Kurt died at the scene on the bridge.
Earlier this week, the family also returned to the site of Kurt's death for the first time - laying a wreath in his honor on Westminster Bridge.
Masood then left the vehicle and stabbed an unarmed policeman, Keith Palmer, who died.
In the years before his attack, he lived near a number of known radicals in Luton before travelling between homes in east London and Birmingham.
