Mr. TURNER. Mr. Speaker, today I'm here to honor and pay tribute to a
dear friend of mine who has been valiantly battling cancer for the past
year, Dan Curtis. Dan is a long-time resident of Dayton and a pillar of
the community, and he has committed his talents to improving the lives
of countless Ohioans.
A dedicated volunteer and philanthropist, Dan has given generously of his time, expertise, and financial resources to make a difference in the lives of individuals and the quality of life in his community.
He joined the Dayton Development Coalition soon after its inception and dedicated his efforts to stimulating the region's economy, while embracing the Air Force as a member of the community, and improving the lives of airmen.
Dan helped shepherd our community through good times and bad by selflessly giving of himself and his resources. He has always enjoyed working with people and assisting them in reaching their goals, and in no place is that more evident than in his home. Dan is a devoted husband and father who enjoys the loving support of his wife, Amy, and children, Kevin, Chelsea, and Matthew.
His relationships are characterized by selfless devotion, a caring nature, and altruism. These traits carried over into his professional life, where Dan demonstrated an incredible work ethic, generosity, contributions to the community and his love of the country. His many achievements and qualities are a testament to Dan.
As a community, Dayton, Ohio, and Wright-Patterson Air Force Base are forever indebted to him.
