Dennis Kurt Struck, age 86 of Equality, IL passed away on November 15, 2023 peacefully at his home with family by his side. He was born in Minot, ND on March 23, 1937 to the late Kurt and Delta (Wilson) Struck and grew up in Garrison, ND. He is also preceded in death by his only sibling, Meredith. Immediately following graduation from high school, Dennis joined the US Air Force and during his first assignment, met and married Barbara Korbe of Salina, KS on December 23, 1957. She accompanied Dennis around the world during his 27 year Air Force career. Dennis is survived by his daughter Diane Struck of Alexandria, VA; his son David (Kristina) Struck of Castle Rock, CO, and two grandchildren, Dawson Struck and Danielle Struck. Dennis was so proud of his service to this country, serving 27 years on active duty in the US Air Force, retiring as a Chief Master Sergeant and then another 20 years as a federal government employee. He absolutely loved to fish, hunt, travel, and ride his motorcycle. He always had a good story to tell about his fishing and hunting adventures. His greatest passion in recent years was going to the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally and pursuing as many motorcycle trips as possible with his daughter. Neighbors knew he always had the right tool to fix almost everything and that he would go out of his way to help someone in need even though he came across as a grumpy old man. Inurnment will be at a future date at Arlington National Cemetery.
