Dr. Robert Irwin Curry
LIMA: Dr. Robert Irwin Curry died Thursday, September 6 in St. Rita's Medical Center, following a brief illness. He no longer is flying with the eagles. Rather, he has left us to soar with the angels. He was born on September 4, 1923 to Dr. Roy Irwin and Martha Merciel Campbell Curry in Cleveland, OH. On December 26, 1954, he married Nancy Lee Dumbauld in Alexandria, OH.
Dr. Curry attended Mansfield Schools, receiving his pre-med education at the College of Wooster and his Doctorate in Medicine from The Ohio State University in 1957. In 1957-58, he served an internship at St. Rita's Hospital. Following his training, he established a Family Practice in Botkins, Ohio and was a member of the staff of Wilson Memorial Hospital. In 1964, he returned to Lima, where he still maintained his office.
He is also survived by a brother, Dr. James (Joyce) Curry of Mansfield, a sister, Jean Comegys of Bradenton, Florida and a brother and sister-in-law, William and Sara Dumbauld of Johnstown; and many nieces and nephews.
Besides his parents, he was preceded in death by his in-laws, Harry and Helen Dumbauld; a son, Paul Andrew Curry; a grandson, Anton William Osterloh; and a brother-in-law, Lonnie Comegys.
