This undated photo provided by the family shows Stephen Ray Curtis. Curtis, 40, was killed in the April 20, 2010 Deepwater Horizon oil rig explosion. An assistant driller on the Deepwater Horizon, Curtis followed in the footsteps of his father, who was a diver-welder. At the time of his death, the son had been in the oil industry 17 years. The Marine veteran was a member of the Georgetown Volunteer Fire Department and had also served as an officer with the Grant Parish police department. Curtis was a fan of NASCAR, especially driver Jimmy Johnson, and loved baseball and bow hunting for deer and turkey _ passions he tried to share with his son, Treavor. Curtis' co-workers said his turkey call was so realistic, they half expected one of the birds to land on the rig. He left behind a wife, Nancy, son and a daughter, Kala, who had given him his first grandchild shortly before the explosion. For his memorial service at Georgetown Baptist Church, the family asked that everyone wear camouflage in his honor. (Courtesy of the Curtis Family via AP)
