Curtis Arthur Sexton, age 77, of Greenfield, Indiana passed away on Tuesday, November 22, 2022 at his residence surrounded by his loving family. He was born in Colson, Kentucky on May 5, 1945 to parents; Lawrence and Loretta Sexton, who preceded him in death. Curtis attended Greenfield High School. In 1965, Curtis heroically served our country in the Army fighting the war in Vietnam where he was awarded a Bronze Service Medal. He served until 1967. Shortly after his return to the United States, Curtis met and married the love of his life, Judy (Devitt) Sexton on May 31, 1970. They recently celebrated 52 years together. Curtis was a hard working construction worker and he retired from Homes by Rex Brown. Curtis was a down to earth, fun, loving man who put his family first. He enjoyed sitting in his rocking chair on the porch listening to good old classic country music, like the legendary Loretta Lynn. Curtis loved to dance, he could out dance everyone around him. He was a member of the VFW and the American Legion. At home you would find Curtis watching Ancient Mysteries on The History Channel and game shows like Wheel of Fortune and Deal or No Deal, he always seemed to know which case was the winning one. He enjoyed playing cards and going to the Casino. He was a lover of bread and butterscotch and cinnamon candies. His favorite food was Beef Manhattan’s and if he happened to forget his glasses he would tell the waitress “I’ll have what she’s having”. Curtis was always ready to go on any adventure, even though he would sometimes ask,``where are we going?” He was happy to go wherever. Curtis made many wonderful memories with Judy going on their trips to Pigeon Forge and dining on “Frickin’ Chicken”. Curtis enjoyed going fishing and hunting, especially for deer. If you were around Curtis, you would always hear him humming or whistling or answering you with a “yeah” and “yeah buddy”. He was always happy. His family fondly described him as “lovable and always fun to be around”. Curtis touched so many lives and will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
