Curtis Ray Reeves passed away peacefully at Siloam Springs Nursing Home in Siloam Springs, Arkansas on June 23, 2018.
Curtis was born on February 21, 1929 to George and Minnie Richardson Reeves in Baskin Louisiana. He attended school in Louisiana as well, then entered the Army in 1951-1953 during the Korean War where he loaded ammunition and served as a military policeman. Curtis worked several years in Houston, then Brenham as a glass installer at Bluebonnet Glass and finally in maintenance at Brenham State School where he retired after 25 years.
Curtis was preceded in death by his parents, brothers Johnnie Reeves, Grady Reeves, James Lavelle Reeves and sister Myrtis Bradford, as well as son in law, Jerry Don Fletcher and his first wife Bernice Schmitt Reeves.
He is survived by his wife Helen Reeves of Siloam Springs Arkansas, sons Stuart Reeves of Siloam Springs Arkansas and Doyle Reeves and wife Vicky of Burton Texas, daughters Claudia Reeves of Ft. Worth Texas and Amber Fletcher of Ft. Worth Texas, grandchildren Monica Reeves, Joshua Reeves, Kaci McPherson, Kevin Reeves, Kurtis Reeves and Kelli Fletcher, great grandchildren Kayleigh Fletcher, Hunter and Tanner Locke, Hannah McPherson and numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Curtis loved hunting, fishing and gardening, even supplying his produce to local grocery stores and restaurants in the Brenham area for a while. He also gained the reputation of quite the winemaker to those close to him.
He always had a good sense of humor and classic one-liners to tell and he could make people laugh with his endless stories. He will be greatly missed.
Funeral services will be held at Wasson Funeral Home in Siloam Springs Arkansas on Friday, June 29, 2018 at 2:00pm.
His children will also be hosting a Celebration of Life gathering at Brenham Memorial Chapel on Saturday, June 30, 2016 from 4:00 – 6:00 p.m. for family and
friends who can’t attend the service in Arkansas.
