Curtis "Curt" Lee Arnold
Oct 7, 1945 – Sep 12, 2015
Curtis Lee Arnold passed in his home on September 12th, 2015. Curt was born on October 7th, 1945 in the Seattle area to his loving parents, Barry and Margaret Arnold.
Curt attended Queen Anne High, and graduated from Edison Tech. His talents in the auto industry landed him a Junior Partner position at the young age of 22! He soon became the very well-known and deeply loved proprietor of the Marqueen Garage on Queen Anne hill for over 40 years.
Curt’s easy going style and his passion for cars, boating, diving and fishing remained a constant throughout his life. He was active in the Everett Sounders dive club in his younger days, and never missed those crazy fun-filled cold and wet Cod fish derbies on Puget Sound. Curt could often be found at the garage after working hours helping Queen Anne kids with their cars. This included his own son who helped out around the shop as a teenager and later worked along beside his dad for many years. When not at the shop he could be found cruising and fishing the waters of Puget Sound and beyond with his wife Betty, or at home tending his garden and his beautiful Begonias.
Curt was one of the good ones that went all too soon. He will be deeply missed by many and forever in the hearts of his wife Betty Durand, his sons Tony and Scott Arnold (Josie), brothers Richard (Joan), Bruce (Kay) and Gary (Judy), sisters Carol (Pat) and Barbara, and extended family and dear friends.
