Managing Funeral Director
Curtis has always wanted to be a funeral director, even from the earliest age he can remember. Growing up in Nephi, Utah, he is the son of Byron and Rosalie Wilkey, and is the sixth of nine children, three of which siblings died in infancy.
From a very young age he learned the value of hard work from his father and learned that he was truly happy while being in the service of others. As a directed and determined youth, Curtis earned the rank of Eagle Scout at the age of 14 and at age 19, served in the Michigan, Lansing Mission.
In 1993, after working various jobs, he decided to pursue his dream. He packed up his family and moved to California to work for Wilson and Kratzer Mortuaries while attending San Francisco College of Mortuary Science. This opportunity provided him with the greatest experience in all aspects of the mortuary profession, including earning the highest scholastic achievement of 1995, the Mu Sigma Alpha award.
In January 1996, as a Licensed Funeral Director, Curtis began his career at Wheeler Mortuaries, serving the families of Springville and Mapleton, where he had been for the past 20 years.
Having over 23 years’ experience, Curtis now manages Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary. He feels it is his "Calling" in life, not just his profession, to carry out with dignity and honor the final services of those who have died.
Curtis is known by all for his peaceful countenance, compassionate understanding and tender care for those who have lost their loved ones.
Curtis enjoys many hobbies but absolutely loves biking, four-wheeling and camping. He is known for his funny sense of humor and his unique and endearing love for his wife, April, and their nine children.
