Baron Dennis Strunk, 74, of Shillington, Pennsylvania, passed away at his home Wednesday January 26, 2022. He was born in the Reading Hospital. Barry, as he was known to his family and friends, was the son of Robert S. and Catherine B. (Stoner) Strunk.

He graduated from Gov. Mifflin Senior High’s Class of 1965.
