Curtis is predeceased by his brother Ray; his grandparents and his mother-in-law Mary.

Curtis was the middle child of three boys. He grew up in St. Vital, attended Woodlawn Elementary School, Minnetonka and Dakota Collegiate. His family later moved to Ile Des Chenes, where he attended Lorette Collegiate. He was very active in in sports, especially hockey, playing for the St.Vital Victorias (MMJHL). He was also very active in the community of Ile Des Chenes, coaching and being part of the executive community at the sports centre.

He worked at Safeway for 33 years in Manitoba and Ontario ending his career as store manager, after which he went on to start his own business.

Curtis and Colleen were married in September of 1988. Chase was born in 1991 and then their second son, Cass, in 1992. Curtis and Colleen decided to build their new home next to his parents home in Ile Des Chenes. Curtis’ passions later in life were golfing, fishing and most of all his backyard pool. Curtis was so happy when he became a grandfather, he cherished every moment with his granddaughter Quinn. Curtis was an incredibly special person, always happy and always wanting a good game of cards.

Curtis’ family would like to thank the Ile Des Chenes EMT and all the staff at CCU and ICSM at St. Boniface Hospital.
