Donald Allen Bruns, 62, of Christopher and formerly of the Pinckneyville and Du Quoin area passed away Saturday, Nov. 25, 2017, at his home.

He was born to a farmer and his wife in Pinckneyville but spent most of his life in Du Quoin. He was older brother to Ramona Gayle and Anthony Todd. He enjoyed taking things apart and putting them back together. He also enjoyed helping his Dad on the farm. A few years ago, just before his physical heart began to fail, he had a life-changing encounter with Jesus that was very evident to his family and friends. He leaves behind a legacy of kindness, even though he had a hard time with women. He will be missed by his extended family (including nieces and nephews), close friends and his church family.

The memorial service will be at 6:30 p.m. Friday, Dec. 1, 2017, at South Side Baptist Church, 612 S. Emma St. in Christopher. Visitation will be from 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. at the church. Gilbert Funeral Home in Christopher is assisting the family with arrangements. For more information, go to our website
