Kurt was one of the good ones! Great family man, devoted husband and father…and a great tennis instructor! He welcomed me with open arms to the tennis program at Old Natchez when I didn’t know a soul! I am grateful for is friendship over the last 3 years! Rest In Peace knowing what a positive impact you had on so many lives 😢
- From Mary Modell:
Praying for Lizz, Cortland, Roger and all his friends and family. I will miss Kurt always. He had such an impact on all of us lucky enough to be coached by him.
- From Trish Clark James:
It is a tragic loss for our tennis community, even those of us that don’t belong to ONCC. Kurt was such a great spirit, one who talked about his family consistently and tennis consistently. He will be missed heavily.
- From Christy Johnson:
Kurt was such a huge part of my son’s childhood. Hunter spent hours a week on court with Kurt learning to play tennis. Kurt was so patient and kind with him.
He genuinely cared about Hunter as a person and poured into him warmth, kindness, humor, and a huge passion for tennis. He did it all while pushing Hunter to get better and better and not accepting less than his best. Hunter genuinely loved him.
We are in shock at his passing. He was one of the good guys and it seems so unfair he was taken.
Our hearts and prayers are with Lizz and the boys. We are so sorry for your loss. We will forever be grateful for Kurt and how much he poured into Hunter.
May his soul rest in perfect peace.
