Dick Bruneau

November 17, 1941 ~ November 29, 2019 (age 78)


Richard “Dick” Bruneau, age 78 of Ada, Michigan, passed away peacefully Friday afternoon, November 29, 2019.  Born in Detroit on November 17, 1941, he was the son of Mary Jane and Richard Desire Sr. He lived in and around the Ada area for over 30 years.  In that time he enjoyed working for Amway Corporation in various roles throughout his 30 plus year career.

Dick was a serious Michigan State Spartan fan and almost always sported his team’s gear in some form year-round.  He also had an eye for fashion and often led the family on scouting trips to find the best deals from his favorite Polo brand. Dick was an avid reader, golfer, tool collector and carpenter who enjoyed doing most, if not all, of the renovations on his most recent home.  He enjoyed participating in his grandchildren’s hobbies and activities from cars to sledding to playing games. 

Loving Father of Monique (Keith) Keegan of Granville, Ohio, Renee (Jeff Wright) Bruneau of Denver, Colorado, and Trey (Jodee) Bruneau of Ada, Michigan.  Proud Grandfather of Maxfield Keegan, Francine Wright, Carlisle Wright, Sydney Bruneau, Lilly Bruneau, and Rylee Bruneau.
