Skip - I found your comments to be full of compassion and respect for a fellow classmate.  You are so correct in pointing out he was taken at way to young an age.  And for you to be a part of his passing must have had an affect on you as well.  No one should have to endure such a painful situation at such a young age.  Curt was very lucky to have you as a friend for the years you shared.  He and all the other classmates we have lost too soon will be with us in spirit at the reunion.

I too was in a mid year transition from Freedom School to Aptos. Curt was one of many friends I had there. I remember Curt to be a fun guy to be around. I distinctly remember his Haircut, a flat top. I remember the lost feeling I felt when I heard of his unfortunate passing.

I also have fond memories of Curt. He was my very first date that my parents let me go on. You always remember your first date. He was taken from us way too soon.

I remember the rainy day that Curt died.  When we rode the school bus home that day, down Highway 1 past where he had died, we were all sad and crying.  Handsome and daring, Curt was like our own James Dean.

Our Curt. . . Aptos School, class of 1961. . .  Curt was adorable.  He had the biggest, sweetest grin; never had a bad word to say about anyone.  He was an exceptional athlete and dancer.  You would consider yourself very lucky if Curt asked you to dance.  He made you look good !  Gone too soon.  Way too soon.

I remember Curt from Aptos School. He was always smiling, a fun guy to be around. We played a lot of sports together. He was a very good athlete. We didn't run together much at Watsonville. I remember the day he passed. I was on the bus to school from La Selva Beach. When we pulled on the freeway, there he was trying to hitch hike to school. We all waved and laughed because we were going to beat him to school. Next thing we knew he was in a car passing us. Now it was his turn to wave and laugh. When the bus passed the vehicle accident on the way to school, we never  imagined it was the car Curt was in. It wasn't until later at school that we heard the news. What a sad day. What a loss.

So sad to be thinking about Curt dying at such a young age. I first met Curt when our Dads worked together and really liked him. I recall he lived over in Rio Del Mar while I was from La Selva. I remember getting together with him and having a blast...such a great time at that age. It was such a terrible tragedy for so many of his friends.

I also remember losing two other good friends back then, Mike Dare and Larry Dvorak; two of the nicest guys you'd ever want to meet and run around with....both taken in automobile accidents as well. I was lucky to have had these 3 guys as friends for sure.
