Curtis A. "Curt" Mahle, loving father, beloved son and brother, treasured family member, loyal friend, talented artist and everyone's funny man, died suddenly of heart failure on March 28, 2016, in his hometown of Bellingham, WA, at age 52. He was an intelligent, creative, and exceptionally gifted man. Curt spent the bulk of his career as exhibits preparator for the Whatcom Museum. He was especially proud of his role in creating the interactive play area for the Children's Museum. Curt was hilarious! His kooky celebrity impressions and goofy accents were sidesplitting. If you found yourself in his company you were smiling immediately and laughing in minutes. It was impossible to have a rainy day around Curt. The stars in his sky were his three children and three grandchildren. He cherished them and was very committed to their wellbeing. He shared his love for the outdoors with family and friends, but his passion was fishing. Anytime he took a trip he always made it a point to stop and fish along the route. The wake left in his absence will ripple forever in our hearts. He will be deeply missed. Curt was born in Topeka, KS, to surviving Claire L. Adrienne (Kirkpatrick) and late Henry O. Mahle. Surviving are former spouse and best friend, Brenda Hardwick, daughter, Amber Mahle, son, Tony Mahle, daughter, Holly Berner, grandchildren, Brooklyn Mahle, and Madison and Joshua Lewis, sisters, Amy Anderson (Jon) and Christie Bell (Marty), nieces, Paige Anderson (Pete Sabori) and Olivia Keith. Family and friends will gather for a memorial celebration at the Fairhaven Pavilion, 107 Chuckanut Dr N, on April 24, 2016, at 5:00PM, potluck immediately following.
