After a hard-fought and courageous battle with cancer, Wayne Brummund passed away peacefully in his sleep at home surrounded by his family on March 2, 2017. Wayne is survived by his wife of 35 years, Kathy, and twin daughters, Morgan and Mackenzie. Throughout his life, he touched many athletes as a coach for soccer and softball; however, the game of basketball was what he was most passionate about. Over a 25-year span, he coached high school girls basketball at Del Oro, Nevada Union, Granite Bay, Oakmont, and younger athletes at YBA and ARD basketball clubs. Wayne was the owner and operator of Brummund Appraisals and was an active member of the Loomis community.
Born in South Bend, Indiana, on July 17, 1953, Wayne was the son of William L. Brummund and Barbara L. Vanderburg. In 1963, Wayne and his brothers moved across the country to North Hollywood, California, where he graduated from North Hollywood High School in 1971. In 1984, Wayne and Kathy moved to Carmichael and later to Loomis, where they built their home together, raised their daughters, and where Wayne spent the rest of his life.
Wayne was preceded in death by his mother Barbara Vanderburg and his mother-in-law Ellen Conklin. In addition to his wife Kathy and their daughters Mackenzie and Morgan, Wayne is survived by his father and stepmother Bill and Dorie Brummund of Apple Valley, Minnesota, his brothers Terry and Gregg Brummund and their families, both of Arnold, California, his father-in-law Gene Conklin of North Hills, California, his stepbrothers, Tim, Kevin, and Terry McDermott and their families, his brothers-in-law Kevin and Kelly Conklin, his sister-in-law Kerry McCrea, and their families.
Kathy and the girls would like to thank the staff and doctors in the Roseville Kaiser Permanente Oncology Department and the hospice staff at Interim Healthcare for their compassion and care throughout Wayne's battle with cancer.
Cancer has become an epidemic in modern society and takes the lives of millions every year. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to the American Cancer Society, or a charity of your choice.
A Celebration of Life for Wayne is planned for Sunday, March 19, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. at Maidu Community Center. A short reception will follow the ceremony.
