Will Kent DeBruler, 57, of Connersville, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, December 20, 2020 at Reid Health of Richmond, where he had been a patient for two weeks.
He was born in New Castle, Indiana on January 28, 1963, one of three sons of Willard and Velma Knorpp DeBruler. He attended school in Centerville.
