Dennis Earl Brunk was born October 15, 1937, in Davenport, a son of Earl P.P. and Alice L. (Stanley) Brunk. He proudly served our country in the U.S. Air Force. Dennis was united in marriage to Susan M. Rohlfs on June 12, 1965, at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church. She preceded him in death in 2012.
Dennis worked as a production supervisor in the foil mill at Alcoa for 34 years. He retired from that position, but continued on as a consultant in the safety department for 10 years.
He enjoyed surfing the web, watching QVC, but his biggest thrill was being Santa for family and friends. He was a truly generous man and found great joy in gift giving.
Memorials may be made to the American Diabetes Association.
Those left to honor his memory include his son, Tim Brunk; a sister, Charlene (Ed) Vigness, Waubun, Minnesota; a brother, Zeke (Gina) Brunk; and numerous loving extended family and friends.
He was preceded in death by his wife, parents, and two infant children, Tracy and Michael.
