  2. Kurt will be missed by many, from the passed and present. We enjoyed working together at Line Creek and had many laughs, mainly on nite shifts and the ride home after a long one. He is now gone on to help repair something much larger than life. RIP Buddy.

    I happen to meet Speta in my office in Ghana where he bought tickets. He was a lovely man and nice to talk to. I only got the information from colleagues from his office in Takoradi. May his soul rest in peace.

  5. So sorry to hear about your Dad’s sudden passing. This is Violet’s cousin. Unfortunately we heard about Kurt’s passing after the services were over otherwise we would have attended.
