In Loving Memory – Kyle Curtis

April 6, 2023

May 5, 1961 – January 7, 2023

With great sadness, we announce that Kyle Curtis, of Chandler, AZ, passed away unexpectedly on January 7, 2023. Born on May 5, 1961, Kyle had more than 30 years of diverse banking experience in financial reporting, lending, credit authority and administration, and senior management level positions. He spent his entire career as a banker in Arizona, starting at the entry level and working his way up to serving in several executive leadership positions before becoming a banking consultant.

At Young & Associates, Kyle was a dedicated leader, manager, mentor, and teammate for over 11 years. He was a vital part of the lending and management divisions of the company and served as the Director Management Services since 2019. He assisted his clients through the de novo formation process, those under regulatory enforcement agreements, management and board of director assessments, appraisal reviews, loan reviews and ALLL/CECL methodology reviews, loan portfolio stress testing, and policy development and implementation.

Jerry Sutherin, President & CEO at Young & Associates, reflected on Kyle’s passing and contribution to the company…

“Kyle’s work ethic and understanding of the banking industry were unparalleled. He was always willing to assist co-workers and clients by conveying this knowledge with logic and occasionally humor. However, more important than our peer-to-peer relationships that we all maintained with Kyle, he was a dear friend to everyone. He will be missed by everyone that he met.”

Kyle is survived by his loving wife, Mary; son, Ryan (Alycia) Curtis; daughters, Sara (Nick) McCord, Katelyn (Jonathan) Curtis; and granddaughter, Ella Curtis.

Both personally and professionally, Kyle’s talent, dedication, leadership, and friendship will be greatly missed by our corporate family here at Young & Associates, as well as so many bankers across the country.
