Tony Curtis would have approved-Your Funeral Guy

Tony Curtis would have approved of his funeral, a celebration of life. All in all the fneral was a celebration. One could tell from the eulogy given by his wife Jill.

Curtis’ sixth wife, Jill Curtis, eulogized her husband of 12 years. She recalled how he easily dismissed their 45-year age difference when friends asked if he was worried about keeping up with a younger wife.

“Well, if she dies, she dies,” she said her husband would deadpan in reply.

She recalled his simple loves: Krispy Kreme doughnuts, Splenda, his dog and white clothes. She urged family and friends to dwell not on his death, but on his extraordinary life.

“He was, as one fan put it, a once-in-a-lifetime man,” she said.

The funeral was followed by the burial and then a reception for more than 100 invited guests at the Luxor hotel-casino on the Las Vegas Strip.

Jill Curtis, who Curtis affectionately called Jillie, told The Associated Press her husband would have approved of the festive goodbye.

“Tony didn’t like funerals,” she said. “He didn’t want to make it funeral-y, more like a celebration.”
