Thank you for your entries into the Legacy guest book. Kurt died exactly one year ago on a day much like today. (rainy) It is hard to grasp that a year has passed because the events are still so vivid. I think about my brother all the time. I appreciate the words about his life. Your thoughtful entries help us to know him better.
My heartfelt condolences to Kurt's family and friends - I was staggered to hear of his passing. I served in the Navy with Kurt in the 1970s when he was assigned to Light Photographic Squadron SIXTY-THREE Det 5 at NAS Miramar in San Diego, CA. I recall his enthusiasm and ambition to be a SEAL. Even though I never saw him again once he left for his training, I am proud to have served with him and of his success in life. I held the highest regard and respect for Kurt. Again, please accept my sincere sympathy.
I was more than shocked to see this notice appear when I typed Kurt's name into Google this evening. I served with Kurt on board the USS Constellation. We were Photographers. He had amazing ambition back then. He surprised all of us when he announced that he was going to SEAL training. He persuaded me join 3 book of the month clubs back then so as keep my brain stimulated while we were at sea. Somehow exercising with Kurt was a test he always got us to push ourselves to the next level.After he joined the SEALS (1973)or so, we never saw each other again until I ran into him in Palo Alto in 2001 or thereabouts . It was really a treat to hear about all that he had accomplished,it also came as no surprise,he was a driven individual. He was a good man.
Erik, Sophie and Eileen-- I knew Kurt for over 20 years as a client. Since he worked at GoPro, he became a client again, and we also became friends. Erik and Sophie, your dad loved you both, and Erik, your dad and I discussed your baseball career. He was very proud of what you accomplished and your earning a scholarship. Eileen, I know he appreciated your love and support.
My condolences to all of you. We will all miss him.
