Curt played a big part in his and our children growing up. From bus stop chats to his leading Kyle and Andrew's boy scout troup, or dinner on our deck, I don't think he ever said goodbye with adding...."have fun." He will be missed. Our prayers and condolences go out to Barb, Kyle and Erin. We love you! Reply to this comment

Played rugby with Curt at Mizzou as well as with the Black Sheep in St. Louis. Always the smile. I last saw him at a alumni game in the 90"s. Go with God say hi to Tubby for me. Reply to this comment

Played with Shenks at Mizzou and with the Ramblers. Never a dull moment. I’d best leave most of the specifics for another time. God Bless. RIP! Reply to this comment

Curt always had a kind word and most often would share a joke or three. We will miss you Curt. Reply to this comment

A light has gone out. He was a fearless liver and lover of life. Many fond experiences. Reply to this comment

On an early fall morning at Mizzou in 1977, Curt asked me what I was doing that afternoon. “Nothing” was my reply. He told me to come to a rugby practice, and from there we were teammates at Mizzou & Old White, roommates in Atlanta, and had countless great memories together. You will never be able to say “the shenk” was boring. I miss him already, and heartfelt condolences to Barb, Erin & Kyle. Reply to this comment
