1957 CURTIS 2024


August 23, 1957 — March 6, 2024

Curtis Lynn Hardnett, a talented chef and ordained minister, has bid farewell to this world, leaving a legacy filled with the aromas of his culinary creations and the warmth of his spiritual guidance. Born on a summer day in 1957 in Dallas, TX, Curtis brought joy to many through his flavorful dishes and comforting presence.

His journey began at Pinkston High School, where he laid the foundation for his future culinary and spiritual endeavors. With a laid-back and quiet personality, Curtis approached life with a sense of calmness that touched all those around him. Outside of his professional life, he found solace in going to church and sharing his love for cooking with others.

As a chef, Curtis's proudest accomplishment was not only mastering the art of cooking but also using his culinary skills to bring people together. Whether it was a simple yet delicious dish or an elaborate feast, he poured his heart into every creation. Alongside his culinary pursuits, Curtis dedicated himself to the service of others as an ordained minister, providing comfort and guidance to those in need.

In the hearts of those who knew him best, Curtis will forever be remembered for his kindness, wisdom, and unwavering faith. While we mourn his passing, we also celebrate the beautiful life he lived and the countless lives he touched along the way.

A viewing will be held at the Golden Gate Funeral Home and A Crematory in Dallas on March 15th from 10:00 AM to 8:00 PM. A Celebration of Life event will follow on March 16th from 3:00 PM at the same location. As we say our final goodbyes to Curtis Lynn Hardnett, may we find comfort in knowing that his spirit will live on through the memories we hold dear. He may have left this world, but his legacy of love and light will continue to shine brightly in our hearts.
