Cheryl and Berg family. Sending our sympathy to you all. My husband, Steve has fond memories of Curt over the years. Curt was there for him when his dad passed away years ago, when he worked at Batteries Unlimited, and they did cardiac rehab together in the last few years. He was a good man and we are so sorry.

Curt, our "Neighbor" when we moved into our house on First Ave S.E. With our two kids, we always had a babysitter next door with Curt's 3 girls. The first time we heard loud, revving engines and squealing tires out side our front bedroom window and it was 2:30 A.M., we knew we were living next door to "The Sheriff"!! Curt was able to just laugh it off as no big deal. Curt and family were also willing participants in our "block parties" for years. So, Thank You Curt for the wonderful memories.
