Ronald Elliott Curtis

Ronald E. Curtis, age 67 of Easton, beloved husband of N. Susan Slagle, passed away peacefully surrounded by his loving family on Tuesday, July 18, 2017. An Easton resident for the last 30 years, Ron was a retired public defender in Bridgeport. He was a graduate of Andrew Warde High School and Long Island University, and received his law degree from Suffolk University. Born in Bridgeport, he was the son of the late Robert and Doris Curtis. He leaves behind his loving wife of 35 years, Susan, and their two beloved children: Steven A. Curtis, of Burlington, VT, and Jessica L. Curtis and her husband, Ryan S. Tougias, of Norwalk; a brother, Michael Curtis, and his wife, Maura, and their three sons, of Trumbull; a sister, Nancy Wertheim, and her husband, Joseph, of Framingham, MA. He loved jazz music, and often attended festivals in Newport, RI and Burlington, VT. His greatest joy in life was time spent with his family and friends. Every year, he would count down the days until their family vacations on a sunny shore. Ron was a fun, warm and caring individual who was liked by everyone. He was a wonderful husband, father and friend.
