Kenneth Brian Strunk

August 18, 1961 ~ June 4, 2021 (age 59)


Kenneth Brian Strunk, 59, of Maumelle passed from this life on June 4, 2021 at his home. He was born August 18, 1961 in Chicago, Illinois to the late Maurice and Anna Mae (Riley) Strunk. Mr. Strunk proudly served his country in the United States Army for more than twenty years, seven of which were spent in foreign service abroad. He loved motorcycles, NASCAR, rock music and his dogs. He enjoyed being outdoors or in his garage “putzing” around. Kenneth will always be remembered as a loving husband, father, grandfather, brother and friend. His heart was pure and his love was genuine, traits that are not easily replaced. In addition to his parents, a sister, Patricia Jensen, preceded Kenneth in death.

Survivors include his loving and devoted wife of more than thirty-nine years, Dawn Blair Strunk; children, Jamie (Michael) Cottrill of Maumelle, Kalen (Fantasia) Strunk of New Mexico; grandchildren, Jakob Goldberg, Kaylie Cottrill, Michael Cottrill III, Zoey Strunk and Hannah Strunk. Other survivors include siblings, Michael (Linda) Strunk of California, Leslie Thomas of Colorado, Thomas Strunk of Florida and Betsy (Gilbert) Vasquez of Colorado; along with a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.

A celebration of Kenneth’s life will be at 12:00pm, Saturday, June 12, 2021 at Grace Church in East End with Pastor Tommy Jones officiating.

In lieu of flowers memorials may be made to the Wounded Warrior Project.
