Curtis worked his entire life in agriculture. He grew up farming with his dad and later worked in the fertilizer and seed business. After retirement, he continued working in agriculture part-time for Bayer in claims settlement and had his own handyman business. Curtis enjoyed working with and having fun with his customers. 

 

Curtis was a loving husband, father, and grandfather. He was very proud of his two children and two grandsons.
