Curtis William Finney

September 13, 2022

Curtis William Finney, 48, of Cantonment, FL, entered eternal rest with His Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on Sunday, September 11, 2022, after a short illness.

Curtis was born on July 9, 1974, to Preston Finney and Billie Jean Finney in Mobile, AL, and grew up in Daphne, AL. After graduating from Daphne High School, Curtis went on to obtain a Degree in Business from the University of West Alabama, in Livingston, AL. Curtis spent most of his career in sales and banking, including the past 13 years at Navy Federal Credit Union in Pensacola.

Curtis was a passionate and devoted man. He loved his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and gave his life to Jesus as a young man. This one decision transformed his life. He loved his family with all his heart and wanted to spend as much time as he could in the company of his family. Curtis loved his church. He served in various churches as a layperson, teaching numerous Sunday School and Discipleship classes and was currently a member of Hillcrest Baptist Church in Pensacola. Curtis had a hunger for the Bible and was a voracious reader. Curtis loved the Alabama Crimson Tide. He was a fan in the championship seasons and in the lean years. He loved talking Tide Football with anyone who would give him an audience, including his “famous” call to the Paul Finebaum show. Curtis enjoyed playing golf. He played as often as he had the opportunity, playing alongside friends and strangers.

Curtis made a difference in the lives of thousands of people. He underestimated the impact he made, but everybody knew Curtis. He brightened the room with his wit and humor, gladly serving others with every opportunity he had.

Along with his parents, Curtis is survived by his wife Linda Cain, son Taylor Finney, and daughter Rylee Cain. He is also survived by a host of relatives, and friends all over the country.
