Brown family deepest condolences for your loss. Kurt was such a great guy! So enjoyed our stays on Washington Island as I was growing up. I’ll never forget playing lacrosse with Ed, Jay and Kurt and all the other antics of our summers spent on Washington Island.

Suzanne, Ana, Colton and family. It is a shock to loose Kurt and very sad. I knew him too briefly; he was a super star person. I wish you comfort and peace.

My sincere condolences to the Brown family. Kurt was one the good ones. He was someone who was loved by all that met him, the most genuine, kind, person and all we wanted to do is make people smile. He will be missed beyond words.

Kurt was the best friend to my later brother Jeff Holtzman (Luther) They had been friends since junior high school when our family moved to Antwerp. What Kurt and Jeff shared was so very special. Kurt was kind, caring and so generous to my brother. Always checking in on him when Jeff ended up in the hospital. Kurt even purchased a new laptop for Jeff in the last few months before Jeff died. Jeff had only mentioned he was thinking about getting one, but Kurt went ahead and bought one and sent it to him! That is the kind of guy he was. Kurt was last person Jeff talked to in December before he passed the next day. They both genuinely loved and care about each other to the end. .They are both in heaven now sharing some laughs and rum and cokes. RIP Kurt....
