So sorry for Kurt’s close friends, family and co-workers. Many people in Richmond loved this man. Always a friendly smile and wave whenever I saw him in Church Hill, at yoga practice and of course, at Metzgers. Kurt, you will be missed and remembered well.

I interacted with Kurt maybe a grand total of three times. He was the kind of person who makes you think to yourself, “wow, this is a really great guy.” He mixed me cocktails, chatted about my motorcycle. But it didn’t feel like small talk. He seemed genuinely interested in making a connection. Really sad to hear this awful news. I can’t imagine how gutted his loved ones must be.
