Eddie Lecil Curtis, 97 of Double Springs, entered into rest on Sunday, June 19, 2022 in Pearl River, Louisiana. On October 10, 1924, the second child of Silas and Pearl Curtis was born. Lecil grew up on a farm during the depression. At the age of 18 he married Clotield Cagle and a year later he was the father of a baby boy. Soon afterwards he was drafted into the army and served as a security guard at the Panama Canal. Lecil was fortunate that the war ended almost 2 years after he was drafted and he was discharged home soon afterwards to be with his wife and baby boy. He was eventually father to 5 more children, 1 girl and 4 boys. He had various jobs to support his family including farming and school bus driver. Students remember him fondly and called his bus “the Lyons Den” because it was so noisy. The most important thing in his life was God, and his favorite topic of conversation was the Bible. When he could no longer live alone, he went to live with his son in Louisiana who took care of his every need including saving him from many electronic complications. He spent his time, these almost 4 years, listening to preachers on TV and his Ipad, and watching his favorite programs on TV which were, Fox News, Jeopardy, Wheel of Fortune, and Price is Right. He was almost 98 when he passed on, and sometimes he was slow to find words to express himself, but he was very aware until the end. We will miss him for sure, but we are comforted knowing that he is now in Heaven. Visitation will be held on Saturday, June 25, 2022 from 1-2pm at Nichols Funeral Home in Double Springs, where services will be at 2pm. Burial will be in Pinetucky Baptist Church Cemetery in the Black Pond Community. Lecil is survived by his daughter, Phyllis Hand; sons, Jerry Curtis, Ronald Curtis and his wife Rose, Eddie Curtis and his wife Rubilyn, and Kevin Curtis; 11 grandchildren, Latricia Cyr, Greg Curtis, Valorie Garner, Matt Curtis, Cynthia Reynolds, Jerame Curtis, Bobby Curtis, David Curtis, Candace Cooper, Evan Curtis, and Desirae Curtis; and a host of great grandchildren, great great grandchildren, nieces and nephews.
