A long, strange trip comes to an end

I was deeply saddened when I received the obituary of Curt Deatherage in my email box Friday night.
For years Curt had generously shared his writing and photography with the readers of The Creswell Chronicle under the title of “It Happened in Oregon.” These articles were well read and often talked about in coffee shops and businesses around town.
Curt was a soft-spoken gentle soul, and I got to know him even more when he worked on my 1970 International Scout at his business of 30 years, Curt Deatherage Auto Electric. I could tell that he really enjoyed life . . .
