Roland P Curtis

February 4, 1951 ~ August 31, 2023 (age 72) 72 Years Old


“And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”       Revelation 21:4 

 Roland Philip Curtis was born on February 4th, 1951, in Washington, DC to the late Sylvester Curtis and Maggie Lavernia Wright who preceded him in death. Roland departed this life on Thursday, August 31st, 2023, due to a long-term illness.  

Roland was the 2nd oldest of 9 children. He attended Prince George’s County Public Schools. At an early age, Roland met the love of his life, yes, love at first sight, Thomasena Chancey, a true Southern Bell from Mullins, SC. They were married for 51 years and raised 2 children George and Mary. 

Roland was employed by the Prince George’s County Office of Central   Services supervising the county’s mailroom, where he worked for more than 30 years.  He received many certificates of appreciation and recognition awards throughout his working career. 

Roland loved chartered fishing boat trips with family and friends, cooking, gardening, cookouts, traveling, detailing cars, and watching NFL football games. 

Roland was baptised as one of Jehovah’s Witnesses on February 15th, 2009, in Salisbury, NC. He experienced spiritual assignments given to him in the congregation with the greatest eagerness and steadfastness down to the end. He also, from his heart, loved giving to others his time, energy, and  finances more than receiving anything in return.  

Roland leaves to cherish his memory a loyal and devoted wife, Thomasena Curtis, his daughter Mary Johnson and son, George Curtis both from      Maryland. He also leaves behind his grandchildren: Kiara, Kevin, Kayla, and Devonte, his 9 great grandchildren, his mother-in-law, Alice Evans of SC, 3 sisters: Phyllis Sumter of MD, Tima Lucas (Edward) of MD, Donna Lee Curtis of MD and a host of other family and friends.
