Duane L. Brunick, 90, formerly of Vermillion, SD passed away Tuesday, November 10 at the Ava’s House in Sioux Falls, SD.

Duane was born on November 4, 1930. He married his sweetheart, Lorraine Mockler, on June 11, 1953. He and his wife owned Brunick Body Shop and Brunick Trailer Court for many years.

Duane was also a member of the Fraternal Order of Eagles and St. Agnes Catholic Church in Vermillion. His other enjoyments in life were driving stock cars, hunting, league bowling, having coffee with friends, and being with family.

He is survived by two sons; Rick (Holly) and Randy (Lori), two daughters; Linda (Ron) Ingalls and Julie (Jeff) Lorensen all of Sioux Falls. Also surviving him are 6 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren.

He was welcomed into heaven by his wife, Lorraine, parents, Nels and Lucy (Hofman) Brunick, brother, Nels Jr, and grandchild, Brianna Lorensen.

As a long time Coyote enthusiast, memorials may be directed to the Howling Pack at the University of South Dakota.

Randy, Rick and families,
My deepest sympathies in the loss of your dad. Despite knowing that are parents lived a good life and that they were truly ready to enter heaven and reap the rewards of a life well lived, it is still difficult letting them go. I have no doubt that your mom was there with open arms, ready to care for your dad again. And I would be willing to be she had him walking within a very short time of his arrival! Know that they are happily together again and awaiting the arrival of each of you when you reunite in Christ.
In my prayers in the days and months to come.
Kay Bierle Hansen
