Anthony Kurt Infinger, 58, of Cross, SC, told his final inappropriate joke, turned in his final change of address card, laid down his working tools, and went home to Jesus on January 6, 2024.
Kurt was affectionately known as Big Papa or Kurt-e-poo to most of his friends and family. He had a kind and giving spirit - never met a stranger and was always ready to help anyone in need. His love for God was evident in the way he tried everyday to be the salt and the light to all those he met along the way.
Although he had less than an average life span, he did not lead an average life. He took great joy in living life to the fullest and making everyday an adventure. If he wasn’t working, you could be sure to find him and the wife out on the motorcycle blowing through the back roads or out on the lake catching the big bass.
Kurt was strong willed and stubborn, but also had an enormous heart. He was clever and filled to the brim with a lifetime of knowledge. He could fix anything and loved teaching others how to fix things as well. He took fashion advice from no one. With his trademark tank top and jean shorts with hiking shoes his comfort always outweighed the latest fashion trends. He was always ready for summer and “suns out, guns out”
He despised vegetables, spicy food, hip hop, bad drivers, and know-it-alls. Kurt had many loves too. He was desperately in love with his wife, kids, grandkids, and his motorcycle and bass boat. His family was his heart and if you knew him, you knew it.
He was retired from the Sheet Metal Workers Union where he had been a worker, organizer, and teacher for more than 30 years with Local 399. After his retirement he couldn't sit still and started another whole business (much to the annoyance of his wife) helping small businesses with maintenance at a fair price. She says he just missed people to chat with.
He was born in Charleston, SC, son of Donald and Marilyn Infinger, who were waiting to meet him when he arrived in heaven.
He left behind his legacy of passion of love and life to be carried on by his wife and best friend, Rebecca
His brother, Keith Infinger and wife Charlotte of Goose Creek.
His sister, Tonya Davis of Albany, OR
Lane Crenshaw and wife Megan of Irmo, SC
Alyssa Alderman of Hanahan, SC
Jennifer Infinger and fiancé, Alex Ayotte of Summerville and
Tony Alderman of Columbia,SC
Scarlett, Sosie, and Xander Mcmeans,
Roman Ferguson, Liam Infinger, and Aysun Ervin.
Many others called him dad, papa, uncle, and brother- there's not enough paper to list them all.
A memorial service and banquet will be held in his honor at Crossroads Community Church on Saturday, January 13,2024 at 1:00 pm. Please dress comfortably and come prepared to share all your favorite memories while we share a meal after the service. If it's not raining, riding your motorcycle to the service is encouraged as he wanted us all to make as much noise as we could to celebrate a man who always noisily filled a room.
In lieu of flowers, Kurt would love each of you to perform a random act of kindness in his honor. He was also passionate about starting a fund through the church for families of patients with chronic Illnesses to receive gift cards for gas, food, and other needs. Donations for that can be made to Crossroads Community Church in the name of Kurt's cards.
All of our family would like to extend our most sincere thanks to Dr. Ryan Kalinsky and the team at Lowcountry Hematology and Oncology and Roper Hospital for all of the amazing care and compassion shown to Kurt and Rebecca during their fight with cancer.
