OBIT CurtisLowell Roy “Sonny” Curtis, 73, of Sandy, passed away Nov. 12, 2013.

He was born Feb. 6, 1940 in Burns, attended school there, and graduated from Burns Union High School. After enlisting in the Army, where he served in the 114th Airborne Division as a sharpshooter and paratrooper, he attended Treasure Valley Community College, where he learned to fly.

On April 24, 1965, Roy married Pamela Davidson. Soon after the birth of son, Troy, and daughter, Tamera, the family moved to Sandy, where their daughter, Tracy, was born. Roy lived in Sandy for nearly 38 years.

In 1975, he was baptized as a Jehovah’s Witness, and was active in the ministry. With retirement, he raised cows and goats, puttered, had the occasional trucking trip, and took an active part in his grandchildren’s lives.

He is survived by his wife, Pamela; son, Troy Curtis; daughters, Tamera Curtis and Tracy Curtis-Trevillyan; grandchildren, Brandon Bennett Curtis, Kasey Bennett Curtis, Destiny Curtis, Cleopal Trevillyan, Tysen Curtis, Tyler Curtis and namesake D’Artagnan Lowell Curtis; great-granddaughters, Hailey, Natalie and Arainna.
