Obituary for John E. Struck, Jr

June 10, 1942 - May 30, 2015
Indianapolis, Indiana | Age 72


John E. Struck, Jr., 72, of Carmel, passed away May 30, 2015, after a quick but courageous battle with IPF. He was born June 10, 1942, in Columbus, Georgia, to the late John E. Struck, Sr., and Jane Cullum Struck. Growing up in Savannah, Georgia, he graduated from Benedictine Military School in 1960, and attended Armstrong Junior College and Georgia Southern College before beginning his professional career with Continental Can Company. He and his family relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1968, where he was a manufacturing representative for Blake and Johnson before moving to the Indianapolis area in 1976 and becoming co-owner of Pro-Tech Sales in 1977.

He was a long-time active member of Woodland Country Club and on its Board of Directors, in Carmel, where he resided for 38 years. He was also active in his "GAWD" golf group in Indianapolis, as well as Broad Ripple Sertoma, and was a big supporter of Little Sisters of the Poor. He loved his family, especially his grandkids, his many friends and his dog, Savannah. He enjoyed making people laugh and was an avid lover of all things sportā€”PGA, Colts, Pacers and UGA Bulldawgs.

He will be deeply missed by his wife, Jacqueline; daughter Elizabeth (Joel) Williams, of Cincinnati; son Scott E. (Paula) Struck, of Carmel; daughter Tiffany (Josh) Smith, of Cincinnati; sister Jane Ellen Struck, of Savannah; and grandchildren Mei-Lin, Audrey, Caroline and Sawyer.
