Curley was born September 5, 1935 in Alden, Kansas to Forest and Ora (Johnston) Mellott, and passed away with his wife Rachel at his side, on Tuesday, April 9, 2024 at his home in Enid.

He married Rachel Tatro on June 15, 1974 in Maize, Kansas, and they made their home in Conway Springs, Kansas. He worked as a Production Supervisor for Mack Energy, which required several moves; they moved to Great Bend, Kansas on June 15, 1975, eventually moving to Enid December 15, 1986 to take over the Oklahoma and Kansas field. After his retirement in 1998, he kept busy hauling pumps for Skip Moon. Curly enjoyed working in his yard, listening to country music and spending time with his family. Known to be a jokester, he was always up for pulling a good prank.

He is survived by his wife of 49 years, Rachel, of the home in Enid; five children, Bobby Mellott and wife Marnie, Harper, KS; Carolyn McClaflin and husband Dallas, of Kingman, KS; Tommy Mellott and wife Angela, of Springdale, AR; Kim Ryel and husband Glen, of Enid; Kip Strate and wife Kris, of Rose Hill, KS; 18 grandchildren, Michael, Melissa, Tim, Kellie, Julie, Tori, Jarrod, Andrea, Gabriella, Daniella, Michelle, Hannah, Shauna, Jesse, Jake, Molly, Shelby, and Shanae; 31 great-grandchildren; 7 great-great grandchildren; a sister, Harriet Ward and husband Richard, of Chase, KS; as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
