Allen L Curtiss (July 7, 1936 to February 1, 2021) passed away at the age of 84 in Vero Beach FL. Al was a hardworking man of faith, integrity and solid convictions. Born in Ridley Park PA , Al graduated from Collingdale HS, where he stared on the gridiron. Al went on to serve in the US Army and graduate from LaSalle University before settling in Woodbury NJ, where he and his wife Floss began raising their family. Al worked for Bell of PA and AT&T, and it was through a promotion to AT&T Corporate Headquarters that brought the family to Succasunna NJ. Two of Al’s greatest professional accomplishments was helping start the MAIL Systems Management Association (MSMA) and sitting on the executive board for MAILCOM Conferences & Exhibitions. Al loved spending time in Sea Isle City, NJ. Following his retirement Al settled in Vero Beach FL.
Al is survived by his loving wife of 20 years Patricia, and his four married children: Allen (spouse Lynn), Charles (spouse Karen), Colleen (spouse Andy), and Steven (spouse Kelly). Known as G-Dad, he also leaves behind eight grandchildren: Rachel, Allen Jake, Lexi, Aiden, Cameron, Carly, Samantha, and Colton. He was preceded by his first wife Florence (Schwind) Curtiss and brother Joseph and sister Mary. In lieu of flowers the family ask that you all share a night together and enjoy the honor of each other’s company.
Our caring professionals are here to assist you and your family during this difficult time. We are available 24 hours, 7 days a week to assist in immediate arrangements or pre-arrangements.
The service from Millennium was outstanding. Rachel was sweet, personable and very comforting. It was important to me that my dad was kept locally where I knew where he would be. Very nice facility, state of the art and quality of my fathers remains were so refined compared to my mothers years ago. I highly recommend this place for an affordable choice for your loved one. Thank you for making an already stressful event easy. With high regards, the Esposito and Keith Family.
Millennium Cremation provided a fantastic service to our family at a difficult time. Our beloved mother passed away in Vero Beach and the rest of the family was in other parts of the country. Due to the Covid health crisis, none of us could get to Vero Beach in person. That's where Millennium took over. They helped us manage everything, coordinated with a cemetery in Maine, managed the obituaries, expedited all the paperwork, and even delivered an important document locally that saved us days. Funeral director Rachel was a godsend, and she made it clear what she was going to do, and what we needed to do. If you know what you want, Millennium is highly recommended, and the savings versus the full service mortuaries is significant.

Pat and family,
So sorry for your loss. I will always remember seeing Al on the porch in Fieldstone Ranch when I walked past the house.
He always had a big wave and a friendly greeting for the day.
Enjoyed reading about his wonderful life and loving family.

Dear Allen, Chuck, Colleen, and Steve,
I have so many wonderful memories of your mom and dad. Your dad sang for 2 very important events in my life, my installation as Worthy Advisor to the Prospect Park Order of the Rainbow for Girls and for my wedding in May 1981.He certainly had some golden pipes. I also remember lots of family get togethers at your home in Woodbury. I especially remember day trips to visit your mom during summer days when we were all out of school. I am so very sorry for this loss in your lives. May the memories of your dad help to bring you peace during this time of grief. God Bless, Jill Curtiss Patterson
