Kurt Adler

d. October 14, 2020

Kurt Alfred Adler sailed across the finish line on October 14, 2020 after a brief illness. He was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on June 26, 1982, and was a resident of Mandeville, La. Kurt is survived by his mother, Barbara Greeley Adler; brother and sister-in-law Greeley Lawrence and Brandon W. Adler and their daughter Louisiana June (Lulu); aunt, Kay Greeley LeGros, widow of H. Leighton LeGros, aunts Christa Battiansila, Karin Alverson, and Margit Wingfield; a host of cousins; friends too numerous to mention; and, last but not least, his faithful dog Oscar Lee. He was preceeded in death by his father Uwe Manfred Adler (in 2011); grandparents, Lawrence and Carmen Thibodaux Greeley; and Alfred and Erna T. Adler. Kurt was an avid sailor who distinguished himself in Gulf Yachting Association-sanctioned regattas, and other racing events across the Gulf Coast and beyond, and was a certified US Sailing instructor who taught numerous children the basics of boating during summer sail camps at Pontchartrain Yacht Club. He was employed by Jeff Lindheim/The Canvas Man, a specialty awning and boat cushion company. Kurt was usually on or around the water, involved in all things nautical. A kind and gentle soul, devoted to his family and many friends, he will be sorely missed.
A reception will be held on Sunday, October 25, 2020 at Pontchartrain Yacht Club, 140 Jackson Ave in Mandeville, La., from 2:00-5:00 pm, to commemorate Kurt’s life. Having a memory to share will be appreciated, as will casual/nautical attire. In the interest of safety, please bring a face mask.
Sail on, Kurt, and may you eternally have fair winds and following seas.
