Curtis Allen Quick
September 16, 1958 – January 3, 2019
Curtis was born on September 16, 1958, to Bill & Dorothy Quick. He grew up in Marsing, Idaho, where he attended school from 1st through 12th grade. Curtis played football for two years in high school, but his bigger passion was baseball - which he played throughout his school years. He was a graduate with the Class of 1976.
Curtis had a great love for music - mostly rock n roll - but also enjoyed some country music, mainly Garth Brooks. He knew how to play guitar and had dreams of one day playing in a band. Curtis loved to hang out with his friends and play pool - he was quite good at it. He really enjoyed watching football. His favorite NFL team was the Pittsburgh Steelers and his favorite college team was the Boise State Broncos. He loved conversing over the phone with his dad about the games. Curtis would go to the Sprint Boat races in Marsing every chance he got. He actually had the opportunity to ride in one of them and thought that was the greatest experience ever. He also spent a lot of time at Firebird Raceway watching the drag races. If it had anything to do with speed, Curtis loved it!
Curtis loved people in general and was quite the conversationalist. He would call his aunts, uncles, friends and cousins and talk for hours.
Curtis passed on January 3, 2019, from natural causes. He is survived by his father, Bill Quick of Caldwell; mother, Dorothy Quick of Caldwell; sister, Shelma Quick of Caldwell; a daughter, Colleen Lancaster of Utah; and a niece, Nicole Gelinas of Port Orchard, Washington. He was a great son and brother and will be missed greatly by all who knew him.
