Curtis Estil Hoover, 85, a native citizen of Jacksonville, Florida passed at Redmond Regional Medical Center on January 6th in Rome Georgia near his residence with his wife and only daughter in Aragon, Georgia, a place he called home for the past three years. Curtis was born February 16th 1936 to Curtis Estelle and Eulela Hoover.

Curtis attended Andrew Jackson High School and joined the army after completing his GED. During his eight year tenure in the military he found a passion for traveling, and made trips to Europe and throughout the United States. He was married to Juline Smith and had his only child, a daughter, Sharon Elizabeth Hoover. After military life, he remarried and he worked as a civil servant. He retired from the City of Jacksonville after 25 years.

Favorite pastimes of his were the New York Times crossword puzzles, comic strip books, photography, writing letters to his grandchildren, and playing the lottery. He loved oddities and had a loving spirit. Curtis was known as Granddaddy Hoo and stories of his dry humor at opportune times will be what is mostly missed about him among those who knew him and his family.

He is survived by his wife of 44 years, Jennie Simpson Hoover and daughter Sharon Hoover Tinnan (Donald Tinnan) of Aragon, Georgia, his grand children Candace (Clay) Foster, Curtis Williams, Cameron (Tori) Williams and Joshua (Brooke) Tinnan and six great grand children.
