Curtis Eugene Measner was born Aug. 8, 1934, in Horse Creek, the son of Leander and Gladys Measner (Paulson). Curt grew up in Horse Creek, and graduated from the Osceola High School. Curt enlisted in the U.S. Army and spent two years in Germany and Japan. He was honorably discharged in August of 1962.
On June 15, 1963, he was united in marriage to Judy Johnson. Together they had two children, Roxanne and Todd.
For most of his adult life Curt was a farmer, farming in different communities in the area. He also had a handful of factory jobs, but farming was his passion.
The things Curt enjoyed most in his life were his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. When those grandkids walked into the room his face just lit up.
With the many health issues Curt had he still bullied through them all and continued to keep his crazy sense of humor. Which if you knew him you would always get a good laugh if he was around. He will be so very missed by his family.
