Not sure what to say?

We have fond memories of the time we spent in Kathmandu with Kurt and Pamela around. The exhibition with photographs on Tharu architecture was unforgettable. We have known the two of you as exemplary global citizens, inspiring others towards the same. We learned a lot from the way you dealt with others, irrespective of their social or cultural background. We were impressed by the love you showed for your projects. We have great appreciation for Pamela for the loving care she gave to Kurt, and...

Kurt was a remarkable man that brought many smiles to our faces. Words seem inadequate to express the impact he has had on the many lives he touched. It was such an honor to get the chance to know him. Kurt will certainly be missed.

With heartfelt condolences,

Pam I am so sorry for the loss of your beloved Kurt. May your memories of the joys and grand adventures you shared sustain you, and the support of your loved ones buoy your journey through grief.

A good architect and a good person. His designs displayed a rare and welcome concern for the user, and celebrated L.A.

My late husband, Ralph Dickson, worked for Kurt for more than 10 years. Ralph was the Project Architect for the San Bernardino County Government Center and the SCAQMD headquarters building. Ralph liked and respected Kurt and enjoyed working for him. I still remember some great Christmas parties and interesting slide shows about Bhutan and Nepal. Kurt will be greatly missed. My sincere condolences.

What a productive and useful life he lead! We will be thinking of you. I will write soon as soon as i can find your address.

A good friend for over sixty years, a mentor and inspiration, a joy to work fork for and to be with at times of play and leisure. The memories are many and recall great times of sharing the satisfaction of a job well done. My sincerest condolences to the entire family, to Susan, Rick and Randy and to his widow, Pamela, who has been steadfast at his side offering the love and care to sustain Kurt until the last breath of his life. We mourn his passing but will remember him long after.

Remembering you and Pam and the good old days in Nepal, Kurt.
