Robert E. Bruns, originally from the small town of La Harpe, Illinois in Hancock County, graduated from Western Illinois University in Macomb, Illinois in 1977 with a B.S. degree in Agricultural Sciences.  He served over 25 years in the agriculture community raising livestock and managing a small grain elevator.  Later, he returned to school at Carl Sandburg with a degree in Mortuary Science.  He joined the J.W. Neal Funeral Homes in July of 2005, serving his apprenticeship and becoming a fully licensed funeral director/embalmer in 2006.  Also in 2009 he became a licensed life insurance agent, enabling him to sell and service life insurance for pre-need arrangements.

Robert is married to Cindy Siegworth Bruns.  They have been married for over 36 years and have four children, Elizabeth Dixon of Athens, IL, Lydia Anderson of Lawrenceville, IL, Rebekah Neimerg of Mascoutah, IL and John Bruns of Effingham, IL.  In addition, they have been blessed with five grandchildren thus far.  His wife Cindy teaches in the Flora Community School District #35 at the junior high.  

Robert is a member of the Red Brush Christian Church of Louisville, where he also serves as an elder of the church.  He has been a member of the Louisville Rotary since 2005 and served as the president from July 2010 to July 2011.

Robert has always lived in a small town rural setting.  He loves the friendliness and the caring for each other that the Louisville communities have shown to each other and to him since he arrived in 2005.  He strives to return that love and caring to each of the families that he has the opportunity and privilege to serve.
