John Charles Curry (Noots), born Sept. 4, 1949, passed away suddenly at his home in Houston, Texas, Saturday, Oct. 12, 2013. John attended Christ Our King Elementary School and Salesianum High School in Wilmington and went on to graduate from St. Edwards University in Austin, Texas. He was an avid member of the Knights of Columbus and was employed at Alexander Ryan Marine and Safety. He worked in the maritime industry for 38 years, although he would rather have been golfing than working.
He is survived by his wife of 25 years, Robi Curry; his daughter, Bethany; his brother, Mr. and Mrs. Robert Curry of Rehoboth; his sisters, Mrs. Patricia Gentile of Wilmington, and Susan Ademski of Austin, along with many nieces and nephews. He was loved by many and will be missed by all.
A memorial service and reception will be held at Earthman Bellaire Funeral Home, 6700 Ferris St., Bellaire, Texas, from 2 to 5 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 19. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the American Diabetes Association.
