Grandpa Curtis was a marvel. I love reading what my mother wrote about him: I always thought my father was a really handsome man. He was fun, and he loved outdoor activities. He liked hunting, fishing and sports. He played baseball on teams for the companies he worked for. We would to go to watch him play ball. Sometimes we watched plays like Shakespeare, at an outdoor theater, and he liked to do that. Dad had a good singing voice and often sang in quartets.
