Curtis Allen Harold

December 8, 1952 ~ April 13, 2018 (age 65)

Deacon Curtis Allen Harold slipped away from us Friday, April 13, 2018. He was born December 8, 1952 to the late Eva Inez and John Powell, and biological father, Curtis Pace. Deacon Curtis grew up in Princess Anne County in an area called Burton Station in the current city of Va. Beach, VA.

Deacon Curtis attended elementary and high school in Va. Beach, VA. He was a comic and kept everyone laughing all the time. He was the tallest person in school and everyone looked up to him for his leadership. He was associated with the business department, prom committee and Distributive Education Club of America (DECA). He graduated from Bayside High School in 1971.

With over five years of military experience in the United States Army, Curtis traveled the world. He completed 32 years with the Department of Defense specializing in Military Logistics, Operational and Information Technology, where he designed an aircraft for the federal government. When he resided in St. Louis, as an Inventory Management Specialist, he was selected out of a group of 57 people to travel to Southeast Asia to support Operation Desert Storm.

He joined the United House of Prayer for All People of Burton at an early age. During all of his traveling, he remained a faithful member of the U.H.O.P.  After Missouri became his home, he was installed as a deacon at the Missouri U.H.O.P.  He returned to Burton U.H.O.P. and continued to work in the church as a deacon and later became the chairman. He served in many positions: church office staff member, pastor’s offering collector, banking committee, and security guard for the office staff. Deacon Curtis achieved high achievements as a “G” class worker.

His favorite saying he would tell his family and friends at many of the gatherings at his home, “Ya’ll Black folks go home and take your children with you.” As a cashier for the deacons selling in the kitchen, he would say to Lil Ruth and Geneal, “Ain’t it time for you to go in service.” For all the women relatives with weave he would ask, “Do those horses know ya’ll got their hair?” If you were fussing about things that did not concern you, he would ask, “What’s your address?” There was never a dull moment with Curtis because you never knew what he was going to say.
