Obituary for Stephen J. Curran Jr.

SCARBOROUGH – Stephen Joseph Curran, 80, of Scarborough, died peacefully on June 21, 2018 at the Gorham House.

He was born in Portland on July 10, 1937, the son of Stephen and Agnes (Conley) Curran. He graduated from Cheverus High School and served our Country in the United States Air Force for 23 years.

He married the love of his life, Grace Josephine (Sullivan), on October, 1970 at Holy Cross Church. He was employed by the U.S. Postal Service and the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, and was a member of the Knights of Columbus. Steve and Grace faithfully and lovingly helped the poor – serving in the Saint Vincent de Paul Soup Kitchen and the South Portland Food Pantry. He enjoyed fishing, sports, camping, traveling with Grace, and making pilgrimages to holy places of prayer.

Stephen J. Curran was a communicant of Saint Maximilian Kolbe Church for most of his life. He is remembered as a very quiet and humble man who inspired faithfulness, devotion, and merciful love to those in need – not only by showing constant compassion to the poor, but also by caring for his beloved wife, Grace, so devotedly. He is a great family man, a true man of God, remembered also for his wonderful sense of humor.

Steve is survived by his beloved wife, Grace, of Scarborough; son, Stephen, of Portland; sister, Judith, of Biddeford; brother, Timothy and wife Brenda, of Woolwich; as well as nieces and nephews. Also surviving are his sisters-and-brothers-in-law, Mrs. Eleanor Mitchell and Clarence Mitchell of Scarborough, and Mrs. Joanne Bodman and Walter Bodman of South Portland. He was predeceased by his sisters, Agnes and Louise.

The Mass of the Resurrection will be offered for Stephen J. Curran at 11:00 a.m. on Tuesday, June 26, 2018 at Saint Maximilian Kolbe Church, 150 Black Point Road, Scarborough. The Rite of Committal will follow at Brooklawn Cemetery, Portland. Arrangements are under the direction of the Conroy-Tully Walker South Portland Chapel, 1024 Broadway, South Portland.
