Christopher Bruguier, 24, of Lake Andes died Saturday, October 26, 2019 south of Wagner, the result of an automobile accident. Funeral services were Thursday, October 31 at the Marty Community Center. Burial was in the Cedar Presbyterian Cemetery, rural Wagner. Crosby-Jaeger Funeral Home in Wagner was in charge of arrangements.
Chris started school at Marty Indian School for his elementary years and attended Andes Central for his middle school years. After middle school, Chris decided to transfer back to Marty Indian School up until his junior year, when he decided to explore other opportunities.
During his final year at Marty, Chris met a very special friend Jennifer Cournoyer. From this relationship Chris and Jen were gifted with a beautiful daughter Adeline “Addie” Faye Bruguier on April 12, 2016.
Chris lived with his mother in Marty up until age eight when he moved in to help his Grandmother Margaret Horned Eagle and Uncle Mike Horned Eagle in rural Lake Andes. During his short 24 years of life Chris attended welding training at Rtec in Yankton and held numerous jobs around the Lake Andes area. At the time of his sudden passing, Chris pursued a new interest in building trades, working as a laborer on different construction projects where he was praised for being a hard worker and for his one of a kind sense of humor.
Some of Chris’ joys in life were spending time with family, especially his daughter Addie and nephews Tommy, Jared, Wakiyan, Jasten, Briley, and nieces Aaliyah, Ayla, Liv and Raylee, as well as fishing, hunting and anything that allowed him to be in the outdoors.
Chris leaves to mourn his passing daughter Adeline “Addie” Bruguier, Uncle and adopted Dad Mike Horned Eagle, Sister Molina (Hubert) Bruguier, and brother Clancey (Geri) Leroy. Numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, friends and relatives.
Waiting to welcome him home are his Grandparents Seth and Margaret Horned Eagle, parents Adelle Horned Eagle and Eugene Bruguier, along with many other relatives.
