Tony was born September 21, 1951 in Kansas City Kansas, of which he often spoke about being the Year of The Flood. As a lifelong resident, he was raised in Kansas City, Kanas as well, graduating from Wyandotte High School in 1967. After graduation, Tony went to work for the State Highway Department, eventually becoming the Supervisor for Road Maintenance. He eventually left the Highway Department, and went to work as a Machinist for The Kansas City Star, which he did for 23 years until his recent retirement.

He will be remembered for his sense of humor, and the little jokes he liked to play on people. Tony enjoyed collecting eagles, and spending as much time as he could with his grandchildren. Tony was especially fond of his Classic 1949 Chevy Fleetline, which he took to many car shows, and was often seen cruising in or tinkering on.

He was preceded in death by his parents, George I. Brunsky and Lorene (Benton) Brunsky.

Left to mourn his passing is his wife of 45 Years, Pauline Brunsky; 2 children, Larry Brunsky and his wife Laura, and Karen Brunsky; 2 grandchildren, Lauren Brunsky and Ivan Brunsky; his brother, George Michael Brunsky; and his sister, Laurie Brunsky.

Sorry for the loss of Tony. He was a good guy and had a good sense of humor - laughed a lot and always caring. Heaven received another angel. God bless.

Tony was a very special man, I read the obit; and I can not recall any "LITTLE" jokes on people, I remember a great deal of "BIG" jokes on people. Tony and my brother Jim were best friends since grade school, and "the guys" ( a few of my brothers friends from school) would play baseball and football in our back yard, and after their games they would come in the house, and eat a lot of the groceries mom had just bought, lots of ham sandwiches...….Tony had a laugh that was extremely contagious. Mom and dad always considered Tony 1 of the family. So Tony RIP, I know you are STILL smiling !

We were neighbors of Tony and Pualine and always liked Tony, he was good people, I'm sad that I didn't get a chance to stop by and see them when l went back up to KC, most times I was up and back and didn't have much time sad to say most times it was for funerals. He will be sorely missed.😖
