Curtis loved spending time at the shack, trapping with his dad, hunting and being in the outdoors.  He had a unique sense of humor and was a story teller who loved to talk, and boy did he talk a lot!  He was known for giving his “Curtee Hugs” and always kept a jar of Smarties handy for the grandchildren.
