Curtis Dale Conley, who was the first Catoosa mayor directly elected by voters, died July 28 of cancer. He was 75. A funeral was held Saturday at the Catoosa High School Activity Center under the direction of Kennedy-Amis-Kennard Funeral Service.Conley also was instrumental in persuading voters to approve a sales tax to build a library and community center, and he helped the city obtain grants to improve its water and sewer systems.CATOOSA — Getting under the hood of city government to make it run better wasn’t much of a leap, at least in principle, for Curtis Conley, a successful automobile mechanic. He also was one of the founders of the annual Route 66 Flywheelers show in Catoosa, and he was the curator and a board member for Catoosa’s D.W. Correll Museum.
Curtis Conley went from working on cars to serving as the mayor of Catoosa. He held the post for 18 years, helping guide the city through a period of growth. Conley died July 28 at age 75. Tulsa World fileConley, who spent 18 years as Catoosa’s mayor and more than three decades on its City Council, was equally comfortable when called on to be the face of his community.”If there was a water leak that needed fixing, he would get out in those ditches himself and do it,” his wife said. “He knew how, and if it needed doing, he would just do it.”He pushed a conservative fiscal policy and oversaw the completion of a new City Hall in the late 1990s — paid for, as he noted proudly, without having to pass a bond issue.
“We talk about whatever’s going on — anything from fishing to hanging,” Conley told the World. “We got the latest. We get it here before they get it at City Hall.”
