John Sutter CURTISS

1928 - 2015 Obituary Condolences


John Sutter Curtiss, born July 26, 1928 in Buffalo, New York and passed away on July 15, 2015 at Hospice of Cincinnati. Faithful husband of Lynne Curtiss (nee Buss). Beloved father of daughters Elizabeth and Mary Anne Curtiss, and sons John and James Curtiss. He is survived by grandsons John and Paul Curtiss, and William, Malcolm and Christopher Morriss, and their wives Akina Miyata Morriss and Yvonne Gaspar Morriss, as well as much-involved sons-in-law and daughters-in-law. He was the beloved uncle of Loki Feliciano, Mary Frasier, and Peter Fong of Hawaii. John always loved camping and travelling with his family. His greatest joy was to be surrounded by family at the many regular gatherings at his home. John was a graduate of the Wharton School of Business, and did his graduate work at Columbia University and the University of Colorado. He taught economics to several generations of UC students, and he was friends with truckers, farmers, and ordinary workers. He was a generous patron of the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra and a long time supporter of the Free Store Food Bank. After retirement, John was an active member of the Railroad Club of Cincinnati, the Metallic Club, and the Society for Industrial Archeology. He was also a volunteer driver for the Cincinnati Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired. John was intellectual and emotional to the end, trying to make his final painful struggle with Alzheimer's Disease as easy for his family as possible. Let all who loved him and respected him carry on his example.
