Curly was genuinely a "Dandy like Candy" guy. He was always sharing a smile, making somebody laugh daily, and the life of the party. His motto, "Go with the Flow," inspires us to enjoy every precious moment in life rather than fighting the current. A life so wonderfully lived deserves to be wonderfully remembered. Prost!

A celebration of life for Curly will be held on Saturday, September 16th from 12pm-3pm at their condo’s club house located at N84W16033 Menomonee Ave, Menomonee Falls, WI.
