Condolences to the entire Martin and extended family on the sudden passing of Curtis.

Curtis was a great guy and very unique for whom I unfortunately lost touch with after I moved out of the Boston area in the early 90's. He was however a large part of my life during the high school and college years.

Curtis lived on the same street as me (College Road in Concord) and it was around 10th grade (1982) that he appeared on the scene after moving from Houston, TX. At the time we thought it was a bit odd that someone from Texas would move to Concord but nonetheless we took a liking to him because he had an accent and he wore a different rock band (black) tee shirt on what seemed like every single day. He was a big music fan and taught me a lot about classic rock and some great touring bands. We went to many concerts (many times camping) ptogether in the early to late 80's including to name a few; Crosby Stills & Nash in Spencer, Ma and on the Boston Common, Chuck Berry in the Orpheum Theatre (Boston), BB King in Boston, multiple Grateful Dead shows in Providence, RI, Worcester, MA, Buffalo, NY (Rich Stadium), and Saratoga Springs, NY.

I've only ever been in one car accident (not including fender benders) and it was with Curtis and he totaled my truck.. but we joked about that incident for many years after as I like to think he saved my life because had he not taken my keys it would have been me driving and that would have ended much worse.

Curtis did not take the college path in life. While in high school he had an afternoon job at Wilsons Lumber in Concord center near the Concord depot (now Ann Chang restaurant location) and he worked in the yard pulling wood for the local carpenters. I can clearly remember how serious he took that and also the wood shops classes at Concord Carlisle High School - no fooling around when it came to that stuff for Curtis. He took an apprentice job with a builder coming out of high school and never really looked back. I recall an extensive addition that he performed on his parents house up on College Road and when I saw that I knew this was what he would be doing for the rest of his life.

Curtis was a wonderful carpenter and based his business out of Fitchburg, Ma. My understanding was that he had loyal customers who worked with him multiple times over the years. We will miss Curtis.. RIP my friend.
