Obituary for Bud

Helmut William (‘Bud’) Kurtz, Jr., 74, of Greeley, CO passed away Thursday, June 14, 2018 at North Colorado Medical Center.
He was born on July 10, 1943 and raised in Windsor to Helmut HW Kurtz, Sr. and Esther (Miller) Kurtz. He graduated from Loveland High School with academic honors and attended University of Colorado where he majored in Aeronautical Engineering. Bud enjoyed the Colorado climate and remained a lifelong resident of Northern Colorado. Bud was the maintenance and grounds supervisor for the Johnstown School District before retirement and worked with the City of Greeley maintaining parks after retirement.
Bud enjoyed fishing, camping, occasional gambling and telling stories. He had a joyous laugh and he thoroughly enjoyed being around family and friends. He loved his grandchildren. This was evident at Christmas time when he played Santa Claus and donned a white beard and long hair. Bud was a true problem solver; there was nothing he couldn’t fix or leave in a better state than he found it. He also had a passion for his cars, a Cadillac to name just one.
A true patriot, Bud served his country, from 1967 to 1970 in the Army Reserves and was a member of the Johnstown VFW.
He is survived by his wife of 21 years, Donna Kurtz; children, Terri Kurtz, Jillyn Johnson, Jessica Hacker, Lydia Cromwell, Marianne Ma’ae, Alice Chess, and Dr. Margherita Vaulte; 11 grandchildren and 1 great grandchild; sisters, Lynda Kaser and Mayo Honstein and many other extended family and friends.
He was proceeded in death by his parents.
A Celebration of Life Mass will be held at 9:30 a.m. on Tuesday, June 19, 2018, at St. Peter Catholic Church at 915 12th Street in Greeley, CO. Friends and family are welcome to gather at Luther Park, 2200 10th Street, after the service.
