Kurt was an architect and was hired by ADA Architecture Firm in 1994 and became a partner in 1998 in Lakewood, Ohio, and was the Director of Design and Vice-President. He was a member at St. Jude Church in Elyria. Kurt will also be remembered as a true outdoorsman who loved hunting, snowmobiling and camping.
Kurt's true love was his family and just recently became semi-retired to spend more time with them. He was active with Cub Scout Troop # 133 and Boys Scout Troop # 107 where his son Jacob received his status of Eagle Scout. Kurt also coached his daughter Melody in track at St. Jude and was very proud of her accomplishments. We celebrate the fact that he is now in the arms of his Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
