Dennis Lee Kohrt, son of Agnes P. (Olson) Kohrt, was born June 26, 1942 in Inwood, Iowa. He grew up in Inwood and graduated from Inwood High School in 1960. On November 12, 1960 Denny was united in marriage with Karen De Vries. To this union, three children were born; Terry, Susan and Paula. The couple divorced in 1987. Denny was a member of the United Sates Naval Reserve from 1959-1962. He worked as an auto body repairman for Van’t Huls and later opened, owned, and operated Kohrt’s Body Shop.
Denny was a man with many talents. In addition to his auto body talent, he could repair framework, air conditioners, and brakes. He also could do wheel alignments, painting, welding, glass cutting, carpentry, plumbing, and heating, and the list goes on and on. He was thankful for the talents the Lord blessed him with. Denny was very laid back and always enjoyed trying to learn something new. He liked to fish, play cards, ride motorcycles, travel, and attend flea markets, sales and rummages. He was an especially good billiards player; a hobby he shared with his children. All in all, Denny was very blessed with family and good friends. He will be missed by all those that knew him.
Denny is survived by his three children, Terry Kohrt of Lennox, South Dakota, Susan Doherty of Inwood, and Paula Kohrt (David Sommer) of Yorktown, Virginia; and three grandchildren, Derek Kohrt, Taylor Sommer-Kohrt, and Kylie Sommer-Kohrt.
He was preceded in death by his grandmother, Pearl Craft Olson; mother, Agnes Kohrt; sister, Diana Miller; uncle Merrill Olson; and brother-in-law, Russell Miller.
