Our dearest Curt,
Thank-you for sharing your time and family with us for more than
40 years. Remember all the Friday night PIZZA nights and the countless hours on the Snow Hill Ball Fields and especially your team the Chipmunks. You made a big impression on all those young girls. There are so many wonderful things we did and times that we spent together one book would could never hold all the love that goes with each memory and hour. I want to tell you thanks for sharing Niffany with me. You know she's a lot like you Curt so you should be really proud. From that little spit fire of a kindergartener to a beautiful young lady and mother,thank-you, Curt and Darleene.
We will always love and miss that brilliant smile.

I will always remember Curt as the one who always had a smile and was ready to enjoy spending time with those around him. I have so many memories of my sweet Uncle Curt when we would visit, from hanging out watching football, watching "It's a Wonderful Life" on Thanksgiving before drifting into our food naps, playing games, and just chatting about all of the things going on in our lives. He loved everyone around him, but when you talked with him, he was truly interested in investing in you and listening and learning about your life. He was so genuinely kind, that you couldn't help but love talking with him. When I had my son, Alex, he was the first baby in the family, and some of my favorite memories were of Curt sitting on the floor playing trains or cars with Alex. He would let Alex climb all over him and Curt would listen to Alex ramble on and on about his trains. I know this carried over to how incredibly deeply he adored his grandbabies! They were all amazing to Curt, and he was so proud when he was able to share stories about all of the wonderful things they were doing. And when it came to his girls, Darlene, Kim and Tiff, he couldn't have loved you any more than he did! You were the lights of his life, and I will always remember the pride he showed and the joy he felt when he was with you guys. So many wonderful memories of this kind-hearted, sweet, giving and loving man....I am blessed to have known him and been a part of his family, and Curt, you will be so deeply missed, but we know we'll see you again soon. I know you'll be watching over your family from Heaven, and thank you for the fantastic life you lived. I love you, Jen

I loved working with Curt until I retired. His hobby of getting people anger kept the heat off the rest of us. The another thing I remember about Curt is how much he cared for his daughters.

Curt was the best. The first time I met him was when I got to the bar and he was telling construction workers what they could and could not do. At first I thought he was a supervisor over construction, then found out he was in operations LOL. It’s getting to where there are so many wonderful people leaving us for a better place, loved him like a brother.. May God help his family with an understanding that he is with him now.

I have known Curt since we both were at Clinton High School. I can truthfully say that he was a good friend and he had the same personality from then until now. I will always remember his smile and laid back attitude. I never saw him upset and he always had something nice to say. After school we lost track of each other until I hired into TVA in Operations and ran into him at the training center. We both ended up at Watts Bar Nuclear. Rest In Peace my friend, I will miss you.

I am so sad to hear about Curt. He is truly one of the best people I have ever known. Some of the best times in my life were spending time with him and Darlene.
God bless you Darlene, Kim, and Tiffany, and your entire family.
