Former BJ photographer Tom Marvin, who plays his guitar on his farm near Salt Fork Park in Ohio and wherever he travels around the country and beyond, has a musical memory with Curt:
Curt's response to this article:
Wish I were still 70 but turned 73 last month. Since I resigned from my previous regular organ job in 2014 I have been subbing at various area churches and decided I missed the regular weekly commitment so I was very happy to begin at Brecksville United Methodist Nov. 17—a warm and welcoming congregation and home to a beautiful Casavant pipe organ.
Didn't really cover labor at the ABJ but worked on State Desk, covered police and was finally on the night city desk as well as religion writer when I went to work for the URW in 1974..
Son Curt Jr. just finished his MFA in Book Art and Fiction at Mills College graduate school in Oakland, CA. where he also studied electronic music as electives.
Good memories of three years at ABJ '71-'74 which was by far the greatest newspaper in Ohio at the time.
