Donald P. Bruns, 79, of Maple Lake died Wednesday, Sept. 19, 2018, at Guardian Angels Hospice at Park View Care Center in Buffalo.

A Mass of Christian burial is planned for 10:30 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 25, at St. Timothy Catholic Church, Maple Lake with Fr. John Meyer as Celebrant. Burial followed at St. Timothy Catholic Cemetery. Visitation was held from 4 to 7 p.m. on Monday and from 9 to 10 a.m. on Tuesday, both at the Dingmann Funeral Care Chapel, Maple Lake.

Don is survived by his children, Alan (Teresa) Bruns of Maple Lake and Sandra (Ronald) Borell of Ramsey; grandchildren, Tyler (Paige) Bruns, Megan Bruns, Jeff Borell and Dan Borell.

He was preceded in death by his wife, Dorothy in 1974; son, William "Bill" Bruns in 2008; daughter-in-law, Mary (Langanki) Bruns in 2014; parents, Peter and Margaret Bruns; brothers, Raymond and Francis Bruns; and sister, Margaret Meissen.

Donald Peter Bruns was born May 19, 1939, in Maple Lake to Peter and Margaret (Mares) Bruns. He graduated from Maple Lake High School with the Class of 1957. On June 15, 1963, Don was united in marriage to Dorothy A. Pribyl at St. Timothy Catholic Church in Maple Lake. Don worked for Mammoth Industries for many years before retiring in 2001. He had a hobby farm west of Maple Lake where he raised his three children. Don enjoyed spending time with his family on the farm and telling stories with friends. He also enjoyed trips to the casino, garage sales, auctions, working on tractors and helping people. He attended St. Timothy Catholic Church and usually visited with friends afterwards. He was happy at Park View and stayed busy playing bingo, going to church, attending parties, making bird houses, growing sweet corn, taking the van to dances and fixing things for others. The nurses and staff were always happy to see Don and visit with him.
