Mr. Curtis Arlton Waldrop Jr., 77, of Lumberton, TX passed away on Monday, July 6, 2020.
Curtis was born in Port Arthur, TX on August 19, 1942 to Curtis Sr. and Mildred Waldrop. He has been a resident of Lumberton for over 45 years and even built the home he raised his family in with the love of his life, Linda. Curtis and Linda were married holding hands and spent a lifetime of love holding each other up. Linda was the light of his life and truly gave him direction. There is nothing he would not do for her and he always took care of her every want and need. The best dad to his kids, he always gave them support in any way they needed it. Curtis loved unconditionally and was always there to help; whether that was with his wife, his children, grandchildren, or friends, he was always there and would never judge those who confided in him. Those who knew him would describe Curtis as gentle, kind, a great listener, and the hard-working “Mr. Fix It”. He could tackle anything and liked to stay busy. If it wasn’t working on machinery, he loved to be outdoors hunting and fishing with his beautiful bride. Curtis attended Woodcrest United Methodist Church in Lumberton for 15 years and had a special place in his heart for the church, even serving as an usher there. Curtis was a unique, compassionate man and he will be missed and cherished by all who knew him.
Left to cherish his memory is his loving wife, Linda Lee (Hubert) Waldrop; son, Gary Waldrop and wife Katherine of Lumberton; daughter, Sherry Waldrop of Beaumont; grandchildren, Bailey Ann and Beau Winton Waldrop; brother, Glenn Ray Waldrop of Lumberton, as well as many extended family and friends.
He is preceded in death by his parents, Curtis Arlton Waldrop Sr. and Mildred Virginia (Haley) Waldrop.
