CLARENCE FRANK KURTIN, 77, passed into Heaven on September 25th just
as he lived, surrounded by his entire family in Houston. Frank was
born September 27, 1928 and lived his whole life in Houston. He
graduated from St. Thomas High School and received his BBA from the
University of Houston; he earned his CPA, CLU and RIA. He was
especially well-known in banking circles where he was one of the
first in Houston to computerize banks for IBM in the 1950s. He
formed his own computer company Southwest Data Management, Inc., and
then was involved in the operation, formation and IPOs of numerous
banks and investment firms. He played baseball for St. Thomas High
School and was a pitcher. He was a true athlete until the end; he
loved tennis, golf and baseball. He studied to become a priest but
wisely decided to marry his childhood sweetheart, Virginia "Ginny"
Borel. They created their own parish of seven children during their
marriage of 53 years. He was very involved in St. Cecilia Catholic
Community. He was preceded in death by his parents: Katherine &
Frank Joseph Kurtin and by his brothers: Julian, Claude & Stanley
Kurtin and by his sisters: Rita Alexander & Gertrude Williams. Frank
is survived by his sister Tessie Councill and his loving wife,
Ginny, and his children: Tim (Dana), Danny (Gayla), Kathy Stewart
(Alan), Kellie Collier (Robert), Kammy Jaques (Scott), Tobin
(Andrea), and Kay Egger (Dan). He had beautiful grandchildren:
Timothy, Joseph, Emily, Daniel, Jonathon, Zach, Vanessa,
Christopher, Ginna, Claire, Matthew, Katie, Joseph, Ryan, Joshua,
Matthew, Ashley and Elise. The family will receive visitors on
Wednesday from 6-9 PM at Earthman Hunters Creek on Katy Freeway.
