Mr. Curran retired in 2017. A family-oriented man, Russell, would make sure to be with extended family for special occasions; Christmas, birthdays, weddings, vacations etc. Hanging out with his brothers and sisters and having a few beers was something that made him happy. He enjoyed electronics, taking them apart and putting them back together (sometimes a little modified). In retired life working in the garden and around the yard were his main hobbies. Spending time with his grandson was his greatest joy.
Russell spent his remaining years caring for his wife who was in failing health. He was a provider, a Husband, a father, a grandfather, a son, a brother, a friend. A very smart man who many would come to for some technical issuers to be resolved. This earned him the nickname “The Grand Imperial Wizard of All Things Great and Small”.
Russell will be missed. He goes to join those who left before him. His parents Edward (Bud) and Helen (Pat) Curran. His siblings Patsy , Daniel Curran and Nancy Moen. His son Ian and grandson Russell. Pain is over Paradise awaits. Rejoice in the sorrow of losing this good man.
