    Debbie, our love goes out to you for your loss. Curt and I were wannabe drivers in junior high school and detailed many a car together. Of course this included much test driving during our detailing. It was so much fun to reminisce during our class reunions. He was such a good guy and many of our classmates have commented on it. Sally and I hope that you can take comfort from the love of your family and the happy memories of your life together.

    Debbie, we are so sorry. Curt was a good friend and neighbor to us. I loved his stories and him sitting on the tailgate having a beer, laughing and joking. He will be missed.

    So sorry for you loss, Curt was a great guy.  Met him in Jr High and found out my parents were friends with his parents.  Had some fun times with Curt in Jr High.  Last seen him at the Labor Day Parade in 2018,we had a golf cart incident. He talked a lot about his family and it was fun to catch up on our years at RIHS class of 1961.  He will be missed by many.  Our thoughts and prayers are with your family  Judy and Randy
