Obituary

Richard Patrick Bruhn, 71, of Hamilton, entered into his eternal rest on Tuesday, March 23, 2021 at home surrounded by his loving family. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Richard resided in the Hamilton Township area since 1980. He received his degree in engineering and was employed by several companies starting with General Foods Corp., then Carter-Wallace, followed by Campbell Soup, then Church & Dwight and finally for Arora and Associates, P.C. in Lawrenceville, NJ encompassing a working career of nearly 50 years.


Richard enjoyed gardening and was involved in the community garden at his residential community, Traditions. He loved cooking and baking, and some of his family’s favorites were his breads, pies, and his stromboli. He also enjoyed all classic cars and restoring his son’s vintage 1965 Mustang. He enjoyed sailboating and was a fan of the Detroit Lions, Tigers and Red Wings. Richard loved nothing more than spending time with his beloved granddaughters. Richard was a loving and devoted husband, father, grandfather, brother, and friend to many.

Biggest Brother, you led the way for all of us younger siblings in every way. Your huge loving heart, hearty laugh, optimistic attitude, and desire to include everyone in exploring everything in life to the fullest has been an example for me throughout my life. To say you will be missed hardly begins to contain the sadness about your leaving us all too soon. So many more memories we hoped to make together......But we will take care of Elaine for you, and we will continue to tell stories and jokes about you for years to come! Keeping you in my heart. Love you forever Ricky. xoxo L.Luke (Laura/Laurie/Petite Luke) xoxo

Sorry to hear of Rick's passing... he was quite a guy. The golden announcements voice at Arora and Associates headquarters office in Lawrenceville, a Detroit Lions and Michigan State Spartans fan... a wonderful friend. I miss him. - Bill D., Langhorne, PA
