Passed away peacefully on November 17, 2021 at the age of 86. He is the loving husband of Annaliese (nee Stutz) Bruder of 49 years; loving father of Tanya (Dana) Schulz, Stepfather of Donald Bullock (fiancée Pam), and Ronald (Anne) Bullock; proud Opa of 8 grandchildren and 2 great-grandchildren. Further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends. Herb was preceded in death by his parents August and Elma, and twin brother Egon Bruder and sister Erika Thiel.
Herb was born in Germany and he and his family immigrated to America in 1950. He worked on the family farm in Iowa before moving to Milwaukee, WI. Herb worked in tool and die for over 30 years at Briggs & Stratton. He loved traveling, fishing, spending time up north in Three Lakes, WI, working out and visiting with friends at the WAC Menomonee Falls, and watching his grandchildren play sports.
Words cannot express how much our loving husband, father and Opa will be deeply missed. In keeping with Herb’s wish, no services will be held.
