Curtis was born December 30, 1944 and was raised in Sherbrooke, Quebec by his parents Bernice and Ernest Ross. He later moved to Niagara Falls to make a family of his own. Curt worked many years in the trucking industry, and had many stories to show of it. He was a very outgoing person. Curtis cherished his time with his family and friends. One of Curtis’ most favourite pastimes was having a beer at the local bar. He had a caring heart and will be missed by all who knew him.

As per Curtis’ wishes cremation has taken place and a celebration of life will take place at a later date.
