Wayne Brule

February 12, 1953 — August 20, 2018

Wayne Allan Brule, 65, passed away August 20, 2018 at Villa St Vincent in Crookston MN.

Wayne was born on February 12, 1953 in Crookston to Harvey & Doris Brule. He was in the Air Force from 1971-1977 and spent more than a year stationed on Okinawa, Japan. When he returned, he was married to Dorothy Dahl and they had 3 children. Wayne worked for many years at the family business, Brule Brothers Canvas Shop, and then he moved on to Dahlgren’s for more than 20 years. Wayne was an active volunteer with Military Veterans and the VFW. In 2004, Wayne graduated with an Associates Degree in Computer Networking and started a new career. Sadly, that career was cut short by a major car accident in 2005. Wayne was a fighter and made a miraculous recovery, but was unable to work again. He spent the remainder of his time surrounded by his amazing family in Crookston. Wayne was always quick with a joke and was known for his huge smile and big heart.
