Kurt Alan Acuff

Kurt Alan Acuff was born June 29, 1964, in Ft. Worth to E.W. and DiAnn Acuff.

On March 1, 2014, his 20-year struggle with heart disease ended and he was welcomed into his Heavenly home greeted by his Mother, DiAnn (Kalaki) Acuff, who preceded him in death.

He was a longtime resident of Lone Camp and on Oct. 23, 1982, he married his high school sweetheart, Shanna Catlett. In 2012 they celebrated 30 years of marriage with a renewal of their vows.

Kurt was a Christian man who lived life to the fullest. He was a man with many talents. Any task he set his mind to, he would accomplish.

He was a member of the Santo Fire and EMS for over 25 years and truly loved helping those in need. He was a hard-working and loving Husband, Dad and Papaw.

Carrying on his memories are his father, E.W. (Dub) Acuff Jr. of Santo; his wife, Shanna Acuff of Lone Camp; his daughter, Marti Jones of Palo Pinto; and her husband, Greg, son, Kody Acuff of Palo Pinto; and his wife, Jenna; son, Klancey Acuff of Mineral Wells and his fiancé, Lindy Seigler; and son, Randy Baker of Mineral Wells and his fiancé, Amanda Enriquez.

Kurt was a loving Papaw to his five grandchildren Zoey, Ransom and Cole Jones of Palo Pinto, Kaden Acuff of Palo Pinto and Kenzlee Acuff of Mineral Wells.  He also leaves many great friends and family members to cherish the times they had with him.

A special thank you to Trisha and Dr. Singh of Solaris Hospice for taking such good care of him.

A Celebration of Life honoring Kurt will be Saturday, March 8, 2014, at 11 a.m. at the Lone Camp Community Center.

  • Sunburn isn't the only sign of summer that can leave you itchy and blistered

    You've got a rash. You quickly rule out the usual suspects: You haven't been gardening or hiking or even picnicking, so it's probably not a plant irritant such as poison ivy or wild parsnip; likewise, it's probably not chiggers or ticks carrying Lyme disease; and you haven't been swimming in a pond, which can harbor the parasite that causes swimmer's itch.
