Dennis D. Curry passed away from his mortal body Oct. 19, 2019 at his home with his wife of 38 years, Rosie, nearby. He had been waging a valiant battle against cancer for many years and multiple surgeries to which he finally succumbed.
We will celebrate his life at 3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, 2019 at Walker’s Landing in Gun Barrel City.
There will be another celebration starting at 3 p.m. Nov. 9, 2019 at Willie’s Lounge on E. Beacon in his hometown of Dallas.
Dennis was preceded in death by his mother Maurene Tatum Duckworth and step-father Leonard Duckworth, who lovingly referred to him as “Menace”.
Dennis was a native Dallasite, who graduated from Lake Highlands High School and attended Southern Methodist University. He loved sports of all kinds, but especially the Dallas Cowboys. He had a passion for planes, frequently visiting friends at the Athens Airport and going to air shows every chance he could.
Although he had no children of his own, he loved Rosie’s son and daughter Carolee Cain Cross of Gun Barrel City and Adrian and wife Marcia Cain of Santa Cruz, Bolivia.
Surviving are a very special nephew Darrell and wife Gayle Smith on board the yacht “Gone Bamboo”, somewhere in the South Pacific, along with seven grandchildren and many beloved close friends.
