Robert Lynn Curtis went to be with the Lord Saturday, November 11, 2023. Robert, known to everyone as Bob, passed peacefully at home in Eustis, Florida, with his wife and family by his side. Bob was born on August 13, 1946, in Jacksonville, Florida. Bob grew up in Uniontown, Pennsylvania but eventually moved back to Florida in 1988, then moved to the current home in Eustis, Florida in 1996.
Bob was the son of Helen and Donaldson Curtis of Uniontown, Pennsylvania who preceded him in death. Bob is survived by his wife Wendy Curtis, of 56 years, son Mark Curtis, daughters Beth TerBest and her husband Brian and Kimberly Limousin and husband Tony, sisters Martha Fell, Ruth Anne Sagosky and her husband Mike, and brother John Curtis and his wife Terry. In addition, Bob was also a grandfather to 9 grandchildren Russell Curtis and wife Erica, Timothy TerBest and wife Anna, David, Joseph, Branden, Troy, and Courtney, and two great granddaughters, Kelsey, and Lilliana as well as many nieces and nephews.
Bob was a veteran of the U.S. Navy and has been followed in the tradition by 3 grandsons. It was in the Navy where he began his lifelong career as an electronics specialist. He continued his education throughout his career installing smoke and fire alarm systems as well as security systems in places all over the United States. Using those talents did not end with his job. Bob continued to use his expertise for the Lord in his church as well as building churches while on mission trips to places such as Russia and Dubai, India.
Bob’s talents did not end with electronics, along with his wife Wendy he worked with youth in church throughout their married life. They built puppet ministries together which Bob continued to use during his mission trips when he was not busy wiring and building churches. Bob also enjoyed woodworking in his spare time, which was not much as he was always using those talents to help friends and family with home improvement projects.
At Bob’s request, he will be cremated and taken back to Pennsylvania where most of his family resides, for celebration of life service that will be held in the spring at Jumonville Glen.
