Obituary Condolences

Albert E. Curtis
Utica
Albert E. Curtis, 83, of Schuyler Commons, Utica, died on March 25, 2012, at his home. Albert was born in Fulton, the son of the late David Easter and Vieta (Howell) Curtis. He lived in Sterling and Fair Haven until moving to Clearwater, FL, in 1979. Upon retirement, he moved to Poland and most recently resided at a retirement home in Utica. Upon graduation from Hannibal Central School in 1946, Albert went into the family farming, canning and trucking business. On December 28, 1950, he was united in marriage with the former Beverly A. Talcott of Red Creek. Albert's life employment was busy and varied. In conjunction with the family operations, he opened a machine repair shop in Sterling. Later, he formed a partnership with William Senior in Wolcott. He worked for Disson and June, Pultneyville, and managed the Red Creek National Bank for two years before joining the team of C.P. Ward, Inc., Rochester. Upon moving to Clearwater, FL, Albert opened a Florida division of C.P. Ward. In later years, Albert was employed by Essex Crane Rental of Alabaster, AL, where he worked from his home in Clearwater. As a licensed Tug Boat Captain, Albert worked out of Oswego Harbor on Lake Ontario. His financial expertise opened many opportunities for service such as on the Fair Haven National Bank Board and church boards, and also to help many in handling and investing their finances, especially in Florida. Albert served several years as a member of the Red Creek Central School Board of Education and was a member of the Red Creek Rotary Club. He served as Supervisor for the Town of Sterling for six years. His care and concern for family and friends was always evident. While living in Poland, Albert valued his relationship with the Kuyahoora Valley Ambulance Corps volunteering as a driver for several years. Albert's church affiliation has been with the Sterling United Methodist Church, Largo Christian and Missionary Alliance and the Poland Baptist Church. Survivors besides his wife of 61 years, Beverly, include one son, Albert E. Curtis III (Christine), of Chattanooga, TN; two daughters, Nancy Remington (Steven), of Clinton, and Melanie Davis (Sam), of Tampa, FL; six grandchildren, Ty Remington (Abby), Tana Case (Brian) and Teal Reeves (Dylan), all of Glenville, Jennifer Curtis, Utica, and Melanie Athley (Trevor) and Albert Curtis IV (Jessica), all of Chattanooga; and six step-grandchildren, Kara Slaght and Megan Davis, both of St. Petersburg, FL, Angela Lowe (Kevin), of Huntsville, AL, Michael Jezewski, of Nashville, TN, Christina Meeks, of Chattanooga, TN, and Andrew Jezewski, of Murfeeboro, TN. Albert was blessed with seven great-grandchildren. In addition to his parents, he was predeceased by a sister, Dorothy Fulmer; a daughter-in-law, Cynthia; a son-in-law, William Slaght; and a sister-in-law, Frances Talcott. Extended family members include Jean Marie Fox (Ray) of Phoenix, AZ, Arnold Talcott (Ravile) of Albuquerque, NM, George Talcott of Clearwater, FL, and several nieces and nephews. A memorial service will be held at the Community Baptist Church of Poland on Saturday, April 21st, at 11:00 a.m. Those attending are invited to join the family for a luncheon, at the church, following the service. On Sunday, May 20th, another memorial service will take place at the Sterling United Methodist Church at 1:00 p.m. Burial will be at the Sterling Center Cemetery. The family expresses deep appreciation for all the help, support and prayers that have sustained them throughout Albert's illness and most especially for the Hospice care in his last days.
