Donald “Don” Curry, 50, was born to Willard and Dorothy Curry at the old Collins Hospital in Turlock. He died Thursday at his home in Denair.
He attended local schools and graduated from Turlock High in 1978. He also attended MJC and CSUS. He spent much of his working life in construction, the last 15 years as Director of Construction of JKB Homes.
Don spent his life in perpetual motion. He was on the diving and cross-country teams in high school, and he had a passion for golfing. Most recently he took up kite-boarding. He touched many lives, always offering his help to anyone. He loved to entertain and was the consummate host.
He was a member of Turlock Golf & Country Club, E Clampus Vitus, and for four years in his younger days he was a reserve fireman for Turlock Fire Dept.
Don is survived by his sons, Dane and Dustin Curry, and siblings Dean, Sherrie, Denise, and Dan (his twin) Curry. He was preceded in death by his parents.
A visitation will be held on Mon., Oct. 3, from 1 to 7 p.m. at Turlock Funeral Home.
A celebration of Don’s life will follow on Tues., Oct. 4, at 2 p.m., also at Turlock Funeral Home.
