David Robert Breuer

Dec. 26, 1965-June 20, 2013

MISHAWAKA — David Robert Breuer, 47, went to his eternal home to worship his Heavenly Father forever Thursday at King’s Canyon National Park in Fresno, Calif. David died doing what he loved to do best: loving his wife and mentoring his daughters, while experiencing life to the fullest.

David was born Dec. 26, 1965, in Normal, Ill. David was a graduate of Normal Community High School, class of 1984, and obtained his bachelor’s degree in economics from Illinois State University in 1989, where he served as the vice chairman of the Academic Senate.  

On June 25, 1994, he married the former Ms. Linda Sullivan in West Lafayette.

Linda survives, along with their daughters Rachel, Sarah and Amy Breuer, all of Mishawaka. David is also survived by his parents, James and Ruth Breuer of Bloomington, Ill.; his brothers, Kevin (Heather) Breuer of Sycamore, Ill., and Gary (Kelly) Breuer of Aurora, Ill,; his in-laws, John and Jean Sullivan of West Lafayette; and his brothers-in-law, Keith Sullivan of Fairfax, Va. and Kevin Sullivan of San Diego, Calif.

There will be a time of visitation from 3 to 7 p.m. Saturday and one hour prior to the 2:30 p.m. funeral service Sunday at St. Mark Missionary Church, 55240 Bittersweet Road, Mishawaka. The Rev. John Gregory will officiate.

Interment will follow in Chapel Hill Memorial Gardens.

David was a longtime Certified Financial Planner and was currently the managing partner at Guidance Wealth Financial Services in Elkhart.  He was a longtime member of the St. Mark Missionary Church, where he taught Sunday school for adults and middle school teens, was active in small groups as a leader, and along with his wife, Linda, served for many years as the children’s Bible quiz team coach. He and his family were also involved with several mission trips to South America and were planning a mission trip to Europe later this summer.

David was full of life and laughter, and will be remembered for his leadership by example, his outgoing character and his ability to teach through listening and encouragement. His devotion to his family, his faith and those he served as a financial planner, will be forever remembered. David found the time to balance work and home life, and loved traveling, spending time outdoors camping and enjoying the quiet moments at home with his wife and daughters.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to St. Mark Missionary Church Missions Fund or the David Breuer Scholarship Fund at any Teachers Credit Union or by mail to Teachers Credit Union 206 Concord Mall Drive, Elkhart, IN 46517.

Online condolences may be sent to the Breuer family at www.chapelhillmemorial.com.
