Dennis Franklin Brugman, born on January 15, 1948, in Sacramento, CA, passed away on January 3, 2024, in Chico, CA. He was a loving father, cherished grandfather, and a dear friend to many.
Dennis is survived by his daughter, Tammera Shinar, and son-in-law James P. Shinar II. Unfortunately, he was predeceased by his son, Dennis F. Brugman II. He leaves behind a legacy of love and warmth in the hearts of those who were fortunate enough to know him.
Dennis was the proud grandfather of five grandchildren, each holding a special place in his heart: Kyia Sunderland of Albuquerque, NM, James P. Shinar III of Chico, CA, Nicolas Brugman of Anderson, CA, Kaylee Brugman of Klamath Falls, and River Brugman of Doris, CA.
