Curtis Bert Hunt of Cuba, Missouri was born on October 9, 1957 in Danville, Illinois to the union of Bert H. Hunt, II and Doris M. (Urbanski) Hunt. He left from this life surrounded by his family on Friday, April 15, 2022 at the age of 64.
Curtis graduated from Dixon High School. Curtis, at the age of 14, along with his two siblings were diagnosed with Muscular Dystrophy. His two siblings passed away at an early age, but Curtis was a fighter and persevered for many years! He would inherit the nickname “Curtis Lowe” from his friends, because of his height when he was in his wheelchair, and playing the bass guitar. He would always go wherever his friends went and his friends would even lift him on their backs! So he could join in with the fun and be by the river, or wherever else his wheelchair wouldn’t go. The Wheelchair was a challenge to Curtis for 34 years. He always called himself “ Jerry Lewis’ Old Gizzer”
Curtis enjoyed playing the bass guitar and painting. Many enjoyed his hand painted bulbs and glass paintings. He loved playing video games with his daughter Scarlett Rain. He always was spending time with his family, friends, Step Daddy Rob, and his fur-babies.
Curtis is preceded in death by his parents Bert H. Hunt, II and Doris M. (Urbanski) Hunt. Two siblings Terry Hunt and Sandy Hatchel. Father-in-law Alfred W. Hunt, and Mother-in-law Maxine Louise (Nolin) Hunt. Daughter Heather Joy Hunt.
Those who are left to treasure his memory and to continue his LEGACY, are his loving wife and best friend Tina Louise Hunt of Cuba; four children, Scarlett Rain Hunt of Cuba, Ivy Davis of Cuba, Caleb and Alison Davis of Riverside, California.
Also Holly Brumback of Phoenix, Arizona; one granddaughter Dakota Brumback of Phoenix, Arizona; one sister Gail McAleer of NC and her Family; one brother-in-law Dan Hunt of Cuba; His beloved Aunt Marie Lazzell, also her Sons and their Families of Danville, Illinois; Two Nieces, Stacey, Heather, and great niece Harley.
