James M. Curran, 59

In addition to the love of his life Stacie, his wife of 21 years, and his amazing children Dylan, Shea, Carly, and Charlie, he is survived by his beloved brothers and sisters, Kathy Hurley and her husband Tom of Boca Raton, FL, Chris Curran and his wife Diane of Shelton, Trish Adams and her husband Bill of Boca Raton, Florida and Michael Curran of Delray Beach, Florida, his loving mother-in-law Rhona Lieberson, and several nieces and nephews, aunts and uncles.

Jimmy was a loving husband and father who was dedicated to the care of his family and was a staple in the community, coaching his kids in Little League and basketball. Jimmy, known by some as Jim, was a die-hard Boston sports fan and enjoyed watching and attending as many Patriots and Red Sox games as possible.

His love of sports came at a young age as he played baseball, basketball, football, softball, golf, and anything in between. As an avid golfer, Jim was a longstanding member of Brownson Country Club, which became home away from home and a staple in his life.

He was known for his upbeat, loving, fun, and hilarious personality and will be missed by all.

Friends are invited to an outdoor Celebration of Life at his home away from home, Brownson Country Club Golf Course, on Monday, Aug. 31 at 1 p.m.

Get Your Paul Newman Vote Poster Here

WestportNow.com Image
Melissa Newman, daughter of Paul Newman, hawks some register to vote posters today to passersby on Main Street. She came across the poster from the 1960s, eliminated a partisan message, and decided to hand them out as part of a get-out-the-vote effort. She seemed to take delight in questioning some younger passersby as to whether they have ever heard of Paul Newman and used the opportunity to explain who he (and her mom, longtime Westporters) were in film history.
