Dad was One -In-A-Million. He was a Good Man and a Good Friend with a witty sense of humor and wonderful personality. He made the World a better place, as he was always ready to help those with a need. He was also a great athlete even after midlife. In the 1980's he cycled to our house in St. Augustine, FL, from Hilton Head, SC, a long car drive, and he told me he later biked in Italy along the Cinque Terre of the Amalfi Coast in Italy. He was also a talented Actor and Choreographer, Pianist, and Businessman, and he could fix anything. We will miss our exchange of emails and phone calls and knowing he was alive. He will live on in you kids.

I was so sorry to hear today of Bob's passing. Bob was an important part of my life during his years as Physical Director for the Sheboygan YMCA. He was my mentor when I was in high school and led me to follow him in a career with the Y which ironically took me to Beaver Dam to follow him as Director there. We are currently out of state and unable to attend the funeral but Jane and I send our deepest condolences.

Bobbie, Debbie & Rocky - my deepest sympathy for your loss. I have so many fond memories of just 'hanging out' at your house in Beaver Dam during our teen years. Your dad and mom (Mr. & Mrs B to me) were the greatest! I'll always remember Mrs B's indescribable and infectious laughter - always followed by Mr B's wide tooth grin - the very one captured so perfectly in this picture. My heart goes out to all of you.

We are so sorry to hear of Bob's passing and will always remember the days our two families spent many hours together. The Letizia's seemed to have travelled to visit the Brunelle's wherever they settled and we had great times together. Times never to be forgotten!
