Hudson – James Michael Curley, dearly beloved son, husband, father, brother, uncle, and friend to all, died unexpectedly Wednesday, Nov. 28, 2012 at the age of 54.
He is survived by his wife, Margaret Nicholas Curley, the love of his life; his daughter, Rachael Curley; and two stepsons, Joshua and Dylan Edwards. His parents, Raymond and Gloria Curley, along with his four brothers, Gerry Curley, Gene Curley, Ray Curley, and Thomas Curley will cherish his memory forever. Jim was preceded in death by his sister, Kathleen Curley, who died in 2000.
Jim graduated from Hudson High in 1976. While at Hudson High, he was a talented athlete playing on both the varsity Hockey and Tennis teams.
He was gifted with the extraordinary ability to always see the best in others. He was a jack of all trades and happiest when working hard for others. He will always be remembered for his kind heart, gracious spirit, contagious laugh, and killer potato soup.
Jim was a devoted father and cherished the years he spent with Rachael watching her grow into the amazing girl she is today.
It would be Jimmy's request that, in lieu of flowers, a donation be made to a college trust fund set up for Rachael at Avidia Bank. Please send checks to Avidia Bank, 42 Main St., Hudson, MA 01749.
