The Passing of Curt Moffatt

December 31, 2018

It is with great sorrow that we note the passing of our long-time friend and colleague, Curt Moffatt.  Curt passed away while on vacation with family. 

Curt will be remembered for many things— his graciousness, generosity, keen intellect, and deep and abiding love for life, his family, and country.  Curt was a stellar colleague, friend, and mentor to all who crossed his path.  He had a spark that was contagious to those around him and an openness and humor that allowed him to easily connect with others.

Curt strived every day to be better at all that he did. Often, he would rise before the sun to exercise and answer emails.  He treasured the many gifts he had in life and faced life’s challenges and tragedies with grace.  A dedicated philanthropist, Curt gave back to his beloved Duke University and the Sandy Spring Friends School where he served on the board.   Curt was a passionate advocate for the Caron Treatment Centers, working to raise capital and reach out to others in need of assistance in all the complexities and challenges of recovery. 

After serving for many years as a partner and key leader at Van Ness Feldman, for the past several years Curt had his dream job with Kinder Morgan, rising to the position of General Counsel and Vice President.

Howard Feldman, a founder and former chair of the firm said, “Curt was my colleague and close friend who, during my tenure as chair, was instrumental in the growth and expansion of the firm.  He was an exceptional lawyer who had an unmatched vision of the future of the firm. We mourn the loss of our dear friend.”

Chair Richard Agnew said in a statement to the firm, “Curt was a loved and respected member of our firm family.  We will never forget his laughter, vibrant spirit, fierce loyalty, sense of justice, and passion for helping others. He was, and always will be, an important part of the firm who will be greatly missed.”
