Larry Gene Curry, 77
Larry Gene Curry, 77, of Martin passed away at his home on Sept. 4, 2019, surrounded by family.
Larry was born to Russell and Florence (Knight) Curry on Aug. 22, 1942.
He joined the Air Force in 1962 where he served four years as a firefighter, stationed in Bossier City, La. He worked for General Motors for 30 years until his retirement.
On April 17, 1964, he married Sharon (Chick) Martin, whom survives, and they spent the next 55 years together.
He is also survived by his children, Brenda (Bobbie Jo) Ritchie and David (Julie) Curry; grandchildren, Adam (Jen) Dill, Morgan Dill, Garrett Dill, Tanner Curry, Cayden Curry, Teagan Curry and Zoie Ritchie; great-grandchildren, Brantley, Ryker, Grayson and Isabella; and his siblings, Jerry, Shirley and Jack.
He had two favorite pastimes, mowing the fields behind their home with his 1949 tractor and watching his children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren playing sports. The sport didn’t matter, the child playing was what mattered.
He is preceded in death by his parents and two brothers, Russ and Bob.
It is Larry’s wishes to be cremated with no visitation or memorial. If you wish to donate in his honor, please donate to Wings of Hope Hospice in Allegan or Martin High School Athletic Boosters.
