I met Curtis at Shine in Boulder, working alongside him as one of the line cooks. He was among those who made me feel welcome and included. I was fortunate to call Curtis my coworker and friend. My sympathies go out to his family, he was a joy to be around. He will be missed.

Curtis, I will sure miss having our wonderful talks. I was such a lucky Grandma to have such a wonderful Grandson that was so loving!! You and I had a special bond that started when you came to Minnesota and we had a few weeks together. I also loved it when you came to Arizona to be with me for Christmas. Thank you for so many special times!! I love you and you will always be in my prayers! Grandma Suttle

We are so deeply sad to learn of Curtis' death. What a tragedy for everyone. Curtis was a close friend of our Son, Ben Gass and spent many hours at our home when they were in High School. I remember his warm smile and kindness and how he and Ben and their other friends seemed to really love each other. We are so sorry for your loss. ,

I My Mind's Eye:

You are my sister's huge belly
The newborn that I held for the first time
The big baby sitting next to my first newborn
The little brother, racing to keep up
Stout, bowed legs rushing here and there..
Milk spilt every meal

You are the brilliant flash of eyes
Beautiful, dimpled smile
The one that could speak my name. "Auntie" and break an impenetrable trance

You are the one who stayed with an ailing Grandfather when no one else could
I loved those texts and phone calls when we spoke of life and everything in between

The kitty you loved carries you onward
I wish you grand adventures
I see you in a beautiful, dramatic cloud formation as the sunsets within it
The beauty and grandeur of a breathtaking mountain view
The dazzling presence of a newly blossomed flower
a black and white kitty curled up on a bed
The illusive presence of a mountain lion and her newborn cub, unseen but ominously present

In my mind's eye
You are happy, every desire realized
Your sharp wit, quick smile
Mysterious self in the glory that is and was the Curtis i knew and loved
On wings of flight may you soar to dazzling heights

I met you through your big brother, and from the start I found myself drawn to the very life behind your eyes and smile. Your laughter was intoxicating, and the times we hung out were extremely memorable, even to this day,,, years away.
Sleep, beautiful soul, sleep,, for tomorrow there is no pain.

Oh my dear sweet child

The world was an angled place for you
The paths they zigged and zagged
While you slid from edge to edge how could your path be true?

Oh my beautiful young man

The world swung crazily for you
Like standing on the deck of a ship heaving in a storm
You lived first to the stars, then down to the depths, up to a the sun in a sky so blue

Oh my precious complicated soul

A dazzling light from somewhere else shone through you
Like a bright bright beam, when you were on you lit the room! When you were off, you were far far off
And life's harsh gaze in you found, someone to chew and chew

Oh my loved lost man

Set down your sorrow and your pain and like the Phoenix

Curtis was my little brother and much more. He was full of life and love, growing up with him was full of adventure. He grew into an amazing chef and inspired me to do the same. We often got together to cook dinner for a number of friends and family. We shared a passion for cooking for, and pleasing others through our food. I have been overly saddened by this situation but will always cherish all the time I had with Curtis. There is so much to say about Curtis, but I will keep it short and say that he was a beautiful, loving, caring, generous man who gave more than necessary. Also hardly ever expected anything in return for his kindness and generosity. I along with my family and many more will forever miss you Curtis. You are now at peace so until we meet again my loving Brother. I love you forever ❤

Now I write to you a farewell. I am so very proud of the person you became. You have been my son, my friend, my pride and joy. You were always there for me, always that sweet, loving, thoughtful Curtis. I will forever have your love, your spirit, your essence in my heart.

Remembering your deep blue sparkling eyes, your humor, beautiful smile and that certain "rascally" cleaver fun attitude still brings a joyful feeling to me, a gentle giggle, followed by some tears. Oh how I will miss you. I will miss how we used to say the same thing at the same time, then laugh together, realizing how much we thought and felt the same thing, the same way.

I will always hold dear the many beautiful things you brought into my life. We so often confided in each other. Spoke of everything, the silly, the serious and the mystery of life. I have been so blessed to have had you in this life. I will giggle with you again.

You are the light, you always have been but now you are free to spread it far and wide. You have touched so many already.... Go with all the love you have, soar beyond and keep giving. I love you forever. Mom
