Kurt John Lesker III, a man who truly loved every moment of life, was surrounded by his children and loving wife when he passed away on October 24th. He died at the age of 66 after a courageous battle with rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare form of cancer. A Pittsburgh native, Kurt grew up in Whitehall and graduated from Baldwin High School in 1967. His yearbook has him listed as “handsome and popular”…that never changed. Kurt’s relentless sense of adventure and joy of life was infectious to everyone he knew, and through them his SPIRIT will live on.
