Elder Curtis, who served in the Second Quorum of the Seventy from April 1, 1990 to Aug. 15, 1995, died Dec. 19. He was 86.
President Monson was among those who honored Elder Curtis' life during a funeral on Dec. 27 in the Valley View 8th Ward, Salt Lake Holladay North Stake. Elder Russell M. Nelson and Elder M. Russell Ballard, both of the Quorum of the Twelve, were among participants in the service, as well as many family members.
"He was my troubleshooter," President Thomas S. Monson said during the funeral. "I knew I could send him anywhere and he could solve problems. ... Anything you wanted him to do, he would do it and he would do it well."
