Helping Families and Friends Honor Their Loved One

Curtis Amon Venable, age 61

Curtis Amon Venable, age 61, of Cabot, Arkansas passed away Saturday, December 2, 2023. He was born in Forrest City, Arkansas on September 30, 1962. Curtis is preceded in death by his parents Carl and Jackie (Parker) Venable, 2 sisters and 2 brothers.

Curtis loved to golf, go fishing, finding treasures at flea markets, garage sales and auctions. He loved riding his motorcycle and sitting on his back deck with a beer listening to music.

Curtis was an EMT for over 30 years. He worked at MEMS before working for Angel Flight at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. Recently, he had started working at Building Bridges in Cabot as their Transportation Manager.

Curtis was loving and kind. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it and also if you didn’t need it. He rarely said no when someone needed help. He enjoyed road trips to Texas and California to visit family and friends.

Curtis is survived by his wife of 26 years, Angela; children Robert (Holly), Nathan, Jacob, Sara and Joseph; granddaughter Jade; sister Susan Hassell (James); brother Carl (Laura); along with numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and uncles who loved him very much and will miss him greatly.

    So sorry to hear about Curtis passing. Prayers with you Angela and family. I worked with Curtis for a number of years at Angel One, the description of Curtis in the obituary is spot on of Curtis. He will be missed. I am not sure I will make it to the service, just know that you and the family are in my prayers.

    Curtis and I were dispatchers together at Angel One, and he was always one of my favorite partners to work with. He was so kind, generous, and thoughtful. He never came to work without a new snack or treat to share. He would fix our computers, he would share movies, and share treasures that he would find at flea market or yard sale. If he knew we had a craft or hobby, he would look for great deals for us. He was always thinking about everyone else. My heart is sad, and my prayers go out to all of his family and friends, his loss is a great one, and he will definitely be missed.
