Five months prior to his death last September at age 85 of cardiac arrest, Curtis apparently changed his will to leave his entire estate to his trustee and widow, Jill.  Curtis named all five of his living children in the will, adding the statement: “I acknowledge the existence of my children…and have intentionally and with full knowledge chosen not to provide for them.”

One of Curtis’ daughters, Kelly Lee Curtis, reportedly contested the will in court, but was denied.  His widow released a statement saying that Curtis’ last will and testament “and his passing wishes are private family matters.”

Curtis also had a son, Nicholas, who died in 1994 from a heroin overdose at the age of 23.
