Curtis was my lab instructor while I was a civil engineering student at UTK - he was always very supportive, helpful, and extremely well like by all the students. I was reacquainted with Curtis a few years ago; Brookdale would bring a van full of seniors to an outdoor music concert series at Springbrook Park. Curtis and my son made a connection and we always looked for each other at each concert. I remember a few years ago when Curtis spotted us walking towards him and he jumped-up out of his chair and nearly sprinted towards us - the entire Brookdale staff ran towards him... It has been a couple seasons since I last talked with Curtis and I regret not stopping by for a visit. Curtis left a very positive impression on my career and life and will be missed.

He was my friend and I will miss him. I went by and said hi to him every day I was at work. He would smile real big and say “There’s my buddy”! He was such a kind soul.
