Steven D. Runck, 62, Horace, ND, died Monday, Nov. 12, 2018, in his home.

Steven Douglas Runck, the son of Robert J. and Cleone (Nybeck) Runck, was born in Fargo, ND, on December 8, 1955. He grew up and received his education in Casselton, ND, where he graduated from Central Cass High School in 1974. He graduated from Moorhead (MN) State University in 1979 with a music education degree and enjoyed playing trombone in jazz band and touring with Continental Singers. He also attended Moorhead Area Vocational Technical Institute, in electrical engineering.

On September 27, 1980, Steve married Christine M. Andersen, at Bethel Evangelical Free Church, Fargo, ND. Initially, they made their home in Moorhead, then moved to Fargo, before building their new home in Horace, in 1998.

In 1978, Steve joined the staff of KFNW Radio in Fargo and was known throughout the region for his "Davy Duck" impressions and performing in the area radio rallies. In 2008, he became a software support person at Allegiance Software, Fargo, and then for Icon Systems.

Throughout his life, music was an essential part of his world. He enjoyed playing bass guitar on the Bethel worship team, traveling with a mission team to Italy for outdoor evangelistic concerts, and playing with a group of friends in a band called Destiny. He also used his computer talents and radio background to help install computer systems and programs for a radio station in Haiti.
