Kurt enjoyed his family. He loved God’s blessings of the outdoors; walking the woods and ditches hunting for morel mushrooms and asparagus which he graciously shared with his family and friends. He also enjoyed welding at home making crosses for special gifts. He loved the Renaissance and enjoyed being ‘Hook’ dressed in his pirate attire, which included his handmade hook. He so looked forward to Halloween and all the kids which visited him. However, there was nothing he loved more than spending time with his son Malachi. Which was usually spent outdoors, at the Renaissance, watching movies, building Legos and going to church.
