Deepest sympathies to Dakota and the rest of the Durk family. We drove Dakota's bus for a while and are originally from Payson. Mr. Durk was a nice man.

I was saddened to hear of your families loss. I met Mike when I was a teenager helping tear down the dodge-um-car carnival ride in downtown Quincy. Big Mike would reach down and break loose the heavy floor plates, the rest of us would carry the to the truck. We became friends during that short job and ran into each other occasionally. I got to visit with him more when he was tending bar at Bob & Sarge's. I know the thoughts and prayers of many are with you in this time of sorrow.
