David W. Brudon

David W. Brudon, of Chelsea, MI, age 72, passed away on May 12, 2024 at his home in Chelsea, MI. 
 
David was born on November 19, 1951 in Ann Arbor, MI, the son of William and Doris (Turner) Brudon. He spent his formative years in Ann Arbor, where he cultivated lifelong passions and friendships. 
 
David dedicated over two decades of his career as the Director of Marketing for the University of Michigan Hospitals. A true people person, David found joy in every interaction. He loved a good round of golf, going to the theater, and classic movies—particularly black and white and WWII films. An avid reader and music lover, he found joy in all genres of music and literature. He played the tuba and drums. David’s artistic spirit also found expression through his keen eye for photography, capturing moments of beauty and meaning. He loved all animals, especially dogs. His legacy of kindness, compassion, and warmth will forever be treasured by those fortunate enough to have known him. 
 
David is survived by his two children, Nicholas Brudon of Ann Arbor, and Lindsey (Johann) Morse of Marysville; the mother of his children, Lynne Brudon; three grandchildren Anden, Ayla, and Avery; his loving companion of the past five years, Beverly Sisler; one brother, James (Lucia) Brudon of Melrose, FL and a sister, Claudia (Brad) Ewald of Oregon. He was preceded in death by his parents, and his step-mother, Margaret Brudon. 
 
Private interment will take place at Mt. Olivet Cemetery in Chelsea, MI. 
 
A Celebration of Life will take place on Saturday, June 1, 2024, from 2-4 p.m. at 435 Stein Rd., Ann Arbor. After the gathering, the family plans to meet up at Cleary’s Pub in Chelsea to continue the fellowship and raise a glass to David.
