In Memory of Curtis James Ficarrotta
Curtis was an amazing father"” he is survived by his fiance, Tara Weber, their son Cameron Jace, aged 14 months, and Skylar Rae, their daughter-to-be, due this November. He was an adventurous soul, loved the outdoors, and lived his life without regrets. In his last year, he has found new purpose for life in his son, Cameron, and days before he died, he found out that he was having a new baby girl.
I know I speak for my entire family that the last 48 hours since losing him have been the darkest of our lives, and his loss has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled.
He also touched the lives of so many people throughout his short life. The outpouring of love and support for Curtis from his friends has been overwhelming, and have helped our family cope through these extremely difficult times. I'm setting this page up on behalf of Curtis, Tara, and their children.
We will be having a memorial service for Curtis on Tuesday, July 2 at 5pm at the Mt Charleston Lodge:
5375 Kyle Canyon Rd, Las Vegas, NV 89124
All donations will go toward support and educational expenses for Cameron and Skylar. In lieu of flowers or gifts, please make a contribution through his brother, Justin Ficarrotta, for the benefit of Curtis and his family, and we invite you to come to his memorial and help us honor him the way he has honored all of us.

Every waking hour without my little brother feels like my heart is being ripped out of my chest, over and over again. It's a hurt that feels like it will never cease, but to know what he's meant to all of you throughout the years is what brings me what little joy there is to find since his death.
The support that everyone has also shown on my brother's memorial page has been overwhelming. You've all brought me and members of our family to tears of joy more than once over the course of the day. I am forever grateful.
Finally, if you are in the Las Vegas area, Fox 5 News will be airing a piece on Curtis at 10pm tonight. For those of you out-of-state, the piece should also be available online tomorrow. I will provide a link to you all when I know more.

Curtis was such a great friend to my son. My heart aches for the family. You are all in my heart & in my prayers. Curtis always had a huge smile on his face & a laugh always followed. We will all miss him dearly.
There was one point in my life where you were a huge part of it. Since then you've been a great friend. You were an amazing dad and loving fianc and my heart hurts for Tara, Cameron, and Skylar as well as all of your family and friends. This just wasn't fair and I don't understand this...I never will...I'm in shock. You will be truly missed.
