Noel X. Kurtz

Beloved husband and son, Noel Xavier Kurtz, 49, of Bath passed away July 9, 2019.

Noel was born June 28, 1970, in West Branch. He graduated from Ogemaw Heights High School, and from Michigan State University with an accounting degree. He was an extremely dedicated, hard worker for General Motors for many years. He began his career with General Motors working on the line, and soon after graduating from MSU, he moved into various office positions. He was currently working in Lansing.

Noel loved sports and collecting sports cards. Noel always loved the outdoors, especially times spent at the family cabin on the Muskegon River. He loved spoiling the nieces, nephews and his cats.
