James Wilson Curry

James “Wilson” Curry, 63, of Curry, Louisiana, passed from this life on Monday, May 14, 2018. He was born August 26, 1954 in Winnfield to the union of Phillip and Lois Curry. Wilson lovingly served his Lord and Savior as a Deacon at Georgetown Baptist Church. He was a Master Mason and worked in the Petroleum Industry his entire life. He was an avid duck hunter and loved those early morning hunts. His true passion was to spend time with his family and his best friend and wife, Karen, of 45 years. Lovingly known as “Bop” by those dear to his heart, he was a gentle giant with a heart as big as he was. He never met a stranger and loved to reminisce whenever he had the chance.

Masonic graveside services followed at 1 p.m. at the Crossroads Cemetery, west of Tullos, under direction of Southern Funeral Home of Winnfield.
