Obituary - David Allred's brother

Curtis Glenn Allred, 79, of Greensboro, died on Monday, October 4th, 2021, at Moses Cone Memorial Hospital.

Born on April 30, 1942, Curtis was the son of Maggie Ruth and Glenn Charles Allred. He was one of four children and the oldest son. He attended Sumner High School where he met the love of his life, Joyce Faye Allred. Curtis and Faye were married for 61 years and spent 20 of those years working side by side at Curtis Automotive Service. Curtis was a self-taught Master Mechanic and was known for being an honest and generous man. He was President of the Independent Garage Owners Association and served on the Board upon the opening of the Guilford Technical Community College Percy H. Sears Applied Technologies Center. After retiring in 2004, he spent his days loving his family and friends, helping his neighbors, and rescuing cats.

Curtis is survived by his family who admired and adored him, his wife Faye Allred, his daughters, Sherri McCluskey and Michelle Goins and their husbands Garry and Frank, respectively; grandchildren, Brooks McCluskey (Sammie Jo), Adam McCluskey (Olivia), Arthur Goins (Emma) and Maggie Goins; great grandchildren, Elizabeth, Camden, Ruthie, Caroline and Avery; sister, Sylvia Payne (Eugene) and brother David Allred (Diane). Besides his parents, he was predeceased by his sister, Jane Dixon.

His family warmly invites you to join them on Sunday, October 24th at 2 p.m. at Centre Friends Meeting for a Memorial Service to honor his life. A reception and visitation will follow.

In his final days, Curtis expressed his love for his family, recognized the gift of good friends and gave thanks for a good life. May we all honor him by carrying on his gift of actively showing love to others. In lieu of flowers, you are welcome to send a donation to the Humane Society of the Piedmont  at https://www.hspiedmont.org/
