Dave was born 5/14/40 to Maurice and Lavona (McLaughlin) Brune in Everson, Wa. He grew up in the Everson/Nooksack area. He served in the Air Force from 1957-1961. Afterward, he followed in his Father and Grandfathers footsteps, and became an electrician. He was a proud 50-plus year member of the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local Union 191. He was the 3rd of 5 generations of IBEW 191 Wiremen. Dave met and married many women before finding Lynn Bailey, definitely his match, whom he spent the last 10 years married to. Dave was a man who was much loved by his family and friends and well respected by his peers. If you needed something and he had it, it was yours. Dave was preceded in death by his parents, wife Lynn, sister Tami, brother Tom, and son Doug. He is survived by his Aunt Bea Ronhaar, Brother Ed (Dodi), Sister Penny (Robert, deceased), Son Dave (Julie), Daughter Francyne (Greg), Grandchildren Arron (Jenn), Ian, Kelly, Jerrica, and Keante, many Nieces, Nephews, Cousins, Friends, and his Best Buddy, Toto. He will be truly missed, whether it be laughing at his (lack of) working on his vehicles, watching the Seahawks (and hating the Steelers) or coffee with his brother and best friend Ed. We love you Dad.
