Curtis was born to union of Deborah M. Mobley-Harden and Larry D. Perry.

Curtis attended South Bend community schools as well as Ben Davis High School in Indianapolis, Indiana. To know Curt was to know he loved to get dressed or “get fresh”, joke, dance, wrestle, and breed his dogs. Curtis took great pride in nothing more than being a father to his three children, giving each of them their own special nicknames Butt-Butt, Pooh-Pooh, and Baby Sister. Curtis loved spending time with his family, hanging with his friends and being the life of any party. Curtis was loved by everyone that knew him and there was never a dull moment with all that knew him. “EVI-VA-DENT-CHA-LEY” knew that. 

Curtis would give you the shoes off his feet (literally) and the shirt off his back if you needed it. Curtis will be remembered for his smile with or without his GOLDS and the love he had for his family. Curtis would bust a dance move where ever he stood. Curtis will also be remembered by the many names given to him by his family and friends: “Pimp C”, “The Eastside Landlord”, “One Love One Thug”, “Bissell Street Ambassador”, “Mr Two Step” “Gold Mouth”, and “The Trill-Evil-Side Legend “. 

Curtis leaves to cherish his memories his Mother Deborah (Joe) Mobley, Father Larry D. Perry, his three children Ty’Shawn, Cariss, and Camyah Perry, Grandmother Frances Harden, his life partner Dawnsha Lauderdale, his siblings Derrick (Demicka) Perry, Larry Perry, Tewanna Perry, D’Anndra  Lewis, Jasmine Lewis, Rainey Davis, Rahjean, Taylor, Angelic Taylor and Mellisa Taylor. Uncles included Joseph Harden, Michael (Regina) Wright, Barry (Clara) Perry, Ronnie (Michelle) Perry, Lamont Perry, Jerry Perry, and Eddie Perry. Aunts include Lisa Perry, Diane Perry, Crystal Wilson, and Tracey Bass. Two special cousins Kevin Williams and Dareen Diggins, along with a host of family and friends.
