Sorry to hear about your father Claude. We just got the news of his passing here in Las Vegas (Orleans Poker Room) yesterday. Speaking for all the dealers Claude (Bugs Bunny) had a great sense of humor and NEVER blamed one dealer if he had a bad beat while playing poker. I guess its no secret he liked his ice cream which he would get at almost the same each and every night. Claude also enjoyed telling jokes or mentioning something odd from the daily news. As I said in the beginning he had a wonderful sense of humor and we will miss having him around the poker room. The Orleans Dealers ( John Hill )

I've hardly known life without Curt, a dear friend and loved one since 1959. So it is with great sadness to hear of his passing. His cheery personality always shined, and the wonderful, light-hearted stories he so often shared always brought smiles to everyone's face. His good memories will forever be with me, and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Rest in Peace, dear friend.
