   Mike was the first son born to Robert and Viola (Carter) Curtis on July 26, 1948 in Danville. He was one of five children and grew up in the Danville area, attending Danville Grade Schools and DHS. Upon completing school, he enlisted in the US Army and served during Vietnam. As a youth, Mike enjoyed playing baseball and was a fan of music, even picking up on how to play the guitar. As he grew older he continued his love of music and guitar and became an Elvis and Johnny Cash fan. Mike also enjoyed spending time with his siblings, nieces, and nephews.

He also leaves behind his caregiver and best friend Tony Ramirez; no one could ask for a better friend than him.
