Curtis Lloyd Stromstad, age 85, passed away on Friday, June 24th.  He is survived by his wife of almost 58 years, Anne; his daughters Sara DeMuzio (Sam), Amy Scott (Craig), and Susan Biondolillo (Tom); nine grandchildren – Sam, Laura, Cole, Quin, Maria, Anna, Jesse, Tommy, and Tori.  He is also survived by a sister-in-law Elsie Stromstad and many nieces and nephews.  Curt was predeceased by his four siblings Emmet, Allen, Donald, and Beverly.

Curt was born in Noonan, ND to S. Bennett and Esther Stromstad.  He graduated from Alkabo High School.  He graduated from North Dakota State University and was their biggest fan in Western NY.  Curt served in the Army Corps of Engineers.  After briefly living in Denver, he moved Seattle and it was in Seattle that he met the love of his life, Anne Williams.

He held several positions prior to settling in Rochester and working for Eastman Kodak for over 25 years.  Curt lived a life of service in the Lutheran Church in both his congregations as well as the Synod.  He was a proud member of the Lions Club (Victor and Canandaigua) and was awarded both the Melvin Jones Fellow and Robert J. Uplinger Distinguished Service Awards.

Curt was a master mechanic and could fix anything – a 1955 Thunderbird was his labor of love.  He lived life to the fullest – he had his private pilot license, loved to travel, and was always up for life’s next adventure.  He loved being a grandfather and spending time with his family.  The last six years he treasured time with his beloved dog Phred.

A Memorial Service will be held on Wednesday, June 29th at 2pm at St. John’s Lutheran Church – 888 Victor-Egypt Road, Victor.  The family will be available at 1pm and after the service to share memories of Curt with his friends and family.
