Working for Curly was my first real job in high school. He was a good teacher and set a great example with his own hard working spirit. Valuable lessons and experiences I have carried with me since then. Rest in peace.

I have wonderful memories of growing up with you guys on South Center Street. And spending time at your house and being around your parents. I always thought Curly was a funny man. I was always a little bit afraid of him as well 😁. But he was always a funny guy. So sorry for your loss. I know you will miss him greatly. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
