Kurt Wiltsey was a friend of Hoskins Park from inception. As a passionate follower of Jesus Christ Kurt also reached out to the less fortunate himself, taking in homeless men to his own house, clothing them, feeding them, helping them move closer to God and being a friend to them, just as the Bible tells us to do in Matthew 25:40. He also developed fatherly relationships with a few less fortunate kids who grew up with Kurt, and whom he supported as a surrogate parent. He was an inspiration to those of us who knew him as a devoted follower of our Lord Jesus Christ. He was the one up front at church during the worship part of the service, praising God and many times on his knees in a position of humility before his Lord.
Unfortunately Kurt became sick with cancer and died within six months of diagnoses. For those of us that were with him until the end, it appeared to us that Kurt fought the good fight and hung on to Jesus until the end of his life. And now we are joyful knowing he is with Jesus in Heaven. We named the house after this Kurt, the one who lived with an eternal perspective and who made it clear to all who knew him, that he lived to glorify his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. It should also be known that "Kurt's House" currently houses three previously homeless men and his picture is framed on the wall of the house. It is a tribute to a wonderful man, friend and witness of Jesus. We love and miss our friend Kurt and look forward to seeing him again one day. To Christ Be The Glory!
