Curtis Flipse

January 5, 1967 — March 10, 2016

Parker, Colorado resident Curtis Wayne Flipse, 49, died Thursday, March 10, 2016.

He was born January 5, 1967, at Goodland, Kansas, the son of Linda Ann (Weigel) and John William “Bill” Flipse.  He graduated from Goodland High School with the class of 1985, and from Northwest Kansas Technical College, also in Goodland.

He served his country in the United States Army.  In 2005, he moved from Maryland to Parker, Colorado.  He was a member of the Parker Christian Church and Veterans of Foreign Wars.  His friends and co-workers admired him for his work ethic and integrity.  Curt’s passions were playing video games and nerf wars with his children; he was a lover of fine wine, great food, and he had a hot pepper in, beside, or on every dish he ate.  He enjoyed hunting with his son, father, and brother.  He had the ability to bring tears of laughter through his endless jokes.

Preceding him in death were his grandparents.
