ObitEli's obituary was published in the Rochester Sentinel on 29 March 1906:
Eli CURTIS, formerly owner of the ERIE restaurant in this place, died at his home at Hammond, about 6 o’clock this morning. For several weeks Mr. Curtis, who owns and conducts the Erie restaurant near the depot at Hammond, had been having trouble with the range of his place of business and Tuesday morning after trying many plans to remedy the defect, went to the roof to clean the chimney. On the roof, by the means of a brick tied on the end of a rope, he began to loosen the soot. In pulling up the brick it caught and it took a pull of his greatest strength to loosen it. The brick loosening suddenly, caused Mr. Curtis to lose his balance and he fell backwards off the roof of the three story building. In the fall Mr. Curtis turned almost completely over and alighted on the concrete sidewalk, thirty-five feet below on his head and shoulders. Men passing saw the fall but were helpless to do anything to save him. When they reached him he was unconscious, and was taken to the hospital where he expired this morning.
Mr. Curtis had many friends in this city. He was a good, jolly fellow, and took well with the public in general. He conducted the Erie restaurant in this place for about six years and four years ago moved to Hammond. He was about forty-five years of age and leaves a wife [Clara CURTIS] and daughter, Grace [CURTIS]. The funeral will be held at Athens Sunday at 11 o’clock.

31 March 1906 The body of Eli CURTIS, who died at Hammond Thursday, will be taken through here Saturday on the Erie, eleven o’clock train, to Athens, where the funeral will be held Sunday.

Monday, April 2, 1906 The funeral of the late Eli CURTIS was held at Athens Sunday morning at eleven o’clock. The floral offerings were very beautiful, and the funeral was very largely attended. The services at the grave were conducted by members of the Rochester tent of Knights of the Maccabees, there being about thirty present.6 
Death*He died on 29 March 1906 at Hammond, Lake, Indiana, at age 41; buried at Hoover Cemetery.2,7
