Curtis’ Dream. “Driving towards Kindness and Understanding”
My brothers and I grew up in the quiet neighborhood of Steveston B.C. about 35 minutes from Vancouver. A family of five, just like many others, our family was one of dynamics. Curtis being by far the most energetic of the bunch.
Curtis grew up playing sports and a vast group of his friendships came from baseball and hockey. He was an accomplished soft ball pitcher and a goalie for his hockey teams.
After high school Curtis began working with the family business at Legear Pelling Insurance. Many clients remember Curtis as an approachable conversationalist with the “gift of the gab”. He knew his stuff and was proud to deliver service to those with insurance needs. He was hard working and driven at his job.Read More
