    Curt was a patient listener and skilled surgeon, exemplifying the best qualities of what is known as “bedside manner”. He accepted the challenge of the most difficult cases, often those that were poorly compensated, an approached them with meticulous preparation.
    My mentor during orthopedic surgery residency, he was a patient and learned teacher and a model for his students to emulate. Always in good humor, he was an able administrator and respected leader.
    He held on to fond memories of his short few yers with Shirley and treasured their time together.
    He left the world a better place by his presence.
    May he rest in peace.

    My husband and i were warmly welcomed to share table #10, at Beacon Hill Assisted Living dining room. He kindly shared some of the books of his family heritage, that he penned from materials gathered. We discovered our common Swedish heritage, dating back to grandparents’ immigration to the land of opportunity, which treated them well. We extend our condolences to his nieces and nephew. Table 10 will never be the same!

    I visited Curtis and table #10 at Beacon Hill in May 2018. I drove there from Philly to see him (and the tulips in Holland) for the first time in 65 years since our Army days at Chinon Engineer Depot, near Tours,France in 1954. He was the Camp doctor. The Depot was just being established to provide materials to build a jet fuel pipeline clear across France into Germany, necessary if Russia was going to attack……but never did. We went on vacation together down into Bavaria.. then to Holland …then to London and Oxford. His humor was ever present. I will miss you Doc.

    Dr Edholm was truly dedicated to medicine and the care of his patients. He always had time to talk and answer your questions. In those days, his ashtray was over flowing from the time he made for his patients. He performed my Herrington Rod and Fusion surgery. I’m forever grateful for his skill and wonderful demeanor. He was the best!
