Henry Edward Curtis
November 27, 1944 to March 8, 2014

Henry Curtis, Lawson, MO departed this life on March 8, 2014 and entered
into a new life through his trust in the Lord Jesus Christ.  He had been
diagnosed with lung cancer 10 months ago.  Henry was born in Gallatin, MO
on November 27, 1944 to Paul and Irma Curtis.  He leaves behind Brenda,
his wife of 27 years, his daughter Deanna Love of Springfield, MO and three
grandchildren, Peyton, Dylan, and Annah Love.  He also is survived by two
brothers, David Curtis of Lawson, MO and Sam Curtis of Alvarado, TX and
four sisters, Kay Cecil of Chillicothe, MO, Martha Thompson and Pauline
Thurman, both of Malden, MO and Janie Hogan of Lock Springs, MO.  He
was preceded in death by his sister Sue Hacker of Gallatin in 1986.  Henry
worked in construction and industrial fields prior to becoming employed at
Kenworth Truck Company in 1968, working there until the plant closed in
1986.  It was then that he had the opportunity to go into business for himself.  
A self-taught and highly knowledgeable mechanic and auto body repairman,
he began Nee-Cee Motors as an auto repair shop before branching out as an auto dealership.  In order to help those
customers who could not afford to pay cash for a vehicle, he began his own finance company in 1996.  With his wife as
partner in the business, he strived to change the tainted image of the used car dealer by being honest, fair and accountable,
all of which led to the success of Nee-Cee Motors, even though it was "off the beaten path".  Helping people figure out why
their vehicle wouldn't "run right" was especially pleasing to Henry, even if they hadn't bought their vehicle from Nee-Cee
Motors.  Henry's well-known motto of "satisfaction is a must" came from his belief that each and every customer should be
appreciated.  The many customers who have expressed their sincere feelings of sorrow upon learning of Henry's illness is a
direct result of that belief.  Henry had a passion for speed which was realized in racing.  In the course of 14 years or more,
the business had a variety of circle dirt track race cars, each one built by Henry from the ground up.  In 2006, along with its
driver Jason Estes, Nee-Cee had 17 wins out of 34 races.  Henry's presence will be greatly missed by his family, including his
dog Ginger, and his friends, many who started out as customers.  He will be remembered for his integrity, his generous spirit,
his sense of humor and quick wit, his love for conversation, and his flash of a knowing smile.  Henry's request of no services
will be honored.
