Robert David Curran passed away suddenly at Kingsway Nursing home on November 20th, 2019, surrounded by his loving family. Born in Simonds (Saint John) on October 19, 1943, he was the son of the late Robert and Annie Curran.
Dave was a graduate of Simonds High school. He was employed at the Irving Refinery for 32 years and continued to enjoy coffee with several of the alumni after his retirement. In his teen years he was an air cadet and earned his pilot's license. He enjoyed cars all his life, was a member of the Saint John Sports Car Club and never missed an opportunity to drive. He was a volunteer with Meals on Wheels. He played badminton, tennis, and loved camping and hiking with his family. He was delighted to spend time with his 6 grandchildren.
Dave was gathered to the Lord's name at 46 Landsdowne Ave. His Lord, his Bible and his faith brought him joy and peace.
