Kurt K. Thierbach 5/16/56 ~ 11/15/10 After fighting cancer for 2 years Kurt lost his battle on Nov. 15th with family by his side. We cheered his fight but are now left to grieve his loss. We will always remember his warm smile, his helping hand and his long chats on sports and fishing. Kurt was the owner of Parkland Collision Center, where he took great pride in his work. He leaves behind his sons Sean and Dylan, his parents Karl and Annie, brother Karl (Dorothea), nephew Michael (Debi), Carmella, numerous in-laws and relatives in Norway and Germany. He will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A special thank you to the great staff and volunteers at Franciscan Hospice House for their compassionate and wonderful care. A memorial service will be held Dec. 4th at 12 o’clock in the Celebration of Life Center at Mountain View, with a reception to follow. Donations can be made to the Franciscan Hospice House or charity of your choice. Please sign online guestbook at www.mountainviewtacoma.com.
