Keith W. Curit, 63, of Biddeford, died Sunday, April 21, 2019 at Southern Maine Health Care in Biddeford. He was born on March 26, 1956 in Biddeford to William and Stella (Guillette) Curit. A remarkable man who lived a full and resilient life with cerebral palsy, Keith graduated from Biddeford Adult Education in 1982. Beloved by his friends and caregivers, he was known for his joyful spirit and for being “handi-capable” rather than handicapped.
Keith enjoyed reading, followed all Boston sports teams, and was an avid fan of Biddeford Tiger athletics. He was adept with his computer, founded the business KC Enterprises, and received weekly Communion with his neighbors. Family was of paramount importance in his life; he had a special relationship with his siblings and his mother Stella Curit who passed last year.
He is survived by three sisters, Diana Pinard (and husband Albert) of Biddeford; Linda Littlefield (and husband Christopher) of Cumberland; Cynthia Berube (and wife Annette Beaulieu) of Biddeford; and one brother, Brian Curit (and wife Karen) of Biddeford; nieces and nephews Christopher and Kathleen Pinard, Rebecca Littlefield, and Maria and Joseph Curit; great nieces and nephews Kierra, Trista, and Bryce Berube.
The family extends a special thank you to Dan Belanger, who was like a brother to Keith and whose care of Keith allowed him to stay healthy and enjoy his life, and to Support Solutions whose care allowed Keith to live independently at home.
