Obituary of David A. Brenneman Jr.

David Anthony Brenneman Jr of Iowa City, passed away suddenly at his home on May 30th at the young age of 53, from a sudden fatal heart attack.  A Celebration of Life will be he held on Sunday June 11th from 2pm – 4pm at the Moose Lodge, 3151 US Hwy 6, Iowa City.  A late lunch of David’s favorite meal, Spaghetti with Salad and Garlic Bread will be served. 

David was an avid sports fan with a special place in his heart for the Iowa Hawkeyes, KC Royals and the Las Vegas Raiders.

David had a gigantic heart and beautiful soul who touched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing him.  His infectious laughter, smile, and genuine kindness towards others brought joy and laughter to those around him.  He truly never knew a stranger.    His absence will forever be felt in the deepest parts of our hearts and beings.

While we mourn his untimely passing, we also want to acknowledge his struggle with depression and anxiety and how silently struggling with any mental illness can lead to worsening of any other existing health issues (as in Davids case heart disease and diabetes).  Please take time to reach out to anyone you know who may struggle with any type of mental illness and give them and extra hug and support. 

In our grief let us find peace in the knowledge that David is finally free of any pain and is now again reunited with his parents who passed before him.  We will forever hold him close in our hearts cherishing the moments we shared and the enormous impact he had on so many lives.  Rest in eternal peace Bucko, your spirit and love you brought into the world will forever be remembered.

David was born on October 3, 1969 in Topeka Kansas at the Forbes Air Force Base to David Sr and Carol (Desmond) Brenneman.  He is survived by his wife Sandy (Daniels) Brenneman, his four children Rebecca (Dayton OH), James (Alex/TT), Joshua and Sara of Iowa City/Coralville.  Stepsons, J.L Matthew (Veronica) Bolinger (OshKosh WI) and Curtis (Melissa) Bolinger (Platte City Missouri), granddaughter Zoey, grandsons Brett and Henry and sister Brandy (Jason) Boswell (Grandview MO), as well as several in laws, nieces and nephews.  He was preceded in death by his parents David Sr and Carole Brenneman (Overland Park KS) and his father in law James Daniels (Leavenworth KS)
