TEXAS CITY —
May 13, 1976 was a special day for Vinessa Curtis. She was blessed with a handsome baby boy, A’mon Sherrod Curtis in Galveston, Texas. He was natured and loved by his family. He was taught the golden rules which remained with him all his life. He was also taught to love GOD and was reared as a Christian from an early age. He attended his family’s church, Progressive Missionary Baptist Church in Galveston, TX, where he was baptized.
A’mon was called “Famous Amos” by his family and friends. He was a product of the Texas City Independent School District. He left his mark on the basketball court with his teammates’ mighty “TC Stings”. He was a proud graduate of Texas City High School Class of 1995.
Amos had a strong work ethic which was displayed for several years as property engineer manager at the Escape Resort. He was a very dedicated worker, currently at Genesis Biotechnology Group. He gave diligent service until his passing.
Amos left an indelible impression on all who encountered him. He enjoyed spending valuable time with family and friends. He also enjoyed fishing, BBQ cook offs, and sports. His favorite sports teams were the L.A. Lakers and the Miami Dolphins.
