EDDIE’S JOURNEY

Eddie B. Curtis, Jr. (Eddie B) was the youngest child born to the late Eddie B. Curtis, Sr. and Johnnie Mae Lee on March 9, 1941 in Midland, Texas. He made his transition to be with the Lord on Thursday, March 8, 2018, 5:00 a.m. at Oyster Creek Manor in Missouri City, Texas.

He attended public schools in Midland and was a proud graduate of the Carver Hornets in 1959.

After relocating to Houston, Texas, Eddie became a member of Windsor Village United Methodist Church under the leadership of Kirbyjon H. Caldwell, Senior Pastor. He remained a devoted and faithful member until his death.

Eddie B is survived by his beloved wife of 30 years, Shirley Curtis of Missouri City, Texas; cherished daughter, Carla Curtis of Humble, Texas; sons Michael Wallace (Carolyn) of Wylie, Texas; Anthony Curtis (Melissa) of Killeen, Texas; sisters Annie Thomas and Alice Jackson of Midland, Texas; brother R. D. James (Blanche) of San Diego, California and a host of grand, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Eddie was employed over 38 years for Shell Oil Company as a Regulatory Permit Analyst. He made friends everywhere because he was a ‘talker’ and never met a stranger. He loved people, his yard, singing, music (blues and jazz) and entertaining (in his man-cave called Bubba’s).

Eddie was a sweet mentor to me as I moved up from "the file room" to regulatory and permitting group
under Alvie Fore. He was charged with teaching me the ropes of permitting and did the job with kindness and thoroughness which I deeply appreciated then, and still think of often today. If it were not for his (and Alvie's) believing in my skill set, I may never have "graduated" to the positions I had later in life when I married and moved to California. Beyond all this, I will remember him for his infectious laugh and sweet demeanor. God Bless you Eddie.

Shared office with Eddie many years ago at Shell in Town and Country before they invented Woodcreek. He truly was a special person. Shirley and family, he was truly the best of the best.

When that Shell crew from Midland transferred to Houston, Eddie B. was one of the first people I met. GQ, over the top personality, suave and debonair. Whenever I saw him, wherever I saw him, he was always the same. Rest peacefully, Eddie B.

The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me lie down in green pastures, he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul; He leadeth me in the path of righteousness for his name's sake. Continue verses
