Memorial fund for Mike Struck established


MANKATO, Minn. – Co-workers of Mike Struck have established a memorial fund in his name to help fund the education of his children Kaylee, 6 and Gavin, 4.


Struck, 39, was the Minnesota Department of Transportation maintenance worker whose backhoe was swept into the Minnesota River shortly before noon Tuesday, March 22. Struck, a nine-year employee with the department, was clearing debris near Seven Mile Creek on Highway 169 between Mankato and St. Peter when his backhoe was apparently pulled into the flood waters.
