Curtis Wilson eulogised as mild, disciplined
Curtis Wilson, Caribbean Communications Network’s (CCN) former content director was remembered for his “human mildness,” attention to detail, and his long and meritorious service to the media. His life was celebrated yesterday at the Church of the Nativity, Crystal Stream, Diego Martin.
Wilson, 57, died at home on January 7. He worked in television in T&T for 38 years. Integrity Commission chairman and former chairman of CCN TV6 Ken Gordon, head of news at CCN TV6 Dominic Kalipersad, and Fatima College’s class of ’75 were among those present to say goodbye to a former colleague and friend.
He was remembered as the former president of the Lupus Society, a member of Fatima College Club ’75, founding member of TV6, and an employee at state-owned T&T Television. The Fatima class of ’75 sang the school’s song in tribute to their former classmate.
Bernard Pantin and Wilson’s brother Earl delivered the eulogy. “There is a lot we can learn from the life and exploits of Curtis Stanley Wilson: the value of discipline, the attention to detail, the zero tolerance for sloppy work and, above all that, the importance of putting others above self,” Pantin said. He leaves his mother, Sybil, brothers Herbert, Earl and Julian among those to mourn. Wilson was interred at Lapeyrouse Cemetery.
