Curtis was a smart, funny, hard working man loved by all who knew him. He was born in Virginia Beach, VA & moved to Key west in the beginning of 2017. He completed EMT at the College of the Florida Keys and attended Florida State Fire College in 2018 where he completed FIRE I & II. Curtis had a huge passion for fitness and had been doing crossfit since he moved back to Virginia Beach in 2012. Aside from fitness Curtis loved photography, being on the water, music & poetry, making people laugh, being a dog dad and pursuing a new career as a firefighter/EMT.
Unfortunatley Curtis also suffered from TBI, PTSD & depression as a result of his service which eventually won the internal battle. Curtis was a true Warrior, but no battle should ever be fought alone. There are great organizations out there that want to help and people that want the same.
