Curtis faced a long-term illness with courage, always maintaining a positive, happy demeanor and was an inspiration to many people.  He worked in the oil field in South Louisiana, in the North Sea and Libya.   He was a purchasing manager for Baker Oil Tools in Houston and “retired” to a chicken farm in Arkansas.  He and his wife then traveled full time in an RV for 7 years, spending one year in Anchorage, Alaska.  His love for travel never stopped, and he visited 48 states and all the Canadian Provinces. He loved to fish and play cards and is now enjoying the greatest adventure of them all.

Chauvin Funeral Home and Crematory, INC. is honored to serve the Champagne family.
