Oliver Curtis Battle, also known as “Curt,” was born on June 13,1955 in Cape Charles, Virginia to the late Beatrice Battle and Opel Durey. Curt departed this life on Sunday, August 23, 2020 at Peninsula Regional Medical Center in Salisbury, Maryland at 1:43AM.

Curt attended Northampton County School before transferring to Cape Charles High School, where he graduated in the year of 1973. He attended Chincoteague Community College, where he joined their basketball team. He was always willing to give orders, Curt loved working and was always moving around. He worked at a head start program in town before working on the railroad as a laborer. He was later promoted to track foreman, supervising many workers under the management of Greg Parks. In 2010, Curt was promoted once again, as Track Inspector, working a total of 40 years of service. He came out of work due to an automobile accident that forced him into retirement. Curt was hardworking, kind, and shy. His love-able spirit will truly be missed.

In 1977, Curt met and married the love of his life, Louise and this union was blessed with one daughter.

Curt later attended and joined Gaskins Chapel A.M.E. Church in Savageville, Virginia, where he served as a Trustee for many years. He was a member of the Pride of Virginia Masonic Lodge where he was a Worshipful Master.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Beatrice and Opel and a sister, Carrie.

He leaves to cherish his memories: his devoted and loving wife of forty-three years, Louise Battle; two children, Malieka Battle (Justin) and Oliver Wiggins; seven sisters, Roise (Joseph), Ella (James), Dora (Elder Vincent), Audrey (Christopher), Carleen, Paulette, and Arelia; one brother, Alexander; one sister-in-law, Lorraine(Ronnie); six grandchildren, Da’Vion, Ly’Zhane, Malik, Akhi, Winter, and Elijah; two great-grandchildren, Da’Mauri and Da’Meir, he was also happily awaiting the arrival of his third great-grandchild, Chase; children he raised as his own, Anthony, Tricia, Shonda, and Zatoria; close friends, Percy and Ilene, who were very dear to him; one god-sister, Lula; one godson, Zody; and host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives, and friends.

Louise and Family

Praying that the Lord will hold you close and comfort you in the days to come and that you will be strengthened by the love of family and friends.
I will always remember Curtis as that little cute boy growing up here in Cape Charles. I always thought a lot of him. When I moved back to the Shore, he had grown up and was such a well-mannered young man.

May God bless each of you.

We are so sorry to hear of Curt's passing. I have missed our conversations at the office ( Railroad ) and knew Curt for
30+ years. May he rest in peace and know no more pain. Prayers to the family.
