July 16, 1934 ~ May 3, 2020
Curtis was born on a farm in Niagara, ND on July 16th, 1934 to Vernon and Ruth Kinney. He passed away Sunday, May 3rd, 2020 at home peacefully with family at his side after being diagnosed in March with pancreatic cancer. Curtis married Donna Mootz in 1952, enjoying 56 years together until she passed away in 2008. He worked for Gaffaney’s Office Specialties for over 25 years, and finished his career working for Brandt Money Handling, making many friends in the banking community. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, gardening, going to the casino, and playing cards, especially pinochle. He loved going to his cabin at Lake Eunice, but his biggest smiles came when the grandchildren were around him. His favorite holiday was St. Patrick’s Day and he’d call everyone to say “Top of the mornin’ to ya.” To honor this tradition, we will wear green to celebrate his life.
Curtis is preceded in death by his wife, Donna, brothers Wayne and Glen, and sisters Laurine and Virginia.
He is survived by his children, Trent (Gail) Kinney, Teresa (Donald) Van Raden, Terryl (Richard) Springer, Tamara (Douglas) Spry, 10 grandchildren, 19 great-grandchildren, and his sister, Dori Born. It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone, for part of us went with you.
Arrangements are being handled by Boulger Funeral Home. A service is planned for Saturday, May 9th at 10 AM at Nativity Church in Fargo. Visitation will be one hour prior to the service.
