Thoughts and prayers to Chad and Mona and all of the Lemair family. Curtis was always smiling, cracking jokes, and was a great friend. He never tried to fit in or do things to be “cool” he was just himself. He was genuine. Will miss you buddy. Keep being you up in Heaven❤️

Incredibly sad news. My first memory of Curtis was when he was probably 8 years old at Pinnacle camp in Kimball. He kept correcting @NagelMatt and I on how to say his last name. He was so much fun to coach over the years. I don’t know what to say. Sure going to miss you Curtis.
