Tommy Lewis Curry, Jr

May 15, 1978 ~ June 5, 2021 (age 43)


Mr. Tommy Lewis Curry, Jr. of Laurens,  South Carolina was born May 15, 1978 in Selma, Alabama to Tommy Lewis Curry, Sr. and Sandra Moore (Michael) Anderson.

He attended the public schools of Laurens, South Carolina as well as Philadelphia, New York where he was a 1997 graduate of Indian River High School.  He went on to serve four years in the United States Army.  Tommy was proud of his military service and to be called a Veteran.

At an early age, he attended Macedonia African Methodist Episcopal Church in Cross Anchor, South Carolina where he was a member of the choir and the usher board.

In addition to his stint in the United States Army, "TJ," as he was lovingly called by most, had various employers across the United States including Walmart Supercenter in Laurens, South Carolina and T-Mobile.

TJ had a great "gift of gab" and sense of humor that enabled him anyone in any walk of life.  During his travels throughout the United States and abroad, he has won the hearts of so many who now call him "Brother."  He was a simple guy who cherished the little things in life and had no ill will towards anyone.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandparents  Josephus Moore, Sr.  and Elizabeth Thompson Moore; and his paternal grandparents:  Arthur Curry and Annie Lee Curry.

On Saturday, June 5, 2021, Mr. Tommy Lewis Curry, Jr. departed this life and entered Eternal rest at his home in Laurens, South Carolina at the age of forty three.

TJ loved his family and leaves to cherish his fond memories, in addition to his parents and stepfather, four children:  Latisha Curry, Tishina Curry, Cyanna Curry, and Jace Curry all of Giessan, Germany; three brothers:  Nakia (Chaudel) Moore of Bethlehem, GA, Tilton (Candace) Curry of Winder, GA, and George Bullocks, Jr. of Watertown, NY; five sisters:  Aneadra Anderson of Laurens, SC, Wendy Curry of Dayton, OH, Nicole (Marcus) Bennett of Fort Drum, NY, Tina Curry of Dayton, OH and Priscilla Curry of Wurzburg, Germany; grandmother, Fannie Mae Anderson; a special aunt and uncle who helped raise him:  Reverend Donnie Rice and Joyce Moore Rice; nine nieces:  Deikyn Moore, Ariana Bennett, Anasia Bennett, Breshawna Foggie, Tyra Curry, Tiana Curry, Anika Bullocks, Jamanilese Bullocks, and Vease Bullocks;  fifteen nephews:  Maurice McKnight, Jalen Gambrell, Teague Moore, Peige Moore Kezarious Martin, Kayden Moore, Jeremiah Anderson, Nasir Curry, Darnell Curry, Tyrone Curry, Leo Curry, Antwan Curry, Shaquan Bullocks, George Bullocks III, and Tamaaj Bullocks;  four special cousins who were like sisters:  Roselyn Rice, Tangela (Deon) Byrd, Temple Rice, and Terri (Greg) Anderson; numerous aunts and uncles; and a host of other relatives and special friends.

In addition to God and family, TJ was an avid lover of sports--especially football, more so, Alabama Crimson Tide Football (ROLL TIDE)! His humbleness, his laughter, and his spirit will forever be in the hearts of all those whom he touched.  He will be greatly missed by everyone who knew him.
