Curtis Brown (WB4KZL)
September 22, 2003
Born in 1940 and licensed at the age of 9, Curtis was a ham almost his entire life.
Amateurs from the mid-Atlantic region may know Curtis from when he worked at EEB (Electronics Equipment Bank) in Vienna, VA, and after it closed down he moved on to the Ham Radio Outlet stores in Woodbridge, VA and Salem, NH.
He retired in the mid-90s to Jacksonville, North Carolina, where his wife Penny - KD4BPR, works for the USMC at Camp Lejeune. He leaves behind his wife, three sons, three daughters, 17 grandkids, and a lot of ham friends.
Curtis, you were a great Elmer, a good friend, and I regret not staying in touch with you over the years. Hope to see you again someday.

Curtis was a "Ham's ham " who enjoyed conversation and fellowship with like-minded individuals. I always appreciated his sense of humor, and his desire to pass on the magic that embodies amateur radio, to the new guys. I pray that you are now working the final "rare one", Curtis.

One of truly good guys I had the pleasure of knowing during the time I spent in the DC area. Curtis will be missed by many. Rest In Peace, my friend.

Curtis was a good friend. I met him at EGE, Inc in Woodbridge, VA when I got my novice license in the early 80's. A short time later, I went to work with him at EGE. We worked closely until I left the company a few years later. We were able to keep in touch off and on for several years. I had the honor and priveledge to call him a good friend. I'll miss you.....
