Condolence & Memory Journal

I was saddened to hear about Mr. Curran's passing. I had him in Jr. High School in science (Astronomy) and thought he was a great teacher. He was very articulate and showed patience and possessed excellent teaching skills. My thoughts and prayers are with his family as I offer my sincerest condolences.

Dear Georgette, Son and families,
Just heard about Kerry. I am so sorry to hear of his passing.
I hold dear memories of him from high school to bumping into him in the neighborhood, we always managed to have a chuckle about one thing or another.
His beautiful light always shined through his gentle soul. God Bless.

George, Maureen, Nancy and family

My sincere condolences on hearing of your loss. The North End did turn out some quality people and Rock was one of the best. St. Charles, the Class of '68, Woonsocket and the world are a little poorer today.

My deepest sympathies to Georgette and Kerry's entire family. I know the "Rock" got as tired as I did when butting heads on the defensive line for the Villa Novans.
The class of 68 has lost another good one.

I want to give my deepest sympathy to Mr. Curran's family. He was an amazing Mentor, Teacher, and Coach! He taught me how to play field hockey when I was in middle school. He was someone you could always count on to give you guidance and look at life in a positive way. He will be greatly missed...I'm truly sorry for your loss.
