Charles T. Curry

Charles Thomas Curry, 89, passed away at Bothwell Hospital on February 24, 2020. He was born in Longwood, Missouri on April 24, 1930 to Carl David and Beulah Rose Craig Curry. He was married to Mildred F. Kindle on January 7, 1953.

He was a graduate of Houstonia High School and was an Army veteran of the Korean War. He was an excellent typist and excelled at learning other languages. These skills got him assigned to Tokyo, Japan for a time at General MacArthur’s headquarters.  When he returned to the states, he spent most of his life in Sedalia. He was a proud member of the Teamster’s union and had many tales of his years working at Meadow Gold. He was the owner of Curry Realty, Inc. and past member of the Sedalia Board of Realtors, Sedalia Country Club, Pettis County Historical Society, and Broadway Presbyterian Church.  A founding member of Downtown Sedalia Incorporated, he served on the CBCD board of Sedalia for many years and continued to support the revitalization and renovation of the historic district.

He was a 60 plus member of the Ararat Shrine, where he served as Director of Shrine Clubs for the Western Jurisdiction, Ambassador, president of the Sedalia Shrine Club, and one of the founding members of the Fun Kor. For more than 40 years, Charley was the local chairman of the hospital committee for the Shriner’s Hospital, arranging for children’s transportation and care. Many times he flew with kids to other hospitals around the country to assist them. He followed the progress of these children and fully supported the work of the Shriner’s Hospitals.

He is survived by his wife, Mildred K. Curry, of the home; daughter, Charlotte J. Curry, Sedalia, along with loving brothers-in law, sisters-in law, nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his parents; his brother, Ross Huston Curry; and his sister, Mary Ann Sands.

Private graveside services will be held at a later date at Longwood Cemetery, Longwood, Missouri.

Friends may sign the guest book from 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Thursday and Friday at Heckart Funeral Home.
