At the tender age of 68, Curtis “Pete” Sibert will be retiring from Sibert’s Memorials on Dec. 31, after 28 years of service. Curtis is passing his business over to his two sons, Rodney and Kennya Sibert.
Curtis started Sibert’s Memorials in 1991 with a small office on south Main Street, McCormick. After a few years at that office, Curtis opened a second location in Abbeville, and moved his McCormick location to Highway 28, McCormick. Curtis has completed thousands of memorials over the years with both sons by his side since day one.
When asked about passing on Sibert’s Memorials to his sons, Curtis states, “I am proud to be able to pass my business over to my two well-deserving sons. They will be able to take this business to the next level. They both will have my continued support for their success. My older son Rodney is extremely talented when it comes to mechanics and can fix anything. My younger son Kennya is a forward thinking businessman and wise beyond his years. Together, I see these two young men going great things for this business as well as their community.”
Curtis is a 1970 graduate of McCormick High School and a 1977 graduate of Piedmont Technical College.
He also attended Lander College, now Lander University majoring in Business Administration. During retirement, Curtis plans will be to continue reading historical books, traveling, and he has set a goal to play golf in every county in South Carolina.
