NEW CASTLE, Pennsylvania (MyValleyTributes) – David James Curry, 58 of New Castle, Pennsylvania, passed away Sunday, April 18, 2021 at the Good Samaritan Hospice in Beaver, Pennsylvania.
David was born in Salem, Ohio on January 31, 1963, son of James B. Curry and Myrna Kissinger Curry.
He was a graduate of the 1981 class at Springfield Local High School.
He had worked in the maintenance department for the SNPJ Borough and Recreation Center. David was blessed with having a job that he loved. SNPJ was more than just work. He was happiest socializing and visiting with all the residents, local and seasonal and they became his extended family. In addition to spending time at SNPJ, Dave was a member of the Mahoning Sportsmen’s Association in Hillsville, Pennsylvania where he could often be found riding his quad, canoeing, fishing, or camping with friends and family. While these memories will never be forgotten, perhaps what Dave will always be remembered for is his huge heart and willingness to help or lend a hand to anyone in need, you only had to ask, and Dave would be right there.
David is survived by his father, James (Shirley) Curry of New Middletown; sisters, Ann Ratliff of Columbus, Ohio and Karen (Joe) Sackin of Bessemer, Pennsylvania; nephew, Jo-Jo Sackin of Bessemer and nieces, Jessica (Bryan) Piccirillo of Edinburg, Pennsylvania and Ciara Sackin of Orlando, Florida, as well as many friends
David was preceded in death by his mother.
