Rev. William D. Bruner, LCDR (ChC) USNR(ret.), of Virginia Beach, VA, retired from active ministry in the United Methodist Church after 61 years of faithful ministry. His assignment for over the last ten years at Fairmont Park United Methodist Church, Norfolk, VA, capped a span of six decades that took him to several interesting and challenging places - California, Florida, Virginia, and the Republic of Vietnam, among others. He and his wife Mary have settled into simply enjoying their home and family, after a lifetime of service to our community.
