Lloyd Curtis

January 30, 1935 — April 7, 2019

Lloyd Lavon Curtis, 84 of Sweeny, Texas died on April 7th, 2019 at the VA Hospital in Houston.
He leaves his wife of 29 years, Lynette (Dahlgren) Curtis; his sister, Jean Smith of Coffeeville, MS; his son and daughter-in-law, Richard and Susan Curtis of Hernando, MS; his daughter Kathy Walsh and son-in-law Martin Payne of Orange, TX; his son Russell Erickson of Shorewood, MN; his daughter and son-in-law, Kristen and Steven Briggs of Delmar, CA; his grandchildren Nicole Winscott and her husband Jay of Sweeny, TX; Abby and Allie Curtis; Rane and Christian Erickson, and Harrison Briggs; his great-grandchildren, Taylor, Tyler, Tatum, Chad, Cory, and Cale Winscott.
He was preceded in death by his parents, William and Ida; his brothers, James and Bobby.
Lloyd was born and raised in Memphis, TN where he developed his passion for music. He joined the US Army in 1955 during the Korean Conflict where he served with distinction in Germany. Upon completing his military service, he returned to Memphis where he started a delivery business and turned his passion for music into playing as a drummer in several bands.
He later moved to St. Francis, MN where he met and married the love of his life, his wife Lynn. They started their own glass repair business and during their many years in Minnesota and Arkansas indulged their mutual passion for travel. They managed to visit every state in the continental US, Canada and Mexico.
Lloyd and Lynn retired and moved to Arkansas where boredom and a love of children convinced Lloyd to drive a bus for the Paris, Arkansas ISD. After several years, they moved to Sweeny, TX and helped raise their great-grandchildren - and yes, he started driving a school bus for Sweeny ISD. In total he drove for eighteen years and earned his nickname - "Grumpy Grandpa" which was given with love.
He always had a bright, inquiring mind and had an interest in the ‘unusual' and took pleasure from experiencing new things and meeting new people. Lloyd had many passions - his wife Lynn, his children, grandchildren and great- grandchildren, his country, his music, trains and train trips, westerns and his love of god and the 1st Baptist Church of Sweeny and its congregation.
His Visitation at 10AM and Memorial Service at 11AM will be on Monday, April 15th at the 1st Baptist Church of Sweeny, 402 North Main Street, Sweeny, Texas 77480. In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made to Habitat for Humanity at www.habitat.org/.
