They first lived on his father's farm in Sage township and two years later moved to the Dull farm in Grout township, where they resided until coming to Gladwin in the spring of 1926. Mr. Brunni was a member of F. & A. M. and also a member of Gladwin I.O.O.F. No. 177. He served as city marshall for several years.
