Curty was a member of American Legion Post 14 of Bainbridge, the Eagles 1325 of Greenfield, VFW 4736 of Greenfield and the Ohio Operating Engineers. He was a laid back man that enjoyed the outdoors from the time he was a small child. He spent hours along the banks of Paint Creek hunting arrowheads, fur trapping, but mostly doing what he loved most fishing with his kids and grandson.
He loved his pets and loved working on his ’66 Mustang. He was also a lifetime Bengals fan. He got a big kick out of teasing his grandkids and buddies in good natured fun. Curty always put others before himself. He will be remembered in his children’s and grandchildren’s hearts as their hero.
Funeral services will be held 7pm Monday March 6, 2017 at the SMITH-MOORE-EBRIGHT Funeral Home of Bainbridge with Rev. David Maughmer officiating. Friends may visit with Curty’s family from 5pm until the time of service.
