Published 9:59 am Wednesday, December 9, 2015
Brandon Donald Tune, 35, of Waseca died accidentally Monday, Dec. 7, 2015, at his home.
He was born June 4, 1980, in Rochester, the son of Donald and Ginger (Finne) Tune. He graduated Faribault High School in 1999. He attended truck driving school in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, and earned his commercial driver’s license. Brandon drove truck two seasons at Braun Turf Farms in Farmington. At the age of 21, Brandon purchased his first truck and rebuilt it top to bottom. He worked a summer at Shaw Construction, then delivered portable MRIs to health facilities traveling 48 states. For the past 3 1/2 years he worked for Wayne Transport of Rosemount hauling oil and pulled a pneumatic food grade trailer for bulk sugar.
Brandon was fearless, courageous, determined and a very hard worker. He was generous in helping others no matter what the problem was. He loved April, their dog Snowflake, his truck and his shop that he recently remodeled. Brandon had a God-given talent of truck driving — especially backing up. His dad was his role model when it came to truck driving and he followed in his footsteps. Brandon was an Eagle Scout. He enjoyed boating, tubing and spending time at the cabin.
