Steven C. Curnutt, July 4, 1952- July 11, 2016

I am sorry to report that classmate Steve Curnutt passed away on July 11, 2016.  Here is his obituary in the Everett Herald. 

Here is the text of the obit:

July 4, 1952 - July 11, 2016 Steven C. Curnutt, 64, of Gold Bar, Washington died July 11, 2016. Steve, aka "Reno", "Money Man", was born on July 4, 1952 in Seattle, Washington. Steve was drafted by Heavens Field of Dreams on July 11, 2016. He is leaving behind wife, Kathy Curnutt; daughter Nichole Joanis (Deven); mother, Edwina Curnutt; brother, Edwin Curnutt (Kris); and four grand kids. He is joining some of his family and teammates now, they will make quite a team up there. Nicki, his grand kids and softball were the best parts of his life. He loved, loved, loved them. Now he is free again, no crutches, no disease and no pain. He loved his family and friends, joking to almost the end. We will end with one of his favorite phrases "Until we meet again, you were #3 in our programs and #1 in our hearts." A service will be held at Mountain Valley Church, 230 Lewis Avenue in Gold Bar, on Saturday, August 13, 2016 at 2:00 p.m. After the service everyone is welcome to come celebrate Steve's life at Prospectors Steak and Ale.
