Curtis will be remembered by those who knew him best as a loving and godly husband, father, and grandfather. He was a man of numerous talents and interests, yet his singular passion throughout the course of his life was to know Christ and make Him known. His faithful example, teaching, and service influenced many people, impacting both time and eternity.
