Thank you for keeping a bag of notes, movie tickets, receipts etc… that you've held on to and collected for all these years - I didn't do these things… but I'm glad you did, because it gave me a smile going through it all again.
Thank you for asking me to marry you
Thank you for helping make these 2 beautiful children we have
Thank you for all the back rubs

I am at a lose for words on what Kurt meant to his father and I. He was a sweet little boy that loved all animals.

He scared us half to death when he jumped from the swing in the backyard and went head first into the wood fence post. He was black and blue for months, we were afraid to take him out in public for fear someone would think we abused him.

He grew into an amazing young man who served his county and went to Afghanistan for 18 months, that was the longest 18 months of his families life. He came home safely and got a BA at ASU. We were so proud of him, first Wynn to go to college and get a degree.

My heart aches for Katie and kids and everyone else that knew him. He had such a gentle sole and would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it.

Your father and I love you so much and will miss you each and every day. Rest in peace sweetheart.

Kurt was, to say the least, never the loudest guy in our little band of adventurers who go to festivals and parties and brunch together. He was the one holding it down - driving the truck, minding the stroller, keeping watch of where his kids were, giving Katie a cuddle, keeping the in-jokes rolling once they inevitably started.

My icon for him in my contacts list was a jacked-up pink unicorn-centaur, for reasons I can't begin to explain. I wish we'd all had more funny group texts, and days stomping around in the sun on some grassy field eating disgusting fair food and saying 'Huzzah!' a lot. So much has been taken away in the past year, but with a man like Kurt, you don't always grasp how much of a pillar he was for others, doing his thing without fuss, and allowing so many other lives to flow and thrive in the strength and space he offered.

Kurt's gentle strength, his reliable presence, his myriad practical skills, his willingness to use his powers for the good of both himself and others, his beautiful skin art, his constant availability for his family, and a vision of him standing tall, bearded and handsome with one of his tiny blond kids in his arms, the sun on his face, smiling wide, his dark eyes all crinkled up with laughter... Those are the memories of him that I'll keep alive all my days. Hope to have lots more chances to share with Jax and Olivia memories of how great their dad was and how much I appreciated having him as a friend.

Some of my fondest memories of Kurt are when he bamboozled me into helping him build a paver patio and outdoor fire pit with him. I swore I thought the suspension on my truck was going to explode with the pallet of pavers in the back of it. We spent all day working and laughing and having a good time. My back still hurts. Maybe it was when I came over to his place and spent a day building a large jungle gym for the kids? Perhaps it was the barbecues and football days or times yukking it up at the Renaissance Festival? They were all the best times and I am going to miss my friend. I already do. Gone too soon but will never be forgotten.

We used to live in the same neighborhood. I had an old lawnmower that would never start in the spring. I would text Katie and ask her if I could borrow her husband. Kurt would come over, we would talk and catch up for a little while and he would start my lawnmower. He never once gave me a hard time about not being able to do it myself. I think he even made it seem like it was hard to start so I wouldn’t feel weak. Kurt was always a gentle and kind guy. So many great memories. Such an immense loss. ❤️💔

I remember when our boys were both in kindergarten, and all of our families from our little classroom group were together for play dates and parties. Kurt was always there, smiling and happy. He dressed up silly for our daughter’s birthday/Halloween party and played with the kids. I wish we could go back to those times when he was still here.

Words cannot express how very sorry we are for your loss. We are absolutely heartbroken for your family. Wishing you peace and comfort in all of the wonderful memories that you have of Kurt and the difference that he made in people’s lives for the time that he was here. With Love and Deepest Sympathies, The Pavoni Family
