Curtis was born January 20, 1973, in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Ernest and Judith (Marshbanks) Kocerha. He graduated from SangreDe Cristo High School in 1991. He continued his academic career graduating from the Arizona Automotive and Diesel Academy with an associate’s degree. Later, Curtis obtained his CNA certification through Aims Community College.

He married Shelley Renae Horton on August 2, 1996, in the Denver, Colorado Temple. Six children were born to this union.

Curtis was a Jack of all trades including but not limited to knowing farm hand work, acting as a shuttle driver for a car dealership, employment with John Deere as a parts associate, and his service as a CNA/Burn tech. He also had experience as a truck driver and worked as a laborer at Panhandle Coop.

He was member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He was also a former member of the Monte Vista Ambulance Service and the Center Volunteer Fire and Ambulance Service.

Curtis kept busy doing many activities outside of his work. He was very giving of his time and talents. He enjoyed volunteering for the Greeley, Colorado Farm Show, attending auctions, camping, fishing, and shooting. Family time was cherished by Curtis, and he especially liked opportunities to share his love for the outdoors with his children. He took the time to tinker on cars with his children, teaching them helpful mechanical skills. Curtis was often conversing with people. His company would soon get a taste of his sarcastic and sometimes twisted sense of humor. He was a jokester and lovingly teased people.

Survivors include his wife, Shelley Kocerha of Torrington; children, Michael Kocerha, Brock Kocerha, Karissa Kocerha, Troy Kocerha, and Jayson Kocerha; daughters-in-law, Brook Kocerha and Adriana Kocerha; grandchildren, Sariah Kocerha, Dustin Kocerha, and Lander Kocerha; aunts, Lois Anne Bradshaw, Edith Marshbanks, and Wanda Kocerha; niece, Felisha Kocerha and her children; along with other extended family members and friends.
