Kurt was one of a kind. We worked in the WTC together for many years. Always enjoyed our coffee breaks on the concourse. Thankfully we kept in touch throughout the years. My dear friend, I will miss our lively chats and serious discussions...
One of the good guys...always a gentleman.
Rest in the sweetest peace with your beloved son Kurt Paul.

I had the honor and pleasure of working with Kurt on the PAPD. He was a great guy - an easy going and gentle man who went out of his way to help anyone in need. He was always approachable, friendly and professional. This is another great loss for the job and may he rest in peace. He left his mark with his friends.
