Barry “Curtis” Stevenson of Georgetown, Texas, passed away at his home in Walburg, Texas, on September 1, 2020 after an extended illness.

Curtis was born on June 18, 1947 in Weslaco, Texas in the Rio Grande Valley. During Curtis’ early years the family lived in several of the Valley towns. They finally settled in Rio Hondo where Curtis spent his last several years of high school. Curtis was the first grandchild in a large family of 12 aunts and uncles, many of whom lived close to his family. His relationships with all of his cousins were established during this time and to this day, they remain close.

Curtis graduated from San Houston University with a degree in police science. He further pursued his law enforcement education by graduating from South Texas College of Law in Houston, Texas with a Doctor of Jurisprudence degree. After a more than 40 year career in law enforcement, Curtis retired a Master Peace Officer in 2008 from Harris County Constable’s department and relocated to Georgetown, Texas. During his retirement, Curtis’ upbringing in a large family of many aunts, uncles, and cousins, led him to Genealogical research. His passion was recording his memories and researching family histories. He left behind a legacy of genealogical records that now can be passed on to other family members. After building his house in Walburg and buying his beloved John Deere tractor he dabbled in planting corn, tomatoes, and cucumbers on his four acres. He was blessed later in life to have his son, daughter-in-law and grandchildren move back to Texas and settle in the same neighborhood. He thoroughly loved making memories with his grandchildren.

Curtis is survived by his wife of 45 years, Annette Stevenson; daughter, Cayce Stevenson of Georgetown, Texas; son and daughter-in-law, Scott and Holly Stevenson of Georgetown, Texas; and grandchildren, Elias, Graham, and Willow Stevenson. Included in those who mourn his passing are his sister and brother-in-law, Debbie and Gary Maisel of Beeville, Texas; his brothers and sister-in-laws,, David and Julie Stevenson of Sandia, Texas Mark and Joyce Meyer of Corpus Christi, Texas, Marvin and Byrona Meyer of Oklahoma City, Texas; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, Chris and Hollie Dunham of Moss Beach, California; aunt and uncle, Allen and Jane Tipps of Plano, Texas; and 8 nieces, 4 nephews, numerous great nieces and nephews, and 18 cousins.

I met Curtis in 1988 while I was working for Houston PD in west Houston on nightshift. Curtis was working for Harris County Pct 5 Constables and in those days there wasn’t a lot of interaction between constables and HPD for whatever reason but Curtis and I kept on running into each other and eventually became nightshift buddies, checking by with each other on calls and hanging out during down times, many nights hanging out in dark business areas looking for suspicious activity. This resulted in many burglaries and other crimes which we witnessed and made the arrests. We spent 15 years on nightshift working together like this. Curtis was the big brother I never had and I had tremendous respect for him. He was the smartest guy I knew, pretty much a genius in my book. Curtis made many friends at HPD and PCT 5 and when there was a group of us gathered around, Curtis always had everyone’s ear. Curtis is one of only two officers that I have kept in contact with since my retirement in 2003.
One thing I remember about Curtis was that his favorite movie was “Zulu”. I had never heard of it but I bought a VHS tape and watched it at least a half dozen times just because it was his favorite movie. Two more of his favorites were “The Searchers” and “Lonestar”. They’re mine now too.
I just found out that because of friends that Curtis made at HPD and their respect and fondness for him, at the direction of Ray Hunt, former Houston Police Officers Union President, the union will momentarily lower their flags to half staff on Tuesday after Labor Day in Curtis’ honor. That’s the kind of guy that Curtis was.
I’m proud to have known the man, honored to be his friend, and I will always remember him.
So Curtis, it was a good ride brother.
“Adios” as you would say.
We pray for comfort and peace for Annette, Scott, Cayce, and the rest of the family during this time.

I worked nights with Curtis for many years. He was the smartest guy I knew. He used to get so irritated when flags were lowered for deaths saying, “You only lower the flag for the death of a sitting President!” Just cuz I loved him so much, I will be lowering the flags at our Union momentarily on Tuesday for Curtis as I respect him more than any President! Rest In Peace my brother in blue!💙

His passing leaves an unfillable void with his family and friends, but I'm glad for the memories I have.

Curtis was so well-read and broad-minded. He willingly exchanged his wisdom as well as election tchotchke. I'll be hard pressed to find a replacement to cancel my voting.

I worked with Curtis on night shift in the Parks Division at Precinct 5. I enjoyed working with him so much! He was a heck of a guy and had so many funny stories. One of my favorite memories are of hanging out at the Valero store at 3am and eating hot dogs. It seems like that was our go to place to eat. I remember when he was getting ready to retire and was building the new house. He was really excited. Although we lost touch, I would think about him from time to time and remember the good times we had working together.
