Bowdoin-David Allen Curtis, 56, of Bowdoin, died unexpectedly on August 21, 2013.
He was born on June 13, 1957 to Guy A. Curtis,Sr. and June N. Curtis.
David enjoyed fishing, hunting, camping and all outdoor activities. He loved spending time with his family. He would always tell stories about the family fishing trips we took to the Allagash when we were all growing up. He enjoyed his trips to Lake Ontario with his friends. He enjoyed hiking Baxter State Park with his brother Guy. He loved all of his nieces and nephews and was so proud of all of them. He lived vicariously through them. He loved his great niece, June-Anne. Dave was so helpful and handy with his hands. He could take anything apart and put it back together again with no problems—in fact, as a child he would take his toys apart and put them back together again. He was very inquisitive as to how they worked. Dave was so helpful. He would be the first one to volunteer to help with any project. He certainly did his share of helping with his brother’s and sister’s projects. We could be heard saying “Hey Dave, can you stop by the house to look at … this or that” and he would be right dodown. Dave enjoyed boating and tubing also. He loved that boat. Dave loved his girl Roxie (yellow Labrador) and she misses him so much! Dave took Roxie everywhere with him. You almost never saw Dave without Roxie with him. He spoiled her with toys and lots of love.
David earned his Master Burner Technician degree in 1979 from SMVTI. He started his career at Eastern Oil in Portland and worked the last 20+ years at Dead River. Dave recently started his own business “Dave’s Burner Service”.
He was predeceased by his father Guy A. Curtis Sr., and mother, June N. Curtis.
David is survived by his brother Guy A. Curtis II and his wife Kim Curtis, sister Jean (Curtis) Duchesneau and husband Bob Duchesneau, nieces and nephews: Bobby Duchesneau, Heather Curtis, Nichole Duchesneau and Matthew Curtis, a great niece, June-Anne Curtis.
