Curtis attended elementary school at P.S. 364 and I.S. 346, and high school at Brooklyn Academy. He was always on the move, never staying still for very long. Curtis loved to read and could finish a book in a few hours.
He loved anything having to do computers and video games. As a teenager, Curtis was an avid handball player traveling around the City playing in different matches. He worked in several industries searching for his niche. Curtis loved working with children. He was always well mannered, very polite and respectful. He was excited about the new career he was to embark upon to assist those with disabilities. He understood their needs because he had medical issues that kept him in and out of the hospital throughout his life.
A source of great joy for Curtis was being a big brother to his siblings, playing tricks on them, playing games and just hanging out. He attended Hillside International Truth Center where Dr. Barbara L. King is the Pastor. Years ago, Curtis made the decision to be an organ donor and be a blessing to someone’s family. Praise God!
