God Has Called Home Another One of His Flock; Reed made his short trip to heaven on Sunday, November 18, 2018. “Reed” was his middle name but chose to be known by that his whole life. Anyone who called him by his first name, Ivon, was someone who did not know him well. Please take a moment and share a fond memory or kind expression of sympathy for Reed’s family at www.andersonbethany.com.

Reed was born in Roswell, NM, on November 24, 1955, to Ivon J and Billy Christine Clements Curtis. Reed grew up to love the outdoors. He enjoyed hunting, hiking, skiing, camping, and was a certified scuba diver. He also was a very skilled gymnast, able to do continuous backflips, to the amazing of most.

Reed was a graduate of Goddard High School in 1973, attended New Mexico State University for a semester, then joined the Navy and served as a torpedo man aboard the submarine, USS Sculpin, and then served his final obligation in the Naval Reserve. Reed was a member of the Disabled American Veterans. He never married and lived his remaining years in Roswell.

Preceded: Reed was preceded in death by his father, Ivon J. Curtis; and mother, Billy Christine Clements Curtis.
