Managing Funeral Director
Curtis has always wanted
to be a funeral director - even from age 7 he remembers watching
the hearse pass him on the street headed to the cemetery knowing that someday
he would be the one driving that car.
Curtis is an Eagle Scout and served an LDS Mission in Michigan.
In 1993 he decided to pursue his dream and moved to California to work for Wilson and Kratzer
Mortuaries while attending San Francisco College of Mortuary Science. He earned the highest scholastic award of Mu Sigma
Alpha award, in 1995.
Curtis began his career at Wheeler Mortuaries in January 1996,
serving the families of Springville and Mapleton, where he had been for 20
years before being made manager over Sundberg-Olpin Mortuary in 2016.
To be a Funeral Director is a "Calling" in life to him - not just a 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. Directed and determined all his life, he
is now extremely accomplished in every aspect of what it takes to be an
excellent Funeral Director, father, and husband, all of which are very
important to him.
Curtis 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.
