North Viking, Kurt, passed away over the weekend I believe he was 48 years old. I had the opportunity to meet him and am proud to call him a friend. He loved high school sports and at one time coached tennis at North High. He was a regular caller to many of the local radio sports shows where he loved talking high school sports. He never intentionally tried to offend folks and just loved to push buttons in a friendly funny way.

The world is a little less bright today.......

R.I.P. you will be missed by all who knew you. I will especially miss your memorable discussions of early city series football. Thank you for the many enjoyable pick'em contests. Condolences to your family.

He died at such a young age. Not sure if it's appropriate but if you could divulge how he passed I'm just curious.

It's easy to root for your team when they're doing well, but North Viking wore Akron on his sleeve regardless of the circumstance. That level of pride is rare nowadays. Thanks for the lessons North Viking. RIP.

A fun poster to read, and a real fan of all Akron football. RIP.

This is very sad news to hear. Kurt was a main stay to our radio show and our Scoreboard Show. Kurt was always pro APS and loved to talk High School Sports. All of us at Big Time Sports will Greatly miss him. Praying for his family. R.I.P. "Kurt from North Hill"

I am truly sorry to hear this. I met Kurt at a Mooney-ASVM game at Green Street several years ago. He was a good guy. My condolences to his family and friends. RIP.

He was one of the best. Didn't bother me because of little interest in Akron football but dang he sure got them going didn't he?

Prayers up to NV and his family. Way too young, very sad. Would love posting in his pick em threads. He was one of a kind. This thread would make him happy.

Don't forget about LCD (LittleCardsDad of SWO fame). Too many good posters to be lost in less than a year.

WHOA!! I didn't hear about LCD. When the heck did this happen? He was one of my favorites. Damn this is upsetting.

NV often invited me to join him (along with some other Pick'em yappsters from this area). I am sure sorry I always seemed to have something else to do. Not sure about the general age of the posters here but I think we are getting older (I'm 54). I sure wish I would have raked the leaves or whatever on another day and actually met North Viking. Regardless he will be missed by me.

I don't know everything, but from what I was told he has been feeling ill for a few weeks. He finally went to the doctor and found out it a viral infection (I don't know of what). He was given a shot on Friday, but I don't know if it was too late.

This is why I said if you are sick, go to the doctor. I know us men like to tough things out, but sometimes it's more than we can handle

Amen. Sure wish now that I'd have shown up.

I knew Kurt for years through JJ and Yappi then finally was fortunate enough to meet him at an Ellet basketball game a few years ago. Since that time we attended several more events together and shared texts weekly.
He was a great guy who loved high school sports in general just as much as he loved the City Series.
Going to miss all those game day texts and updates from my APS "insider".

Until we meet again...miss ya bud! Go Vikings!!!

We also lost Woody Hayes a few years ago, funny how you think a lot about someone you've never seen or don't even know if they're real until they pass.

How fitting is it that we wrapped up the high school football season Saturday and he passed Sunday?
