Those who saw Kurt at our class reunion may remember that he looked fine. We left early because he was in a great deal of pain that he thought was just a backache from working around the yard. After a few weeks of doctor appoints and unsuccessful "treatment", he was diagonised with stage four bone cancer, which is very aggressive and painful.

One round of chemo was all it took to determine that treatment was not viable.Kurt remained at home, with pain meds administered by his wife Sandy every two hours (day and night), their son Cliff, and me giving her breaks. This came to an end last Friday, when he was admitted to the hospital for a scan that showed the cancer had spread everywhere. He passed away the next day, October 21.

There will be a funeral ceremony for immediate family this week. There will be a Celebration of Life ceremony for friends within the next several weeks. Of course fellow Vikings are invited, details will be provided through this website.

Kurt was my closest friend for over 50 years and he will be greatly missed. Highlights of his full life will be provided at a later date, as his son and wife want to contribute.

I remember Kurt very well from our class of 67.  I knew Kurt back then because we were both part of Vince Adelman's 66-67 cross country team. Kurt was a Varsity runner then and he was pretty darn good. I was a member of the J.V. team at the time. I am really saddened to hear of his passing, and really wished I could have made it to the last reunion to see him again. Rest in Peace Kurt....Steve Earney
