    Kurt was an amazing guy. I had the pleasure of getting to cut his hair on and off over the past 6-7 years. The way he spoke so highly of his family was so heartwarming. He would just light up when talking about fishing. He will truly be missed and I’m so very sorry for his loss... to family, friends, and anyone who knew him. My deepest condolences. R.I.P. Kurt and shine your light on us.

    Kurt came into my thoughts on Saturday. I was at Rouses on 42 and saw a white GMC...He was only in my life for a short time, but it didn’t take me long to realize what an amazing person he was. My thoughts are with his friends and family. I can’t imagine the grief you all must be feeling. He will surely be missed.

    To Kurt’s Father, Mother and Family, Kurt always expressed the love he cherished and had for you; a great respected love indeed. The magnitude of this kind of love was of perfection and action. Since the knowledge of the loss of your precious son and loved one, our condolences and prayers of comfort, peace and understanding are lifted up daily. We here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast adored him dearly. We will continue to pray and ask our Lord Jesus to renew your minds and build your strengths one second at a time, minute by minute, hours to days, days to months and months to years. Scripture tells us to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord. In the bosom of Jesus, Kurt is resting in peace. We thank God for time in prayers and scriptures spent with him. This massive change in your lives is a heavy burden to carry alone. We pray your family will lean into Jesus for in your weakness, He is strong. We will forever remember Kurt’s joy and his high energy; but most of all, his presence had a spiritual energy that engulfed our attention. The impact he had on all of our lives will continue to live on. His smile was filled with love, hope and joy!

    Warmest regards,
    Coastal love ️
    Cheryl, Sam and Jean
