                                    Rest In Peace Stephen

Stephen Curtis - from Georgetown, Louisiana - was an assistant driller on the Deepwater Horizon.  Forty years old on the day the rig exploded (April 20, 2010), he left behind his wife and two teenage children. 
He was a 1987 graduate of Georgetown High School and had worked in the oil industry seventeen years.  He'd followed the footsteps of his dad, Howard Curtis, who served as a diver-welder for thirty-four years.
It is believed Mr. Curis died on the rig floor.
