Bob Bruns Obituary, Death – I’m sorry to have to break the news to you that Bob Bruns, a longtime friend and track operator, passed away today. I am sorry to have to be the one to break bad news to you, but it is necessary. In 1999, when I inquired about the possibilities of starting a motocross track in this region of Northwest Indiana, Bob was one of the first track operators (and the only one) that ever communicated to me about the potential of opening a motocross track in this region. In fact, Bob was the only track operator that ever communicated to me about the potential of opening a motocross track in this region.
When no one else picked up the phone when it was his turn, he was there to offer words of encouragement, guidance, and amusement. He was there to offer words of encouragement, direction, and amusement. Due to the fact that my child spent practically every other weekend in Dayton with the other children there, Bob is someone she is extremely familiar with (including Josh Smith, Chris Ransomer, Brandon, and other children whose names I have forgotten but who have found a way to take over my house on weekends that were supposed to be “ours”). It would indicate that he still has some fond recollections of Bob.
During the time that Cam was a patient at that facility, I never once had any cause to doubt the dependability of the care that he received there.
People like Bob and Anna devote a sizable portion of their lives, if not their whole lives, to serving as role models for younger BMX riders…. In addition to the lives of many other people, he had an impact on the lives of a significant number of other individuals. May he rest in peace, and may the lives of as many people as possible be enhanced as a result of the wonderful influence he had on their lives. May he be remembered for the good he did in the world. Please offer a prayer for his wife, Anna, as she struggles to come to terms with the death of the guy she has loved and been with for the all of her adult life. He was the one person with whom she devoted her whole life. RIP Bob.
