Timothy J. Brunsink

Timothy John Brunsink, age 48, of Olivet, passed away Monday, February 24, 2020, at Eaton Community Palliative Care. Tim was born April 26, 1971, the son of Dale and Betty (Hall) Brunsink. He was a guy with a rough early life, rugged exterior and gentle interior. Tim was a true one-of-a-kind, generous with the little he had, a hard worker, a prodigal son who returned and, above all, a devoted follower of Jesus Christ. He took great pleasure in helping others and enjoyed the small blessings in life. Tim worked for Olivet Machine Tool since 2015 and in lawn care prior to that. He was a devoted member of the Olivet Congregational Church.
Tim is survived by his son, John Michael Brunsink; one grandson; mother, Betty (George) Banfill; siblings Carrie (Gregg) Mellema, Nicholas (Christie) Coplin, and Kelly (Cheryl) Coplin; aunts Bonnie (Daniel) Judd, Beverly (William) Cahill, and Sally Wilburn; uncles Bernard (Julie) Hall and Wayne (Martha Ann) Brunsink; and special friends, the Frank and Sharon Palacios family.
He was preceded in death by his father.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 14, 2020, at 1 p.m. at the Olivet Congregational Church with Rev. Jack Brown and Frank Palacios officiating. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the church.
Those desiring may make contributions in Tim’s honor to the Olivet Congregational Church, 125 College St., Olivet MI 49076 or Eaton Community Palliative Care, 2675 S. Cochran, Charlotte MI 48813.
