Christopher P. Curtis, Sr., 87, of Keansburg and formerly Union Beach, passed away on Friday, May 29, 2020, at Bayshore Medical Center, Holmdel. Christopher was born on December 31, 1932, in Jersey City, an only child, living in Bayonne until moving to Union Beach in 1991. He worked for Anheuser-Busch as a foreman. Prior to working for Budweiser, he was the owner-operator of R.J. Cleaners in Bayonne. Chris was a member of the Ancient Order of Hibernian's, Division 2 of Monmouth. He enjoyed traveling to Ireland and having a Guinness. In his younger years, Chris enjoyed playing semi-pro baseball, tennis, and playing in the Budweiser Olympics, camping, and his greatest love was spending time with his family. Christopher was predeceased by his parents, Pauline (nee D'Agostino) and Christopher Curtis, and sons Kenneth Curtis in 1991, Brian Curtis in 2011, and Paul Curtis in 2014. He is survived by 4 of his 7 children, Catherine of Brick and Theresa Ashmore (son-in-law Brian) of Matawan, and Christopher, Jr., and Arthur (daughter in-law Virginia), both of Middletown with four grandchildren, Sarah, Samantha, Jessica and Alfredo; and many cousins and extended family members. Due to the current corona virus crisis, the Curtis Family would like everyone to know that despite their desire to have everyone pay their respects, a private visitation will take place for immediate family only and the burial will follow at Holy Cross in North Arlington. The arrangements are entrusted to the Jacqueline M. Ryan Home for Funerals, 233 Carr Avenue, Keansburg, New Jersey 07734
