Curtis and I both worked for different contractors in Camden, Ark. at the Navy base but the first time I say him was at the Air Force Academy in Coloradi Springs, Colorado about 1955. We both came to Baton Rouge in the late 50s and our paths crossed again and I had the great pleasure of knowing him and working with him in the construction business. When Curtis hit the job , he hit it running and you better be ready or you were going to be left behind. He did not back away from anything and all involved knew when Curtis showed up positive things were going to happen. Curtis was a big highlite in my life and I thank the good LORD that our paths crossed as he was a major influence in my life. Remember GOD is good------all the time. I pray the Lord will shower Curtis family with peace that passes all understnding. Dwight Smith

Curtis, was my brother. He was always there for me when we were growing up. Due to dad's line of work, we had to move from School to School almost every year. The quickest way I could make friends was to tell the girls that Curtis was my brother. He was handsome, a great athlete and popular. In our last conversation, I asked if he was a Christian. He said, yes, that he had been saved as a child in Thornton, Ar. Though we rarely saw each other, the world seems smaller now.
