Curtis loved cooking, fishing, traveling, going to the thrift stores, and gathering collectibles. Everyone knows that Curtis was the grill master, but most of all he loved his wife and daughters. He was a father figure, brother, uncle, and a friend to many. Curtis never met a stranger.

    To The Family of Curtis Bosley Jr.

    May you be strengthen by those of us that love and support you in your grief. Curtie (Fred Hammond) was an amazing husband, Father,Son,Sibling,Uncle, cousin,Christian and Friend. I’ve been thinking about how much joy I’ve personally had just being his presence. Our private joke was me calling him Fred Hammond, he’d always laugh and say Miss Shirley. I can’t ever remember a time he wasn’t smiling and cracking jokes.
