Kurt enjoyed fishing, being around a bonfire, and cooking for his family and friends. He loved all animals and was known to bring home random animals as pets until he was made to put them back outside. He also had a great sense of humor and enjoyed pulling a prank or two. Kurt worked construction, was a chef, but overall, he was a family man. He will be greatly missed by all of his family and friends.
