Dalyn Bruemmer, 64, of Red Wing, went to his reserved seat in Heaven, on Thursday, February 24, 2022 at the Bayview Care Center. He was born June 6, 1957, in Hendricks, Minnesota, to Donald and Dolores (Jurgens) Bruemmer. His family moved to Red Wing, where he attended St. John’s Lutheran School and graduated from Red Wing Central High School in 1976. He started working for IRC in 1974, continuing on with ProAct, retiring in 2020. In 1982, Dalyn moved into his first REM home in Red Wing, and has resided with them ever since. He has made many friends and bonds with his housemates and staff throughout the years. He was a life-long member of St. John’s Lutheran Church and had been a part of the church choir. Dalyn had a strong faith and his relationship with God was a very important part of his life. He was a talented singer and sang the National Anthem for several of the Red Wing Figure Skating events and also at Special Olympics events. He had a knack for writing poetry and an amazing ability to recite and remember them. Back in the 80’s he was on a bowling league and had an all-time high game of 231. He enjoyed fishing with his dad and spending time with his family. He kept busy with puzzles, crafts and latch hook and always looked forward to attending summer camp at Camp Friendship. Dalyn did a good amount of traveling and experiencing all that life had to offer for him—he was blessed to live his life to the fullest.
He is survived by his siblings, Dean (Sheila) of Winona, Lionel (Misty) of Aberdeen, SD and Dawn (Paul) Gielau of Red Wing; sister-in-law, Jean (Ken) Bruemmer; many nieces, nephews and great-nieces/nephews and an uncle, Marvin (Rita) Jurgens of Chanhassen and his life-long friend, Shirley Kirtz.
He was preceded in death by his parents; a brother, Larry and a niece, Delora-Ann Patterson.
