I read somewhere that he was born in 1966... so about 53 or 54 years old.
Very tragic indeed! RIP, Curt!

A lost life is always tragic. It's doubly so here considering how much Curt was curating lost Atari treasures.

I will miss his FB posts (the only way I had any contact with him).

RIP

Followed one link to his online obituary.

Looks like he was 53... :(

Holy crap, I'm 58.

I read his age and had the same feeling as I'm just coming up to 55.

Watched a few videos with him in, he had an incredible amount of Atari knowledge, very sad.
