Kurt’s interests were as wide and varied as his charismatic personality and included playing basketball, slo pitch softball, snowmobiling, a brief stint at hockey, hunting, fishing, golfing, UTV trips, fantasy football, statistics of any sort, outer space, gardening, rock hounding, “stirring the pot”, being the master of nicknames, the list is endless…
Most importantly, Kurt deeply loved and was so very proud of his sons and grandchildren and supported them in any dreams and endeavors that they chose.
