Kottke Trucking is saddened to announce the passing of Duane Kottke

We are saddened to pass along the news that our father, Duane Kottke, has passed away. He was an amazing man and he will be missed by not only the Kottke family, but, we know he will also be missed immensely by the Kottke Trucking family, too.

Duane was the second generation owner of Kottke Trucking and he along with his wife Connie installed the values that are company has today. This company would not be the way it is today without him. His fingerprints are on everything that this company does and will forever do.

Duane was very proud of this company and proud of our employees. The joke used to be that the Kottke family was the biggest in Buffalo Lake with all our employees and now our family has grown to multiple cities around the country. He was so proud of this company and what we have all built here together.

Memorial Service for Duane Kottke will be held Thursday, October 5, 2017, at 11:00 AM at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Buffalo Lake, with interment in the Buffalo Lake City Cemetery.

Gathering of family and friends for Duane will be held Wednesday, October 4, 2017, from 4:00-8:00 PM at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Buffalo Lake, and will continue Thursday at 10:00 AM, for one hour prior to the service, all at the church.

Duane would want us to keep trucking and that is what we are going to do. Thank you for your love, support and dedication. It means the world to us.

The Kottke Family
