Father Brungardt was born in 1875 in the Volga Region. He studied at the Saratov Seminary and was ordained in 1898. From then to 1901, he served the parish of Mariental. In 1903 he went to serve in Marienberg, and in 1905 to Streckerau. He also served Husaren from 1909 to 1910, Volmer from 1910 to 1920, Pfeifer from 1920 to 1928, and went to Hildmann in 1928. He was arrested in 1930, but was not convicted. Five years later, he was arrested again and brought to Odessa where he was imprisoned. It is likely that he died in prison there.
