Brustman, Robert (Bob) 8/23/1965 - 3/11/2017 Ann Arbor Robert (Bob) Brustman, 51, died unexpectedly in Ann Arbor, Michigan, on March 11, 2017. Bob was a marketing and communications specialist at the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Michigan. Bob graduated from Irondale High School in Minnesota and earned a BA at the University of Minnesota and an MA at Emerson College in Boston. Bob was a devoted father, husband, and son. His children Zak (16) and Eleanor (13) were his pride and joy. He ran marathons, traveled the world with his family, read, cooked for family and friends, listened to too-loud rock music, and watched obscure horror films. He loved to walk his goofy Black Labrador, Scooby, and scratch his cats Rock-and-Roll Sharptooth and Karli. Bob had a wonderfully twisted sense of humor that he has passed to his children. He is survived by his loving wife Susan Dynarski, a Professor of Economics, Education and Public Policy at University of Michigan, and his children Zachary and Eleanor Brustman. He will be deeply missed by his parents Edward and Susan Brustman of Lino Lakes, Minnesota, his sister and brother-in-law Pamela and Brian Freeman of Oak Grove, Minnesota, many loving cousins, his sisters-in-law Anita and Janet Dynarski, and his nephew Joseph Koshinskie. A memorial service is being planned for later this spring. Bob was outraged by hatred, injustice and prejudice and was particularly horrified by the presidency of Donald Trump. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in his name to the American Civil Liberties Union.
