MOUNT HOREB-Daniel Leo Brunner, age 76 of Mount Horeb, a loving husband, father and grandfather, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by his loving family on Monday, Oct. 14, 2019, after an eight-year battle with cancer.
He was born November 20, 1942, to Fred and Myla Brunner.
Dan served in the Vietnam War from 1968 to 1969. He married Deb Loeffelholz on July 16, 1977 at St. Mary's in Belleville, Wis. A welder by trade, Dan owned Brunner Welding from 2000 until his retirement. He spent most of his career supporting the local farmers with his services.
Dan loved his family and the time spent with them, especially giving golf cart rides to his two grandsons. He enjoyed his vendor booth at flea markets and had many friends that would come back year after year to visit him. He loved going to auctions, especially at Hawley's Auctions where he had a permanent auction number of 101 and was known for his special "Mr B 101" auction cap. He always had a smile on his face and was loved by all who knew him.
