Curtis Lee Huelsnitz was born on October 13, 1959, to Willard F. and Ethel G. (Johnson) Huelsnitz at the Wadena Hospital. Curt was raised in rural Bertha and baptized and confirmed at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church in Bertha. After graduating from Bertha High School in 1978, Curt pursued his education at Wadena Tech School, where he earned his Electrician’s degree. Curt then became a Master Electrician and co-owned and operated West Star Electric in Wayzata for 35 years. Curt and Susan (Kuehn) were joined in marriage at St. John the Baptist Church in Dayton. Together, for 37 years, Curt and Susan divided their time between Elk River and their cabin up North. They both enjoyed the great outdoors. Curt loved nothing more than hunting and fishing in all kinds of weather, snowmobiling, four-wheeling and spending time with family and friends. Curt will be dearly missed by many extended family members and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents; brother, Roger Huelsnitz; sister, Katherine Boehland; and nephews, Joel Esteb, Barry Huelsnitz, Jason Decker and Adam Decker.

Curt is survived by his wife, Susan; brother, Gary (Ellen) Huelsnitz; sister, Marian Esteb; sister, Candace Decker; along with many nieces and nephews.

Serving as urn bearers will be Curt’s siblings Gary, Marian, and Candace.
