Curtis Schwartzkopf, of Riverton, died Friday, Feb. 21, 2014, at his home. He was 24 years old.
Per his request, there were no services.
Curtis Edward Schwartzkopf was born July 2, 1989, in Rawlins, the son of Jeffrey and Karen Schwartzkopf. He lived in Saratoga until the family moved to Riverton in 1999. He attended and graduated from Riverton High School.
After high school, he went to work in the oilfield and worked for Key and Fluid Pro until his health no longer allowed him to do so. His family said he was a "Jack of all trades, master of none."
His family said he loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting, trucks, helping his family with concessions at the Fremont County Fair, spending time with his dart friends and playing pool. It was well-known that he loved the Wyoming Cowboys and that he had brown and gold memorabilia all over his "man cave." He fulfilled a lifelong dream by going to a Wyoming Cowboys game in the fall where he was treated as a VIP. His family said the best part was that Wyoming won, and he saw his name on the scoreboard. Above all, he loved his family and spending time with them.
He is survived by his daughter, Kamerie Jo Clark; parents Jeff and Karen Schwartzkopf; siblings Carrie (Corey) Buescher, Tony Romero, Jennifer Schwartzkopf, Jeffrey N. Schwartzkopf, Kimberly Schwartzkopf and Timothy Schwartzkopf; grandparents Angie Schwartzkopf and Albert Cabrera; and numerous nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his grandfather William Schwartzkopf, grandmother Esther Cabera, grandfather Grandpa Saylor and cousin Scott Szperda.
Memorials may be made to the Curtis Schwartzkopf Memorial Fund at Wells Fargo Bank, 616 N. Federal Blvd., Riverton, WY 82501.
