Louis Charles Curran

Louis went to meet is Lord at Sunset on January 21, 2022.

He was born on February 26, 1941, to Pauline and Charles Curran of Pittsburg, Kansas.

He lived his first 14 years around there hunting, fishing and trapping. When he was 15 his parents moved to Pueblo, Colo. where he went to school at Central High School. It was while he was riding the school bus that he met Rosann. He and Rosann were highschool sweethearts and were married 60 plus years.

They had four children: Edwin (Tomella) Curran, Bernadette Pluskett, Matthew (Rane) Curran and Jeanette Curran. He had 6 grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. He loved them all very much and was very proud of each and everyone. He was preceded in death by his sister, Kathleen and grandson, Nevada. He has two sisters that survive him, Paula Giordano and Roberta Poole.

Louis started working when he was 11 and had many different jobs. He worked at cleaning chicken coops, butchering chickens and later on when he finished school, he worked as a meatcutter for various stores. He later worked at Valco Cement Plant as a truck driver and then the job he loved the most —–being a master baiter at Angler’s Choice Fish and Bait which he and Rosann owned. He loved working with his daughters, grandson and granddaughter. When he retired, he and Rosann did some traveling, including the Rockies training camps, many trips to Branson, and many fishing trips. However, his favorite place traveled was Ireland.

Although he loved traveling, fishing and the Rockies, his favorite thing was hunting. He was an excellent hunter and never came home empty handed. He hunted until the mountains got longer and steeper, then he became a fun gambler.

He died a very peaceful and loving death surrounded by those he loved most. He will be greatly missed and forever loved.

  1. Roseann So sorry about your husband. Sorry this is so late, but just found out. Prayers for you and your family. Lorie Mena South Mesa

  2. Great Service Rosanne. It was like being there. The girl has a great voice and presence when she sang those great songs! Love you, Mannon,Sandy,Tobi (and Patric…who is there with Louie) Likehart.

  3. CandleImageI have many memories of Louis. Our families camped together in the mountains of Westcliff. Louis and Rosann and me and my husband Ray would meet in Cheyenne for a couple of days. Louis was a hard worker and loved his family. Now he is free of pain, having a good time with Jesus; seeing those who met him as he entered Heaven; and seeing the wonders of Heaven. He is in a much better place than her. Enjoy eternity in the presence of God Almighty and Jesus Christ our Redeemer and Savior.

  4. Roseann so sorry for your loss. I think of Lou often. We deer hunted 50 years ago together. Those memories will last forever.

  5. Hi Rosanne and family. I made a gallant effort, but it is taking too long to get Sandy ready and out of the house in her wheelcair…I will have to watch online…hope Gerry Montgomery has his picture of you and Louie in the frame up front. Love, Mannon and Sandy.

  6. CandleImageRosann, Bruce and I were reminiscing about Louie. Bruce always remembers when Louie took him to the Andreatta’s and what a great time they had. His sense of humor was so crazy. He always made me laugh! Louie will be greatly missed.
    Hugs to you Rosann.

    Love,
    Nancy Artus {Nardin}

  7. As a nurse who got to spend those final weeks with his family what a blessing it was to see that smile, he always had a witty comeback to my conversations. He was a man of grace and love. Lou and his family are blessed for sure as he left them all with messages of love, grace and pride of all his family and for those around him. I was blessed by his faith and the radiating love around him. 🕊💞

  9. CandleImageLouis,
    May your light shine bright in heaven,
    May it light the path that will bring us to you,
    Our memories of you are set in stone,
    You will walk beside us always, we will never be alone.

    Hard times will come and we will cry,
    In our hearts we know this is not good-bye.
    Good times, laughter, and tears,
    Dreams of hitting it big, becoming millionaires.

    I cherished your final days,
    Even though it set my soul ablaze.
    Your home is quiet, and still,
    Your presence is there, I fill the chill.

    Don’t forget your promise you made to me,
    Tell him to wait I will see him guaranteed.
    Alas, this poem is my farewell to thee,
    I will miss your laughter, intelligence and your grit,
    Most of all I will miss your wit.

    Forty three years ago I walked into this family and I was so Blessed to have so many special memories of my father-in-law. I loved to watch him laugh and get excited when he hit a slot machine big. I never knew anyone so lucky on slot machines. He would be down to nothing, and put his last hundred in, and hit 95% of the time. Ed and I were fortunate to travel with his folks to gamble, lots and lots of memories for sure . I enjoyed our talks when he would call me, but most of all I enjoyed all the crap he gave me. I loved this man. This is not good-bye, for I know I will see him again.

    • The poem was wonderful. I know he treasured the memories with you too and I ask God to tell him and Nevada, and grandpa I love them every night.
      Love you

  10. Thank you Roberta. My memories are rich and full….I will try to attend his homegoing service if possible. I have to get my wife Sandy to her oncologist, Dr. Pacheco, the same day. She has cancer and we cannot miss this appointment. Love you and all the Curran family.

  11. CandleImageLouis and I are great friends. When we both lived on Cherry Lane we were like Fonsie and Richie…He was Fonsie of course and I was Richie, He taught me to smoke, starting with cigars, then un-filtered Lucky Strikes never forgetting to use Sin-Sin breath fresheners before going home from Blue Ribbon Lake just west of Pueblo. He also taught me to hunt, trap and tan the hides of any animals we caught there. Whenever we went quail hunting (with 22 caliber rifles) we would first scare them up…and RUN like mad in the dirrection they flew so when they landed we were very close to them…and waited till they walked across the path…always shooting DOWNWARD, never in the air. Boy, those were the days. What a special guy he is. I will always cherish the memories of my friend “Louie”. My wife Sandy and I pray God will surround you Rosann and all the family with His Love and Perfect Peace.

    • Mannon,
      I appreciate you sharing some of your memories of my brother. Sounds like fun times! I especially like the comparison of you two to Fonzie and Ritchie!

      Roberta

      • Mannon,
        I remember all those good times too. You two were really the Fonze and Ritchie. We had many fun, memorable times.
        I will be praying for Sandie. Tell her to call me sometimes.

  12. Louis was a kind and gentle soul. My sincere condolences and many prayers to my life long friend Roberta and the Curran family. May he rest in peace.

  13. i am so sorry for your loss. I knew Louis from taking care of his mom. and the fish angler. I also know his sister Paula. May he RIP. I know he will be missed by all who knew him, May God Bless his Family in their time of nee d . Sue Grisham Turner

  14. Lou was always a hardworker at Safeway. When I’d go to the house with my sister, Marion he’d always be teasing his sisters. Lou had a great laugh!

  15. Louis and I were good friends during our time together at Keating. We went separate ways after that but I remember him fondly as a good friend and funny guy. I always felt like if I was in trouble, he would be there for me.

  16. Louie, remembering you as always having a smile and a true friend over the years. Your personality was great, we spent a lot of time laughing about our past as teenagers..

  17. I am saddened by this news! I pray that all the wonderful memories of good times give you comfort and peace. Prayers for all!
