Curtis was a wonderful Godly Christian man who made a huge difference in my life growing up in church. He worked many tireless hours with our youth group and choir. I don't know how he did it, but he always did it with a smile and a kind word. I saw him many times volunteering in his later years for different worthwhile causes and organizations. He will be missed here on earth, but I know that Pearl was glad to see him come through the gates of heaven! I will be praying for Stephen and the family in the days ahead.

So sad to hear aout Curtis but now he is at peace...until Pewarl gets hold of him! Having known him for some 50 years he was always going at his own beat of the drum. Prayers for his family.
