Curt spent 23 years in the U.S. Navy. He was a St. Mary’s County sheriff’s deputy and an Athens County 911 operator. His love and devotion to his family was unparalleled. He loved God, his country, cruising (traveling of any kind, really), poker and slots. He was an adamant supporter and defender of veterans, the flag and his grandkids. He will be missed more than he ever could have imagined.
