Dear Aunt Frances, Charlie and Andy,
Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of Uncle Curtis.

I have fond memories of our time together. We built a windmill with my erector set and then he hooked up his miniature steam engine to drive it over 45 years ago. I still have the custom windmill blades that he fabricated. It was fascinating!

Later in life he helped my friends and I with “car problems” and gave us great advice. He was always very happy to assist. 🙂 Good times! Thank you, Uncle Curtis. May you Rest In Peace.

Lucille and Family -

I was so sorry to read about Curtis' passing. He was our neighbor in Eldridge, IA for several years, and I remember chatting with him about our parents, who were all great friends in the '40's & '50's. My parents were David and Violet Park, and I and my younger brother Stanley spent many happy hours at your home while our parents visited. We kids usually ended up in the basement, and you had that wonderful old Victrola record player that we enjoyed! I know Curtis had some rough times, but there were also good times and the fun memories made. My sincere sympathy and love to you and your family.
