Died: Sunday, August 25, 2013
Age: 89
Richard Patrick Brugger, 89, born March 17, 1924, passed peacefully in his sleep near his home in Boerne, Texas, early the morning of August 25, 2013.

Dick was a longtime resident and member of the second of five generations of Bruggers to reside in Lake Geneva. He served two years in the Pacific Theater during World War II with the U.S. Marine Corps.

After the war he returned to Lake Geneva where he raised his family, served several terms as municipal judge for the city of Lake Geneva and was an active member of the Wisconsin State Bar Association. An avid golfer, Dick was also a long-term member of Hillmoor Golf Club.

He is survived by his brother, Jack; his sister, Betty Bartelson; his wife, Lubica; four sons, Thomas, Ross, Robert Barnaby and Richard Dale; as well as his two stepchildren, Zora Shinn and Robert Stanisic.

Memorial service was at St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church in Lake Geneva on Tuesday, Sept. 3. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity of one’s choice in Dick’s name would be deeply appreciated by the family.
