Kurt overcame the challenges of his disabilities, led a well balanced life, and was well known throughout the community for his energetic spirit. He was an avid sports fan and loved watching his favorite local teams; the Patriots, Bruins, and Red Sox. Kurt also enjoyed cheering on his favorite high school football team, the Tewksbury Redman. Kurt had been in residence at Wingate at Belvidere for many years.

He was predeceased by his parents and brother Robert, and leaves his sister-in-law, Cheryl (Layne) (Busch) Accardi and her husband Tony of Lowell, MA and Wells, ME, his niece Elizabeth (Busch) Bennett, who lovingly cared for him, and her husband Erik, and great niece Elizabeth A. of Lowell. Kurt's family is forever grateful to the care he received from his family at Wingate.
