Curtis was a devoted son, brother, uncle, and friend. He was a gifted designer and weaver.

He was part of the Dallas gay community with a heart of compassion for those separated from family. He loyally sat by the side of too many who died from HIV/Aids. We all remember his infectious laugh, his kind and gentle spirit, love of family and friends and his beautiful curly hair.
