Clyde Curry Jr. was born on August 8, 1934 in Providence, Kentucky, to Clyde Curry Sr. and Mildred Wilson.
A man of integrity, he joined the United States Army and served in the Korean War until his honorable discharge in 1952. After serving, he moved to Indianapolis, Indiana, where he was employed at Chrysler Automotive as a Line Coordinator. He had a strong work ethic, winning the perfect attendance award for multiple years in a row, and retired after 43 years. It was during his time there that he met the love of his life, Barbara Bradley. They were united in holy matrimony on October 21, 1960. That union bore four children: Clyde T. Curry III (Betty Darlene), Tonya Massey (Terry), Kimberly Curry and Keith Curry.
In 1986, Clyde confessed his love for Christ at St. Paul Brightwood United Methodist Church.
Clyde dedicated his life to his family. He enjoyed being a father and grandfather and was proud to be called Pawpaw (Papa) by all 10 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and one god-grandchild.
He was such a jokester and could make you laugh consistently. When he wasn’t trying to bring everyone together, he spent his days golfing, fishing and begging Barbara to watch just one more movie with him.
Clyde peacefully departed from this life on January 25, 2020. He leaves to cherish his memory his wife of sixty years, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, god-grandchild, his two sisters Mildred Annette Clardy and Virginia Redman and a host of nephews and nieces.
