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.
