Brunner worked with the Western Geophysical Company for almost 30 years, in a job that allowed him to travel around much of the world. He enjoyed the travel but missed his family. After retiring from Western he went to work for McCoy’s Hardware where he enjoyed the customer interaction and was able to be with his family every night. He was there for ten years and then retired for a second time. Before and during retirement, he and Annie Joe traveled extensively in the West and particularly loved the Rocky Mountains.
