I am so sorry about your loss
Kurt was a great guy. Played pool with Charlie, Bowled with us. We always had a good time with him. May the family find peace and may he RIP!!!
My heart goes out to the whole family. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you 🙏
Maggie and Shirley, so sorry to see this in the paper. May God comfort you during this difficult time. We have known Larry, Shirley, and Kurt most of his life. My mom babysat Kurt when he was small while his parents worked and I would watch Kurt in the evenings while his parents went out. Kurt and I ate a lot of popcorn when I would babysit him. And then years later, I had Maggie as a preschool student at St. Paul Preschool. Please except my condolences and know that I am thinking about your family and reminiscing about Kurt as he was growing up. May you look to God for peace and comfort during the next few days and months.
So sorry to hear of Kurt's passing. He was a good friend and have some great memories of bowling tourneys with him. Rest in peace buddy. Vaughn W.
