    Curt was a 'salt of the earth' guy, who will be missed by all who have known him, the kind of person you wish was in your life longer. He was a considerate person, who liked to 'do things right' as best he knew how, ready to help others, and would never want to do what might make life more difficult for someone else. He showed great dedication keeping the grounds of Trinity Pentecostal Church looking good; summer and winter he was out shovelling, plowing, mowing, trimming, even when he had worked all week.
    Our consolation, Curt, is that you are now with Terri, whom you loved and cared for, and Jesus, the best lover of all.  We know you wouldn't want to be back here now, for anything.  So we weep for ourselves and others you left behind, not for you, and we pray that as many of us as possible will later be joining you in that land where there's no more night.

    I knew Curt from Trinity Church. He was always helping with the yard work, all summer and all winter. He made sure the church looked superb.
    He liked to talk about his books and would even share them if we were interested enough. 
    Curt was a generous man. He will be missed.

    May I offer my sincerest condolences to Curt's family and friends...he was a good man! I always enjoyed working with him and the discussions we had on the worlds issues when we worked together. May he find eternal peace and happiness at the right side of his God in heaven.

    I was stunned today to learn about Curt's passing. I spent a lot of my teenage years hanging out with him. I gradually lost touch with him due to work and school, but I never forgot him. He had a great sense of humour and a curious mind and he was one of the hardest working people I've ever known. 
    He will be in my thoughts and prayers forever. Rest in peace friend.
