John W Brungart

Hanuary 8, 1916 - April 23, 2005

John W. Brungart, the first man to dot the “i” in Script Ohio, died April 23, 2005. John played trumpet in the OSUMB 1933 - 1936. He dotted the “i” four times before Director Eugene J. Weigel decided that a tuba would show up better in the stands. Besides being in the OSUMB, John lettered in wrestling. Mr. Brungart had been living in Coshocton, Ohio.

John was a member of the marching band from 1933 through 1936. He was the first person to “dot the 'i'” in Script Ohio.
