RONALD GENE BRUHN, age 72 of Hardwick, MN died October 26, 2023 at the Sanford Luverne Hospice Cottage after a long battle of illness. He was the oldest of five sisters and two brothers. Ron was born on May 18, 1951, in Luverne, MN to Harm and Evelyn (Wieck) Bruhn. He attended Magnolia High School and graduated in 1969.
Ron was married in 1973 for seventeen years. The couple had four children. In 1979, they moved to Sioux Falls, SD. The greater part of his years, he worked in construction as a heavy equipment operator at Friessen Construction in Sioux Falls. He was known in the construction business as “Tanglefoot”. Later on, Ron worked for First Rate Excavate for three years before retiring in 2016. In 2019, he purchased a home in Hardwick where he enjoyed doing things around the house. Ron was very knowledgeable when it came to working on vehicles and lawnmowers, which he enjoyed doing very much. He will always be remembered for his outgoing personality and his love of western movies and television shows and of course his sweet tooth.
