Joe Bruntmyer Memorial Fund

Hello Friends,

After a brief battle with cancer, Joseph Bruntmyer, of Round Lake, IL, passed away on April 4, 2018 at the all too young age of 42.  Joe touched the lives of everyone who knew him, as well as many whose lives were improved by his work in management for Morton Grove Parks and Recreation.

Joe was the loving husband of Heather, proud father of August, aged 5, Jackson, aged 4 and Molly, aged 1. He is preceded in death by father Michael on Jan. 10th, 2013, and mother Meuricia Bruntmyer on June 22nd, 2017.

Beloved brother of Jennifer Argeros and Janelle Sorenson; Brother-in- law to James Argeros. Steve Sorenson, Tina Zabrodsky, Ron Stark, and Brian Stark. Cherished son-in-law of Ron and Margo Stark;
dear uncle to many nieces and nephews.

Due to his illness, and as the sole income provider, Joe's family, Heather, August, Jackson and Molly are struggling with medical expenses, a mortgage and other bills as they face an uncertain immediate future.

All donations will go straight to Joe's wife and children.
