Ryan John Bruhn, age 47 of Waseca, passed away peacefully in the comforts of his home on November 18, 2022.

Born on September 28, 1975, in Detroit Lakes to Steve and Diane (Schwandt) Bruhn. Ryan grew up in Vergas, Minnesota and attended Frazee Public School, graduating with the class of 1994. After graduating, Ryan worked alongside his dad on the family farm. He then relocated to Waseca, where he worked for Greener World Solutions. In 2017, Ryan returned to his love of farming in Vergas. 

Ryan enjoyed hunting, riding his Harley, farming, spending time with his nieces, hanging out with his dog “JB”, throwing bags with his brother-in-law, and going on adventures with his daughters! 

Ryan had three amazing daughters who were the center of his life. He was their biggest and loudest supporter at all their events, from sports to dance recitals and everything in between. He also volunteered his time as a coach.  He was a true “girl dad” – enjoying Starbucks runs and TikTok dances.

Ryan is survived by his daughters: Morgan, Mallory, and Ava of Waseca; mother: Diane Bruhn of Vergas; sister: Sara (Greg) Sliter of Rice; nieces: Ella and Olivia Sliter; and several aunts, uncles, cousins, other relatives, and friends. 

He was preceded in death by his father: Steve Bruhn; grandparents: Jane and Claude Bruhn and Margie and Duane Schwandt; and cousin: Aaron Albright.
