Rest in Peace Mr. Kurzman may family be blessed.
Stan was a very nice man. He was the attorney for my work and he also performed my divorce and was very cordial and helpful. May the family and friends be comforted during this time of mourning. God bless.
My thoughts are with your family, my sincere condolences. You were a pleasure to work for and I enjoyed the experience. Thank you for the memories.
Stan was one of the first attorneys I met when I became a court clerk for a circuit judge.
He always treated me, the judge and the staff with dignity. He was a professional and a good advocate for his clients.
Dani, I am sorry to hear of the passing of your father. Based on my opinion of you, your father must have been a wonderful man.
Pat and Don MacQuarrie
Our thoughts have been with you and Stan since your phone call in December. You had such fun together even as Stan's health became a challenge. You were his advocate, partner and the love of his life. What a great example for the children and grandchildren. Stan will be missed by many, Pat and Don
My sincere condolences go out to you Jaime, along with your entire extended family. I had the privilege of working with your father on several occasions. He was always so calm and reasonable and always gave good advice. I know his passing will leave a huge hole in your family. I pray blessings and comfort for all of you. ????
