Death believed to be of natural causes, not considered suspicious

A Danville man died at the Walnut Creek BART station on Monday morning despite efforts to revive him by bystanders and paramedics, according to BART officials.

BART police responded to reports of a man needing medical attention near a stairway in a paid area of the station at 7:42 a.m., according to BART.

They found two BART patrons performing CPR on the man, identified by the Contra Costa County coroner's bureau as 60-year-old David Struck of Danville.

Paramedics arrived and took over CPR, but Struck died at the scene. It appears Struck died of natural causes and his death is not considered suspicious, according to the coroner's bureau.

Danville and the community lost a real gentleman. I was once Dave Struck’s landlord after a divorce. His primary concerns were to rent a place where his sons would have easy access and feel at home. He also wanted a place with a big enough garage to work on bicycles because he was heavily involved in a volunteer effort to collect old bikes, repair them, and make them available to the needy during the holidays, There were many other charities he was also involved in. Very sad to lose such a fine gentleman at an early age. My heart goes out to his family and friends.

He was such a nice man, who volunteered endless hours for the Danville Little League, and was so well liked. May God bless him and help his family during this difficult time.
