Curt was born on March 27, 1961 in St. Cloud to Gary and Rosalie (Ewers) Orth. He graduated from Apollo High School in 1979. He proudly served in the US Army as an Airborne Medic. Curt returned to St. Cloud and began working. He married Mary Messer on June 23, 1990 at Christ Church Newman Center in St. Cloud. They lived most of their lives in St. Cloud. Due to poor health, Curt retired in 2016.

Curt enjoyed karaoke, camping, all sorts of nerdy games and fantasy role playing board games. Above all he treasured spending time with family and friends. He will be remembered for his very bad jokes, his inability to quote movies correctly and his love of singing. Curt will be lovingly remembered as a devoted husband and father.

He is survived by his wife of 30 years, Mary; children, Brennan and Melissa at home; siblings, Lynn (Doug) Kammeier of Iowa, Kent (Margaret) of Waite Park, Todd (Conni) of St. Stephen, Gwen (Chuck) Ruhoff of Sauk Rapids, Denee (Todd) Noble of Sartell, Stephani (Nathan) Tesmer of Clear Lake; step-mother, Sue Orth of St. Cloud; and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Curt was preceded in death by his parents; and infant son, Patrick.
