Curt worked at Pfister Hybrid Co. and later, Barth Farms, and also worked part-time for IDOT.

He was a member of Secor Sportsman's Club and Woodford County Farm Bureau.

Curt didn't know a stranger, always had a joke and a quick comeback. He took life at full speed, loved to work with his hands, doing things outdoors, running the grain vac and anything ag related.

Curt enjoyed shooting and hunting, and dearly loved spending time with his nieces and the men in their lives; his wife and cousin, Lauren.
