Leonard “Len” Lee Brunette


Leonard “Len” Lee Brunette, Sr., age 71, of South Range Wisconsin, passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, March 2, 2020 at St. Luke’s Hospital.

He was born in Superior, July 30, 1948, the son of Alex and Ann (Hargarth) Brunette.

He was united in marriage to Debra Miller, March 8, 1980, and they were soon to celebrate forty-years of marriage.

Leonard spent his early years as an Air Born Ranger in Vietnam in the 75th infantry and shared his kind hearted nature while working at the Parkland Health Facility. He was a skilled pool player, known for his trick shots. In later years he spent his time truck driving for Monson Trucking Company, and making truck driver safety videos. He earned himself a million-mile safe driver award. In his retirement years he could often be found with his lawn chair and diet coke facilitating remodeling projects, or playing ample games of cards with his family and friends.

Len is survived by loving wife and best friend of forty years, Debra Brunette. Cherished children Tammy (Steve) Johnson, Lenny (Kat) Brunette, and Elaina Brunette.
