Curt was my Bud! We did a many a Breakfast and lunch together. Some days he would call me when I worked for him, and I would think, Oh Boy, what have I done, and he would just be calling to see where I was. Said, he was thinking of me...That meant a lot to me. He was kinda like a substitute Dad for me, after I lost my Dad. I always stopped by and checked on my Bud when I drove by. He will be missed.
