Paul F. Brunner, Jr.

May 9, 1947 — December 9, 2023


Paul F. Brunner, Jr., a dedicated Insurance Agent for Nationwide Insurance Company for over 40 years, passed away on December 9, 2023, in Frederick, Maryland. Born on May 9, 1947, in Illinois, Paul lived a life filled with love and devotion to his family and community. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend who will be deeply missed by all. 

Paul's passion for his work as an insurance agent was evident in the commitment he showed towards his clients. Throughout his four-decade career, he made it his mission to provide the best possible service and support to those in need. Paul proceeded on to a second career with Frederick County in Risk Management.

Outside of work, Paul had a wide range of hobbies and interests that brought him joy throughout his life. He loved bird hunting and was an avid car enthusiast, with a particular fondness for his beloved Corvette. One of Paul's greatest joys came from boating with his sons and grandchildren. The laughter shared and memories made during these moments will forever hold a special place in their hearts.

In addition, Paul actively participated in various community organizations such as the Men's Garden Club, Elks Club, and St. Peter's Catholic Church, Color on the Creek and Winter Solstice.  He found fulfillment in giving back to others and making a positive impact on his community. Paul's generous spirit touched the lives of many and served as an inspiration to those around him.

Among Paul's proudest accomplishments was the love he shared with his family. Spending time with Patricia, his wife of many years, brought him immeasurable happiness. He took constant pride in his son, Keith and daughter-in-law, Jen Brunner as well as his son, Chad and daughter-in-law, Cathy Brunner. Watching them grow into remarkable men and then seeing them start families of their own was a joy.  Paul adored his grandchildren, Devon and Ry Brunner, and cherished every moment he spent with them.

Paul's upbringing was shaped by the love and guidance of his parents, Paul F. Brunner, Sr. and Helen C. Brunner. Paul leaves behind his siblings, Kathy and Teddy Albaugh, and Mary Jo and Raymond Mathews, along with numerous nieces and nephews.
