Dr. Curtis has been my personal physician for the past 20 years - he saw me through some very rough times and helped me recover from a very serious illness. I am shocked and saddened to read this story. I will very much miss this great man and physician.
May God be with his family during this time of sadness -

I can't believe I won't be seeing him look at my wife like she's crazy anymore. So long Doc.

Thoughts and prayers for the families....

Our family is grieving the loss for these families and for our community. We knew Dr. Curtis, he was our family doctor for 22 years. He was a wonderful doctor who cared for my wife, all three of our children, and me. We appreciated the extra care and time that he gave us when we needed it. He was an excellent diagnostician, and because he was a DOM, he was willing to look at alternative approaches to healing. Dr. Curtis had a good bedside manner with his patients, had a passion for medicine, practiced what he preached in medicine, pursued further training and education, always advocating a good diet and exercise, and loved his friends and family. He will be greatly missed and our prayers are with his family.

What a shame..he was my family's doctor for young...

All three men were great guys and the community will greatly miss them. What a loss. Prayers for the families.
