Robert John Brugger , Age: 99
June 10, 1923 -- June 10, 2022

Robert J. Brugger passed away peacefully at home on his 99th birthday. He was preceded in death by his parents Margaret (Trapley) and Herman Brugger and his dear sisters Eleanore (Harvey) Featherly and Margaret (Paul) Kropp. Uncle Bob was adored by nieces and nephews JoAnn Smith, Lynn Richmond, Mary Cantrell (John Hauptmann), Harvey “Duke” Featherly (Gretchen), Dahli Kroplewski, the late Richard (Margaret) Kropp and Michael (Elizabeth) Kropp. A beloved great uncle (and great great uncle and great great great uncle) to multitudes of nieces and nephews, he outlived his many friends. Bob served his country in World War II as an Army PFC in communications, stationed in North Africa, Italy, France and Germany. The carrier pigeons he tended sent vital messages to the front lines. As a younger man he enjoyed traveling with friends and family, and when he got older, would never turn down a trip to the casino. The twinkle in his eye came from a devilish sense of humor. He was a kind and generous man, who was dearly loved.

Visitation will be on Monday, June 20 at Olson Burke/Sullivan Funeral and Cremation Center, 6471 N. Northwest Hwy. (1 blk north of Devon), Chicago, from 4 pm until 7 pm.
