Dwayne Raymond Bruns was born October 19, 1943, in St. Cloud to Raymond and Virginia (Capes) Bruns. He graduated from Annandale High School with the Class of 1961; he continued his education at the University of Morris-Midwest Banking School and the St. Olaf College-Minnesota School of Banking.

On July 11, 1964, Dwayne was united in marriage to Shirley Rudolph, at the Annandale United Methodist Church. He has worked at the Annandale State Bank since 1971; serving as executive vice-president, president, CEO and chairman. Dwayne was active in the Minnesota and American Bankers Associations including a year as president of the MBA. He was very involved in the Annandale community serving 12 years on the school board and many years on numerous other local boards. He was a member of the Kiwanis Club and chamber of commerce and worked for years with the Annandale Fourth of July celebration. He was also very active in the Kimball Church of Christ community.

Dwayne worked hard and played hard but always made everything "fun." He loved to golf and enjoyed many, many outings with friends and business associates across the country. He also loved to travel and family get-togethers. But most of all, he loved his family and friends. He attended every school and athletic event possible that his grandchildren were involved in - always offering encouragement and praise.

Honorary urn bearers: His grandchildren.

Memorials are preferred to the Kimball Church of Christ or the Virginia G. Piper Cancer - Clinical Trials Center.
