What a wonderful father, husband, grandfather and friend of my best friend and sister Angela. Curt was such a good father figure to me, a lover of my cosmopolitan mixes and and “always ready to enjoy life” character I see in Angela. I will cherish my memories of Curt starting way back from mid 90s when God brought me to know the amazing Oliver family! My deepest condolences but also respect and praise for such a role model to aspire to, which I see everyday in in my living sister Angela! Thanks so much Curt!!! I will miss you!
