From Lachlan of Cromarty

  • Kurt was a great guy to have around. Sure, he could occasionally be a grumpy old man, but that was his perogative! When I was just a college kid, I remember shooting archery with him. Later, during Jeanne Marie Lacroix's tenure as Crescent, I occasionally worked shoulder to shoulder with him. I specifically remember a time when we were having a scroll-signing meeting after the main CoH meeting, he joined us in the work/festivities. I do miss Kurt.
  • Also, in the "odd coincidence" category, Kurt, Jeanne Marie and my father (who is not SCA) all worked for the same modern company for a while.

From Catherine de Winter

"Kurt was a true Renaissance Man, skilled in archery and knowledgeable about munitions, as well as a talented embroiderer, heraldic artist, and silversmith. As Seneschal, he made me very welcome in Heatherwyne. He wrote adventure and science fiction novels -- I was fortunate to read parts of them. His persona was a Hanseatic merchant (and probably a spy for the Crown).
