Obituary of William Curry

William Curry, affectionately known as Bill, passed away on February 18, 2024, at the Lafleche and District Health Center at the age of 78. He was surrounded by his loving family.


Bill is survived by his sister, Shirley Walters, and nieces and nephews: Beth Tallon, Brenda (Paul) Heine, Blair (Marlene) Curry, Hal (Renee) Walters, Marla (Paul) Mayes, and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents, Robert "Bob" and Mabel Curry, his brother Stan, sister-in-law Lorna Curry, and brothers-in-law Jack Tallon and Roger Walters.

Born on October 11, 1945, in Lafleche, Saskatchewan, Bill was the youngest son of Robert and Mabel Curry. Though formal schooling was not easy for him, Bill pursued self-education with determination. He developed a passion for farming while working alongside his father and brother Stan.  He had a deep affection for dogs, often befriending strays.

In 1978, Bill and his parents moved into Lafleche, where he became an integral part of the community. He cherished the time spent with his mother, Mabel, especially their bus trips together. After his father's passing in 1988 and his mother's in 2003, Bill continued to engage actively in the community. He resided in Wheatland Lodge from 2002 until he required additional care in 2022, when he moved to the Lafleche and District Health Centre.

Bill will be fondly remembered for his countless miles travelled around town on his scooter, a familiar sight to all who knew him. The family extends their deepest gratitude to the people of Lafleche for their unwavering kindness and support towards Bill throughout his life.

In his memory, the family reflects on the words: "Heaven is a place where all the dogs you ever loved come to greet you."

A private family service will take place at a later date.
