In Loving Memory: Leonard LeRoy “Roy” Curry
It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Leonard LeRoy “Roy” Curry, a beloved husband, father, brother, and grandfather. Roy, aged 76, was born on August 1, 1946, in Brooklyn, New York, and peacefully departed this world on May 17, 2023, in Jacksonville, Florida. His loss is mourned by his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched.
Having attended the Navy ET School, Leonard served with distinction in the United States Navy (ET) for three years. Following his military service, he became the proud owner of Roy’s TV Sales & Service, where he shared his expertise and passion for electronics with the community he served.
Beyond his professional pursuits, Roy had a deep love for nature and spending time outdoors. He found solace in gardening, treasured the serenity of hiking, and possessed a remarkable talent for carpentry. These passions brought him joy.
However, Roy's most cherished moments in life were rooted in his relationships. His unwavering faith in Jesus Christ was a source of strength and inspiration, guiding his path and shaping his character. The day he married Linda marked a milestone of love and commitment that brought immeasurable joy to his heart. The birth of his son, Lenny, filled his life with purpose and pride, and the arrival of his beloved grandchildren further enriched his existence.
Roy will be remembered for his kind and gentle nature, his warm smile, and his ability to make everyone feel valued and loved. His generosity knew no bounds, and he was always there to lend a helping hand or offer words of wisdom. Roy's presence will be deeply missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
As we mourn Roy's passing, let us also celebrate his remarkable life. May his memory serve as a reminder of the importance of faith, love, and cherished moments shared with family and friends. Though he is no longer with us, his spirit will forever live on in our hearts.
Roy was preceded in death by his parents, Leonard LeRoy Curry and Catherine Anne Curry.
He is survived by his devoted wife, Linda Curry, their loving son, Leonard “Lenny” Boyd Curry (Molly), and cherished grandchildren, Leonard “Boyd” Curry, II, Brooke Leigh Curry, and Bridget Caroline Curry. He also leaves behind his brother, Patrick Scott Curry, and sisters, Kathy Leahy and Michelle Mcabee.
