Obituary

The entire Flinch & Bruns family extends our heartfelt love, respect and gratitude to the family of Edward A. Bruns. 

 

 

Bruns, Edward A. of Zephyrhills, Fl. and Malverne, NY, on May 17, 2022 at 84.

 

Predeceased by his beloved wife Patricia.  Survived by his loving children, Denise Diaz ( Anthony), Stacey Green, (Edward Thomas), Kelly Treacy (James).  Cherished Grandfather to Jacquelyn, William, Anthony, Devin, Thomas, Nicole, Kelsey and Kathryn. Loving Great Grandfather to Louis and Dominic.

 

Edward was born in Oceanside, NY and moved to Malverne where he attended schools there and graduated from Malverne Senior High School in 1955.  He attended the University of Miami in 1955-1956 and then served in the US Air Force from 1956-1960 as a Russian Interpreter.  Upon returning home, Ed decided to go into the “family business”.  He started working at Flinch & Bruns Funeral Home, owned by his father, Edward M. Bruns and grandfather, Armand S. Flinch.  He worked there at night while attending Mc Allister Funeral Directing School during the day in order to get his license in funeral directing.  While doing this, he met his bride to be Patricia. Edward and Patricia attended kindergarten years earlier together.  Who knew they’d meet up again.  They married in 1961 and moved to Malverne where they raised their 3 daughters.  

 

Edward was a member of many clubs, Lynbrook Vulcan Fire Department, Lions Club, Elks, Knights of Columbus. But was most proud to part of the GIFT OF LIFE CLUB… He donated GALLONS OF BLOOD during his lifetime.  Which he would do proudly.  He was always about helping and giving to others.  Ed always had a joke for you, no matter how bad you thought things could be, he would make you laugh.  He will be missed by so many.
