Curt worked for many years for CompUSA. Once he received his Master’s Degree, he moved into various hospital administration roles in Austin and then Dallas.
In 2001, Curtis returned to Ennis to live on the family ranch. While back in the Dallas area, Curt was very proud to be a tenor singer for the Turtle Creek Chorale and Cathedral of Hope Church Choir as well as a volunteer for The Resource Center.

Catholic Church of Ennis, followed by graveside service at St. Joseph Catholic Cemetery of Ennis, Tx and then luncheon/reception at the family ranch in Ennis. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to cancer research or to the Ellis County SPCA. But if your heart wants
to send flowers, please call Garden Gate Floral of Ennis (972.878.6616; firstname.lastname@example.org) as they are managing the flowers for his casket and we have found them to be very nice people who do a very nice job with arrangements at a very fair price.
The last fourteen years were beyond difficult for Curtis, with multiple major medical emergencies each year. We appreciate the many prayers that have been extended to help Curt and the family through these most difficult times.
We know he will be an amazing addition to God’s choir in heaven. May he now rest in peace.
