We were all blessed to know Curtis. He was kind and respectful to everyone he worked with and always focused on what needed to be done to keep the sailors safe.
I know his family will miss him but I hope they know that he’s watching over all of you from heaven.

Bishop Strickland was a kind and compassionate friend who gave support in good times and bad. He was caring and sincere. He set a great example of stewardship which continues with his family. His presence will be missed until that day of reunion when we reunite with loved ones. That he is in a better place, free from suffering and grief, and still active in service is our hope as we hope for that eternal resurrection and the growth that follows. May God's blessings continue with us, his flock of followers as we honor his memory.

God bless Curtis Strickland's family.
His friendship, guidance and wisdom was truly a blessing during the many years we worked together. He'll always be in my heart with fondest memories of our achievements including our engaging conversations of technical trivia and engineering designs.
Curtis will be missed by all who had the pleasure to know him.
