Kurt married Winnie on September 3, 1933 and they lived happily in the north end of Winnipeg while raising their 3 sons. It was here that many life long friendships were forged. In 1954 they moved to Fort Garry where they resided for 50 years. Winnie was busy with their two younger daughters as well as keeping the social calendar full. Kurt did find the time for his Friday bowling league and for Sundays at the cottage at Winnipeg Beach between his 12 to 14 hour workdays. Following retirement, curling was his preferred activity. Kurt and Winnie enjoyed wintering in Arizona, Europe and 18 trips to Hawaii. In later years son Ed took them on road trips with Warren in Canada and the U.S. Kurt had the talent to “fix” anything. Amazing the family with his creative solutions and the fact that no matter what the piece Kurt could find it in the “stash” in either the basement or the garage. Nothing was ever thrown out, in fact Kurt was one of the earliest environmentalists, recycling everything. Respecting Kurt’s wishes, no service will be held. A celebration of Kurt’s life will be held at 31 Sloane Crescent on Saturday, March 26, 2005 from 1:00 - 4:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Khartum Shrine Transportation Fund, 1155 Wilkes Avenue, Winnipeg, Manitoba, R3P 1B9.
