Louis "Bud" Brundick
January 7, 1933 ~ December 21, 2023 (age 90) 90 Years Old
Louis E. “Bud” Brundick, 90 , of Pacific, passed away on December 21, 2023. Mr. Brundick, son of the late Albert Brundick and Melba Fay (Bruns) Brundick, was born on January 7, 1933 in Pacific. He received his education from St. Bridget Grade School and Pacific High School, completing his diploma while in the Air Force. On September 20, 1958, he was united in marriage to Barbara Titter at the St. Bridget’s Church. Bud served his country honorbaly as a member of the United States Air Force.
Bud worked at McDonnell Douglas prior to entering the Air Force. He returned to McDonnell Douglas for several years after his four years in the military. In 1960, he changed careers and started to work in construction as a carpenter. In 1963, he started his own business as Brundick Construction, building both residential and commercial. Construction was still one of his main interests until his death. He loved the fact that his sons and grandsons continued to work in the construction industry and he got so much pleasure in checking on their jobs as they progressed along. He was a lifelong entrepreneur. He was instrumental in the development of Osage West Plaza in Pacific, Greenwood Acres and Greenwood Valley in Pacific, Trail Hill Subdivision and Development in New Haven, and Boulaware Boulevard Subdivision in Perry, MO.
His main hobbies were bird hunting(pheasant and quail) and he had many years of traveling to South Dakota and Nebraska with his hunting buddies; and of course they had a few drinking sessions on these trips. He loved to sit in his big front porch swing and enjoy friends and family just hanging out together; drive around the farm on his tractor and in his truck. In recent years, he had built a pavilion on the farm and that was such enjoyment to him. Bud and Barb had many great trips together, some almost too adventuresome.
Bud was an alderman in Ward 1 (Pacific) for 6 years, member of the American Legion Post 320, Pacific Eagles, Knights of Columbus, and the Pacific Lions Club.
He loved his family around him and loved his grandkids and great grandkids so much. He thought those great grandkids were about the most perfect little people anyone could have around and they were such a comfort to him.
He was preceded in death by his parents; son, Brian Brundick and two sisters, Doris Weislar and Mary Lou Cranmer.
Among his survivors are his wife Barbara Brundick of Pacific; four children, Eric Brundick and wife Traci of Labadie, Laura Brundick and significant other Melinda of Chesterfield, Sara Brundick and husband Mike Gendron of Pacific, Maria Brundick and wife Kristina of Pacific; daughter-in-law, Mindy Brundick of Villa Ridge; twelve grandchildren, Devin and wife Felicia, Kaleigh and husband Tippy, Chloe, Aiden, Kyle and wife Erin, Adam and wife Channing, Grace, Cody and wife Tristen, Tyler, Austin and wife Melissa, Garrett, and Tanner; great-grandchildren, Remi, Seamus, Louis, Charlotte, Nolan, Cyrus, Alice, Brooklynn, Louise, and Bowen; In-laws, Rose Riffel, John Titter and wife Carolyn, Ed Titter, and Rick Titter; nephew, Gary Weislar, other relatives, and many friends.
