Ross G. Bruening

February 8, 1983 — May 29, 2021

Ross G. Bruening, AKA Ross the Boss, AKA Saucy Rossy from Mount Carmel, Iowa passed away peacefully at his home in Omaha, NE on Saturday, May 29, 2021 at the age of 38 with his wife and sons by his side.



Ross is survived by his wife, Allie and two children, Gus (4) and Hank (2). He is also survived by his dad, Wayne Bruening, his brother, Ryan, and sister, Chelsea. In addition to his immediate family, Ross leaves behind an incredible extended family, many friends and close coworkers. He is preceded in death by his mother, Jane (Berger) Bruening, and his grandparents.



Ross loved his beautiful wife, amazing kids and his best friends. He loved tailgating for Husker football games and attending Creighton basketball games. He enjoyed golfing, basset hounds, Happy socks, fishing, summer sausage and buttered buns (which he passed onto Hank). Ross’s favorite date nights were going to movies with Allie, especially enjoying superhero Marvel movies and Eric Church concerts.



Despite his fraternity brother past, his last few years he was known for being quite the Disney enthusiast. He took great pride in growing the best yard in his neighborhood. Ross was the best grill master and loved to host family BBQs. He loved going to Gus’ sporting events and took great pride in his natural athletic ability. He did have lots of “allergies” including social media, chicken and all vegetables (except for mashed potatoes which he considered “not a vegetable.”)



Despite multiple rounds of chemo and several major surgeries, the doctors were unable to determine whether the cause of death was his cancer diagnosis or the outcome of recent Husker football seasons. In lieu of flowers, please, please pray for a winning season, a Husker appearance at a New Year’s day bowl game OR a donation to Gus and Hank’s Educational Fund. Any of these would bring Ross great joy.



We are certain that Ross is forever partners with the Black Panther, Chadwick Bozeman, fighting hard against bad guys and colon cancer.
