Curtis Dean Stromberg was born April 9, 1943 to Adolph and Mabel (Kleven) Stromberg in Braham, Minnesota. He grew up on the family farm west of Braham and was the second of three boys.
Curt attended Braham School and was then drafted into the United States Army in December of 1964. He received a Rifle Marksman and National Defense Service Medal and was honorably discharged in November of 1966. On October 4, 1968, he married Julie Knutson at the Braham Evangelical Lutheran Church.
Curt worked full time at HB Fuller in Fridley for 31 years while farming; raising crops and cattle. Following his retirement from HB Fuller, he worked as a janitor at the Braham Evangelical Lutheran Church for 16 years.
Curt enjoyed washing and waxing anything that had wheels, riding his Harley, snowmobiling, fishing and camping. While camping, he loved to play horseshoes and horseshoe golf. He loved spending time with family and friends, especially his 3 grandbabies. He was always there when anyone needed help; doing anything he could for them until he couldn’t do it anymore. He will be dearly missed by all who know and loved him.
The family would like to thank Fairview Hospice for their excellent care over the past 10 months.
