Curtis was a very outgoing, kind, and humble man.

Curtis moved to his grandparents’ home, on the Blood Reserve and was raised and cared for by grandparents whom he took as his parents. He attended schools on the Blood Reserve and in Lethbridge Alberta. He enjoyed and participated in various sports and had a fond love for the trips he would go on with his family. Curtis easily made friendships with people from all walks of life. Curtis was a quick learner and eager to take on new projects, one in particular was when he was relocating to the City of Calgary shortly after the birth of his first son, Paxton. Curtis had applied to an available job posting for a “framer” in the Construction Industry, he landed an interview but without any formal training in the area he began teaching himself what would be required of him in this job role, thanks to his research and determination he successful landed an interview and was successful in securing the position. Curtis continued to pursue his passion in construction until a near fatal head and back injury made it impossible for him to continue working. This ailment plagued him till his demise.
