Bruce Kuehn

Bruce L. Kuehn, 52, a native of New Hampton, passed away Saturday, May 21, 2016. Per Bruce’s final wishes, no funeral or memorial service is planned.

Bruce Lee Kuehn was born in New Hampton September 6, 1962. He was the youngest child of Clarence John and Arlene Madeline (Boehmer) Kuehn. Bruce graduated from New Hampton High School in 1980. He received his Associate of Applied Science Degree in Tool and Die Making at Hawkeye Community College in Waterloo in 1993. He was a dedicated employee at the TriMark Corporation in New Hampton for over 30 years.

Bruce was no ordinary man. He was a unique and caring individual who touched the lives of all who knew him. The most generous person to everyone he met, when someone asked for his help, he would never turn them down. The kind of man who ordered pizza and baked chocolate chip cookies for his sister and her children whenever they drove four hours to visit him.
