Robert W. Curtis
December 23, 1956 ~ February 2, 2023
Resided in: San Antonio, Texas
Robert “Bert” W Curtis, Jr., unexpectedly passed away Thursday, February 2, 2023 at the age of 66.
Bert was born December 23, 1956, in Superior, Wisconsin, the youngest of 5 children to the late Robert William Sr. and Joyce (McPherson) Curtis. After many of his family’s corporate relocations around the United States, Bert arrived in San Antonio in 1971 and called it home ever since. He graduated from Theodore Roosevelt High School and found his niche in life doing commercial and residential construction including many years with a federal contractor that performed renovation work on many remote island military installations including Guantanamo Bay Naval Base, The Azores and The Marshall Islands. He enjoyed those years and loved to talk about learning the local customs and made some lifelong friends. He retired 4 years ago and realized his dream of finally building his dream work shop and was in the process of renovating his home. He was known for his high work ethic, genuine smile and kind and compassionate spirit. His hearty laugh at the joys and the absurdities of life will never be forgotten.
He was preceded in death by his parents and his fiancé Holly Keck. He will be missed by his siblings, Christopher R. Curtis of Toms River, NJ, Scott M. Curtis of Union, WV, Claudia C. Mroz of Atlanta, GA, Amy C. Stateson of Elizabethton, TN and numerous nieces and nephew and their children, and cousins around the country.
Bert touched many hearts through this life, especially those of his dear friends in San Antonio and the surrounding areas, many who considered him as part of their family. He was greatly loved and respected and his physical presence will be sorely missed by them. A memorial celebration of life is being planned in his honor and remembrance. Friends and family will be notified of the time and place. Remember Bert as the Wisconsin boy who found himself in Texas, lived life to his fullest and was a Texan til’ the day he died.
Rest In Peace.
