Curtis "Curt"'s Tribute Wall

Please note: if you just submitted a tribute, it is pending approval.
    • Curt and I both graduated from Osseo, MN high school in 1959….and we both had jobs at a family shoe store when we were juniors and seniors in high school. He was good looking, outgoing and a natural salesman. Shoes were probably the beginning of his path to sales. In later years I particularly remember the ski outings at Lutsen, many good memories of time spent with Curt.
