Curtis Eugene Anderson was born on March 20, 1955, to Charles Anderson and Fannie Anderson.
He and his family moved to Michigan City in 1969 from Peoria, Illinois. Curtis attended Elston High School, and later joined the U.S. Army.
Curtis was a gentleman of few words. His smile was everything. He had a love for sports, and was a master of the pool table in his younger days. Curtis had a love for music, "Frankie Beverly and Maze" being one of his favorites, War and Marvin Gaye.
Curtis entered eternal rest on Wednesday, Nov. 17, 2021. He was preceded in death by his parents; and three brothers, Johnathon A. Anderson, Elbert Jones and Gilbert Anderson.
A private service will take place.
Those left to cherish his memory include his children, Fonda Waters of Anna, Texas, Curtis Anderson and Shalon Anderson, both of Indianapolis, Indiana, and Tawanda Jackson of Benton Harbor, Michigan; his grandchildren, Andrew Eckwood, Travis Smith, Rod'ja Douglas, Curtis Anderson, Cecily Anderson, Kamiya Anderson, Josiah Anderson, Dequan Potts, Alexa Potts, Jalen Potts and Jada Turner; and 10 great grandchildren; three sisters, Gertrude Anderson, Jenny (Tommy) Thomas and Bessie Murphy; two brothers, Charles Anderson and Noah Jones; and a host of nieces and nephews. To his special niece, Valerie Anderson, thank you for being there.
Curtis will be sorely missed by all who loved and knew him.
