Kurt was kind, loyal and funny. He confronted his challenge of MS with grace. We were part of a cohort of new leaders in the California Nurses Association. His insistence of a well funded union for nurses was foundational to the modern CNA/NNU that exists today. Rest in Peace friend.

Kurt and I went to nursing together and both ended up starting our careers at Oakland Kaiser. I remember Kurt as a strong patient advocate, a voice for those who were too sick or powerless to speak for themselves and an all around good guy.
