In Memory of LeRoy Armbruster

LeRoy Joseph Armbruster, age 88, of Hudson, WI passed away peacefully on February 7th. Roy was born July 12, 1932 in River Falls, WI.  He graduated from River Falls High School in 1950.  He was united in marriage to Donna Peters, his high school sweetheart, on November 22, 1952. They had four children.

Roy owned and operated Roy’s Barbershop in So. St. Paul until he retired in the mid-nineties.   He next took a small engine repair class at WITC, and eventually became Hudson’s “that lawnmower guy across from the park.”

A celebration of life will be announced and held at a later date.

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • Leroy and my husband Roger (deceased) were Army buddies in Germany a long time ago. The. 4 of us would get together to play the cards or go dancing. They were such special people and I will miss them both. Rest in peace and dance forever in Heaven.

    • Leroy and Donna were very special family friends when I was growing up. This feels like the end of an era. Donna was so kind. Leroy was the MOST fun to dance with. I will never forget them. Sending love and prayers.

    • Roy and Donna were always a pleasure to be around. Positive, energetic and fun. Very sorry for Dale, Dennis and Diane on a very difficult past year.

    • So Roy and Donna are together again. That’s not so bad. They were a great couple. A joy to talk to. A true love story right to the end.
      My sympathy to the family. You were so lucky to have such great parents.

    • So very sorry to hear this news. I’m Sylvester (Syl) Schmitz’s daughter. When in town to visit, my dad always took me to see your parents. I don’t need to tell you how wonderful they were. I’m grateful that I met them and got to know them. Prayers for your family and deepest sympathies for your loss.

    • Our sympathy to the Armbruster Family. A wonderful cousin who we got to know in the past few years, loved our visits with Leroy and Donna, just great people. May you rest in peace and may you and Donna enjoy a Great Wall together.

    • Always enjoyed visiting with Roy at Dennis’s gathering.
      Thoughts and prayers for the families. May you find peace

    • I have the fondest memories of Roy teaching me how to dance!!! Waltz, polka, two-step, schottische, he knew them all and was so graceful as he guided me around the floor. He was such a good instructor; laughing the whole while. He will be missed.
