Allan Curtis Death, Obituary – We are sorry to inform you that a very beautiful person who was a part of our carnival community has died away. Our hearts are filled with sadness at the news of his or her demise. Allan Curtis passed died after living 83 years, which was a long and productive life.
Because of the contributions he made, the Midsomer Norton Illuminated Carnival is not the same as it was before; in fact, it would not exist in its current shape if it were not for him. He was not your typical Joe.
Our carnival was revived in 1975 after being put out of business 14 years earlier owing to the efforts of a small local community led by Allan, who served as the driving force behind those efforts. Our carnival was brought back to life thanks to Allan’s leadership.
It didn’t take him very long at all to work his way up to the position of first Chairman of our modern carnival association, and once he got there, he put in a lot of hard work to make sure that the idea became the fully functional organization that it is today.
Allan served as Chairman of our carnival for a period of fourteen years and continued to have an impact on our event for a significant number of years after he stepped down from that role. During this time, he offered perceptive advice and contributed first-hand experience to the creation of our history page.
During the entirety of his time in that position, Allan held the position of Chairman for a combined total of 14 years. We owe an incredible amount of gratitude to Allan since he has left us with such a wonderful carnival legacy and because he has worked on the Midsomer Norton Carnival for well over 40 years of his life.
His aspiration motivates the generation that comes after it, and the generation that comes after them will take inspiration from it in order to drive the generation that comes after them. His desire stimulates the generation that comes after it. Thank you, Allan. Rest in peace.
