Curtis Perry Dawson, known to his friends and family as Curt and only Curtis when in trouble. Curt, beloved husband, father, papa, and stranger to no man, woman, or animal, drew his last breath on Wednesday, December 11, 2019. Curt was surrounded by his wife Donna, daughter Tiffany, son-in-law David, and baby brother Ricky when he left this earth.

Curt was born on November 9, 1946 we believe in Piggott, AR since both his brothers were as well, but no one can be certain. He stayed in the Northeast, AR area until he moved to Conway to attend UCA. While getting his Master Degree in Psychology in 1976 he met the love of his life and much younger (9 years his junior), Donna McCorkle. They had one precious, rebellious, independent and doting daughter.

Curt spent nearly 30 years at the City of Little Rock in Human Resources, after "retirement" he became a full-time Uber driver and cheerleader for his grandkids, Eden and Landon and handyman and housekeeper for Donna, Tiffany and David. Curt's personality and demeanor meant that he made new friends everywhere he went, most frequently at Walmart and Walgreens!

Curt was a lover of life, to see him without a smile was rare. He loved his family (including fur babies) more than any man could and did just about anything they ever needed.

The family will be celebrating Curt's life with a Memorial Service on Saturday, December 14 at 2:00 p.m. at Keypoint Church - South, 1404 Chester Ave., Springdale, AR. In lieu of flowers please consider donating to Willard Walker Hospice, 325 East Longview St., Fayetteville, AR 72703.

I still can remember pledging under Curt while we were in college. A great guy then and I am sure the same as his family grew. Condolences to the family.

Curt and I worked together for many years at the City of Little Rock. Curt was a very loyal, faithful, kind, considerate co-worker. He was a true professional and was well-respected throughout City Government and with those with whom he worked outside of City Government. His passing, much too soon, leaves a vacuum in the lives of all who knew him. He was an old and dear friend.
