Erik Albert Curtis, 49, of Buda, Texas was promoted to heaven on August 29, 2020. Tari, his beloved wife of 17 years was by his side. Erik was born March 15, 1971 in Louisiville, Kentucky to Karen Elizabeth (Wessel) and Raymond Albert Curtis. In addition to his wife Tari, Erik is survived by their six children: Taianna (18), Angel (17), Amber (16), Cesar (16), Blake (13), and Mason (13).

Erik spent the majority of his later adolescence in Kansas where he graduated from Hiawatha High School in 1989. Erik and Tari moved to Texas in 2006. Ever faithful, they have been members of the Fellowship Church at Plum Creek for 10 years. Erik felt the true calling of God to help lead those from hopelessness to celebration through the Emmaus Community. Erik was always very active; he enjoyed hiking, camping, and anything outdoors with Tari and the kids. Erik also made time for running and basketball with friends, and loved Ninja warrior challenges. Erik also leaves behind his supportive Walmart family of 13 years. Above all else, Erik loved God and his family. Erik was known for his giant heart, gentle way of leading others to Christ, and his never-ending smile. As a man of God with a generous spirit, Erik was an organ donor and even in death has given the gift of life to others.

Erik is preceded in death by his parents, his Godfather Uncle Frank Wessel, his cousin Olivia Grossnickle, his grandparents: Albert and Lucille Wessel; Albert and Mildred Curtis. A Celebration of Life will be held on Friday, September 4, 2020 at 10:30 at the Fellowship Church at Plum Creek.
