    You have my sympathy. Curt was a High School classmate of mine. I was hoping he was going to be at our Class reunion in August.

      He had so many stories from his youth. We would love to hear what you remember of our father at that age.

    Deepest condolences to the family and friends of Curt. It is true he was a great story teller and I have spent many years listening to his stories. I have fond memories of Curt and often think of him when something reminds me of one of his jokes.
    Beyond his funny side Curt was very proud of his family. He spoke about his kids often and was always excited to spend weekends with his grandchildren.
    He will be missed

    I never met Curt but i’ve had the privilege of working with one of his kids. I’m purposefully being vague but his kid is one of the most genuine people i’ve met and i think that says something about him.
