Curtis Leonard Brookfield

Curtis Leonard Brookfield of Orlando, Fl. Passed away on Friday, June 30, 2023. Curtis was a loving husband, father, grandfather, son, brother, and friend to all. He was born in Camp Lejeune, North Carolina on October 26, 1962. Curtis married the love of his life Sonya Brookfield 38 years ago. They went through every day struggles as a couple. Leading them to find the Retrouvaille community that helped them enrich their marriage. Which taught them techniques on how to grow in their marriage, faith and love for one another. They loved the community so much they decided to give back by getting fully involved in the program. Saving marriages for the last 28 years. Curtis has been an inspiration to many men and women throughout his entire life. He was involved in the men’s club at his church, St. Andrew Catholic Community. He loved being with his community by serving coffee and donuts after mass on Sunday’s. Curtis was a hardworking man up to the very end. He was in the construction industry and a very hands-on type of guy. Curtis was a man of many talents who wore many hats. 

He is preceded in death by his Father (Charles Brookfield). He is survived by his wife (Sonya Lynn Brookfield) 4 Children (Corey Brookfield, Sadie Durning, Candace Brookfield, and Corene Brookfield) Mother (Charlene Brookfield) Brother (Carl Brookfield) Sisters (Caroline Brookfield, Colleen Bruhn, Claire Bednar, and Christine Brookfield) and 2 grandchildren (Jaiden and Noah Brookfield). Of all Curtis’s talents, the one he mastered was the role of “Papa”. His favorite thing at the end of the day was watching the sunset with his “partners” (Jaiden and Noah). We love you forever Curt, Dad, Papa, Son, Brother, and friend to all. Until we meet again in paradise.

The family will be receiving friends on Thursday, July 6, 2023 from 6:00 pm until 8:00 pm.  The vigil will  be held at 7:00 pm with Deacon Don Warner.  The funeral service will be held at 10:00 am, Friday, July 7, 2023 at St. Andrew Catholic Church  with Father Leo officiating.

I heard the news about Curtis. I can’t even begin to understand what you are feeling, but I wanted to let you know that I am praying for you and your family during this difficult time.

Words can not express what and how I feel about Curtis. He was always friendly and kind and helpful.
He loved the roll he fulfilled at Retrouvaille and his community.
He will forever be in our ๐Ÿ’•. Otis and Julia Fleeton.

Curtis, even though we were not blood, you were a big brother. I will forever hold you dear in a special place in my heart. Much love and prayers to those that loved him! The Stevens/Moya Family.

Curtis will always be on n our heart. I still recall him telling me when he hugged a person he would give them a kiss on their shoulder. It was special. God be with you all!

I can't thank you enough sharing of the kiss on the shoulder. I tried commenting when I was half asleep and it came out as gibberish.
these little special moments will go far as the grandkids grow and we can explain to them who their grandpa really was.
