Few significant details can be found regarding Brouner’s personal life, his family and his character. He was remembered [by George Hansell] as “a man of simple and kindly manners, and greatly beloved both for his own and his work’s sake. He labored faithfully and died ‘with his harness on.’ ” He was a faithful pastor who labored long to care for the flock over which he was made an overseer. [A. C. Wheat says,] “No fear of affliction deterred him from visiting the sick and the dying. In trials he was patient, in counseling the delinquent members of his charge he was forbearing and affectionate." ---Jeff Straub
