8 / 18 Special Memorial Services Today for Dale Brunner


Law enforcement officers from across the state are expected to attend a special Mass and reception today at Holy Angels Church on North Eighth Street in West Bend for the late Dale Brunner, who died last week. Brunner spent more than 40 years in law enforcement including ten years as a Washington County Sheriff’s Department deputy and as a Milwaukee police officer for 31 years. He was active in the Law Enforcement Torch Run for Special Olympics, serving as Wisconsin’s first director of the run in 1986. In 1999 the Wisconsin Law Enforcement Torch Run Dale Brunner Hall of Fame Award was created to recognize individuals who have significantly contributed to the success of the run. He was also a founding member and former vice president of the Wisconsin Chapter of the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Visitation at the church will be 9 a.m.-noon. After the Mass there will be a run/walk with the Special Olympics torch to Lac Lawrann Conservancy. A procession of uniformed officers in their squad cars at 1 p.m. will start at Ninth Avenue and Cedar Street and head up Ninth to Washington Street, then east to Schmidt Road to Lac Lawrann. There will be food, drink and music at Lac Lawrann following the procession and run.
