    Kurt was a great guy! I worked with him for 10 years at T.A. Schifsky’s , He laughed so hard at me one day when I was told to bring the roller over to him, and of course I drove it a crossed the field rather then on the road! He just laughed and shook his head at me! He will be greatly missed! Little Kurtie!!
