Carl John Curt passed away unexpectedly on August 25, 2013, at his residence in northern Nevada. He was born on August 26, 1929, in Detroit, Michigan to Carl L. and Elizabeth Sommer Curt.

He was a previous resident of Fallbrook, Calif. Carl was a retired electrical engineer whose accomplishments included working with his father-in-law, Fred A. Thaheld, an inventor who held over seventy patents.

In the 1950’s, Carl drafted Thaheld’s "Weathermaster," a frost machine used in Orange County, Calif.

He also served in the Korean Conflict, being invited back to South Korea in 2002 to celebrate their "Fifty Years of Freedom." Carl is remembered on the Veteran’s Wall in the Fallbrook Village Square.

Carl loved art, music, animals, traveling, fishing, and the outdoors. He once spent weeks sailing, navigating the inland passage of Alaska in his boat with only his cat for company.

Survivors include daughter Suzanne Flood and grandson Jared; former wife Jeanette Thaheld Curt Waldrep; former wife Charlene Curt; and numerous nieces and nephews. Two other children, son Darrell Curt and daughter Teresa Fox preceded him in death, as well as longtime companion Carmen Danforth.

Interment will be at a future date at the Northern Nevada Veterans Memorial Cemetery in Fernley, NV. For information, email
