In 2006, Curtis retired and spent his time fishing and hunting which were always centered around great friends, fun and family. He loved laughing, joking, cooking, watching football and basketball, gardening, talking and spending quality time with family and friends, visiting neighbors and always helping any and everyone who needed it. He loved gospel music especially quartet gospel music like The Rance Allen Group, The Jackson Southernaires, and The Canton Spirituals. Curtis was affectionately given the nick name "Boo-Boo" by his dear aunt Ineatha when he was a little boy. That name has followed him into adulthood.
