Where do I start. This man was an icon at Silver Bluff/ Pigeon Valley. For years he done his daily walking around the parking lots.He had a tremendous faith and he was not ashamed to raise his hands and praise God. He loved his Lord. He is Gonna be missed but I have to smile because I know Curtis is in his Happy Place, Heaven with his Lord and Savior.

We loved Mr Curtis. He was a wonderful friend to my grandfather, Joe Church Sr , who lives at Pigeon Valley and passed away May 2016. He was always kind to us and my children. I enjoyed how much he loved the banana pudding I brought over!! He even would ask me sometimes. What lovely memories he leaves. I am so sorry for your loss. I’m sad to know I won’t see him here again. God bless you all.

I will always cherish my memories of Curtis. He always gave me a smile, a big hug and told me he loved me every time I saw him. He was a blessing to everyone he came in contact with. He will surely be missed but I know he is rejoicing with his Lord.

Curtis Clubb was a dear friend whom I met at Pigeon Valley. His room was just down the hall from my parents. Mr. Clubb and I had many wonderful talks about farming, the Bible, and imagining what Heaven is like. I only hate that I saw his obituary after the date of his services. I certainly would have attended. Mr. Clubb was so much like my sweet father, Mack Green, who passed two years ago at age 95. He and Mr. Clubb both had January 21st as their birth dates.
