Curt was a successful & hardworking sales representative for Nabisco, working 37 years in an ever-changing retail environment until his retirement in 2016. Immediately following his retirement, he followed his true passion of the open road, spending countless hours on his Harley Motorcycle. He has said that he experienced a sensation of euphoria every time the pavement moved beneath his wheels. His passion for motorcycling throughout the years created friendships through Centre Riders, Abate & ultimately a brotherhood with the Reading Motorcycle Club. He will forever be known for his ability to converse, his culinary expertise, kindness, & his gentle soul. This thoughtfulness with his friends & family extended to his best canine friend, Jaxson with whom he spent many hours. For this reason, in lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations to Pets Come First, 2451 General Potter Hwy, Centre Hall, PA 16828.
