Obituary - Thomas Anton Kurcz


Thomas Anton Kurcz

February 8, 1965 – August 20, 2023

It is with heavy hearts that we share the passing of Thomas (Tom) Anton Kurcz. Tom was born on February 8, 1965, in the Bronx, New York, and died peacefully at home in Point Roberts, Washington on Sunday, August 20, 2023, after battling cancer for several years. Though we have heavy hearts, we find solace in knowing that he is no longer in pain. Tom’s career started at Dictaphone, and after several decades working in the technology field, he made a switch to healthcare, with his ultimate goal of being a nurse. This was not a surprising move, given his huge heart and desire to care for and protect those around him. Tom wanted to share his caring spirit with others in need. In the years before cancer arrived, Tom shared many hiking, backpacking, and RVing trips with his partner, Jen (later his wife). His love of photography is evidenced in the many beautiful pictures of their journeys. When he started chemo and could no longer work at St. Joe’s, he took it as a sign to branch out into other areas. He started an electronics repair business, repairing cameras, laptops, and audio equipment. He also met a great group of guys online (Axis of Awesome) and started creating stop-action videos. Up until the last month, Tom could be seen around the Point riding his bike, walking his dogs, and dancing to his favorite tunes. Tom is survived by his wife Jen, stepdaughters Victoria (Ben) and Samantha (Kole), his mother Stefanie, sister Ina, niece Ava, and dogs Mika and Trooper. A small gathering was held at home on September 13 to share memories and say farewell to Tom as he was laid to rest. In lieu of flowers, Tom would have wished for everyone to donate blood or make a donation to your local hospice
