The Guest Book is expired.

Edward William Curtis was relieved of his earthly duty on March 15, 2018 to assume his post on heaven's streets.

Edward William Curtis was born to Frederick James and Arletta (Horn) Curtis on April 23, 1936 in Lyons, New York.

He is survived by his wife Janet Vivian (Springer) Curtis and her three sons, James Springer, Christopher Springer and Andrew Springer, his daughter Kelly Carter and his sister Thelma Jones as well as his grandchildren.

Ed's true calling was that of a United States Marine. He loved his beloved Corps. Edward William Curtis retired as a Master Gunnery Sargent after 28 years of faithful service.

Ed was a Life Member of the Dickinson VFW Post 6378 and has been a member in good standing with the Eastex Detachment 779 Marine Corps League for many years.

In his senior years, Ed and Janet where faithful church members attending Montgomery United Methodist Church and had recently begun attending services at First Methodist Conroe. Ed loved going to his favorite local restaurants, Giovanni's, Salt Grass and Olive Garden. Ed and Janet often frequented these restaurants with their good friends Ray and Martha Ready along with James and Tracy Andrews.

Ed requested that everyone celebrate his passing as his tour of duty is complete here on earth and that the only tears to be shed should be those of joy as he is excited to see his new Duty Station guarding the Streets of Heaven.

If the Army and the Navy

Ever look on Heaven's scenes;

They will find the streets are guarded

By United States Marines."

"The Marines' Hymn"

Ed's final place of rest will be alongside other National Hero's at Arlington National Cemetery in Arlington Virginia.
