Obituary

Curtis Allen Flatt of Farmers Branch, TX was born on January 9, 1938 in Waco, TX to Rouster and Fannie Allen Flatt.  Curtis bravely and with a sense of humor, endured a decade of Parkinson’s disease and vascular dementia. He passed away peacefully to his heavenly home on October 13, 2020 at the age of 82.

Curtis was a graduate of Texas A&M University and was in the United States Marine Corps Reserves.  He belonged to several professional groups, enjoyed researching genealogy, was a docent in The Farmers Branch Historical Park and was active in his sons’ youth soccer teams, both as a soccer coach and as a soccer league officer.

In 1956, Curtis met his future wife, Carol Saunders Flatt, at Waco High School and they married in 1959. They moved to the Dallas area in 1966 where they’ve made their home for 54 years and reared their three wonderful children, Lisa, Darren, and Logan.

Curtis was preceded in death by his parents and his son Darren, who died in 2016. Curtis is survived by his loving wife of 61 years, Carol; daughter Lisa Huffman (Keith) of Frisco, TX; son Logan Flatt (Iris) of Dallas, TX; daughter-in-law Christina Flatt of Carrollton, TX (Darren).  He is also survived by five grandchildren, Kristen Huffman Avans of Edmond, OK; Bradley Huffman of Frisco; Savannah Flatt of Dallas; Andrew Flatt of Carrollton; and Laili Flatt of Dallas, and by two great grandchildren, Heidi Avans and Adeline Avans of Edmond, OK.

The Flatt family would like to thank all of the Associates and Staff of Brookdale Assisted Living of Farmers Branch for the loving kindness and care they gave Curtis over the past four years.

Curtis Flatt was laid to rest on October 20, 2020 in Oakwood Cemetery, Waco, TX in an immediate family only, graveside service during the ongoing global pandemic. The Reverend Aaron Zimmerman, Rector of St. Alban’s Episcopal Church, Waco, officiated.

    Curtis was my first friend when I moved into my house in Farmers Branch in October, 2007. When I would be outside in my yard, he would talk to me over the back fence. He was a very kind and helpful neighbor. I inadvertently caused him to have to do a little clean up on his side yard. When I had the overgrown crape myrtles removed, they revealed a little shed he had built on the side of his house. He had to do some repairs and painting but he laughed about it saying I had exposed his unkempt workshop. He loved to watch my two little dogs play. The first time, he thought they were fighting. The little Yorkie, Benny would come running out to attack Siegfried,the little Schnauzer. Then before he knew it, Benny was on the bottom with Siggy on top. It made Curtis laugh every time. We
    discovered that we had a common interest. The finding, wandering, and documenting old cemeteries. With all his many interests and services for the community performed, he really made the world a better place. Love to Carol and all his beloved family. Curtis set a good example for all and will be missed by all who were lucky enough to know him.

    I was looking at some old records I have and came across the name of Curtis Flatt. Just out of curiosity, I did a quick inquiry on the internet and learned of his passing. So sad. I wish I had kept in touch. I am his cousin. He and I share the same great grandfather, Leasel Flatt. Years ago in 1987 we had a serious discussion about his son’s school project – the Flatt powderhorn. The family tree that showed the path of how he obtained it is what got me to looking today. He temporarily loaned it to me at that time. We both graduated from Waco High School in 1956. I am a little late but I bid my love and farewell to you Curtis.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
