It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Curtis Farrow, September 11, 2005, at home with his family around him after a long courageous battle with cancer.
His great sense of humour and constant teasing stayed with him until the very end. He loved fishing, hunting, and camping in the wilderness every chance he had. The bush was his home.
Curtis had many, many friends — far too many to name and he loved them all dearly.
Curtis was born April 20, 1958, in Cranbrook, BC. He graduated from Mount Baker High in 1976 and worked in the area until 1989, then moved to Barriere, BC, to work as a loaderman at Blue River. Then moved to Avola, BC, in 2003 and moved back to Cranbrook in April, 2005.
