Edward Bruntz, 85, of LaSalle, died on Wednesday, May 13, 2009 at his home. He was born on September 2, 1923 northeast of LaSalle to Adam and Minnie (Bruntz) Bruntz. When he was a toddler, the family moved to the Beebe Draw area. He attended Beebe Draw School. As a teenager, he assisted his father with the family dairy farm. Edward married Helen L. Winters on June 5, 1943. They settled on a farm near Beebe Draw, near his parents. He was inducted into the US Army and served in the Asiatic Theatre. He was honorably discharged and returned home to the farm where he operated a dairy. Edward served on the board of the Platteville Irrigation Ditch Company for many years. He also served on the Beebe Draw School Board and was a member of the Seventh-day Adventist Church where he served as Elder and Sabbath School teacher and school board member for the Adventist Church School. He took very few vacations. His goal in life was to provide his children with the college education that he was not afforded. That goal was achieved, as all of his children are college graduates.

Worth, TX; three daughters, Sally Tochterman and husband Frank of Clinton, MA, Loretta Baker and husband Ted of Roseburg, OR and Debra van den Hoven and husband Dr. Raymond of LaSalle, CO.
