Nécrologie de Curtis Lee Golden
Curtis Lee Golden, 70, of Marlborough, NH, passed away at home surrounded by family after a long illness. Curtis was born in Long Island, NY to parents Albert and Pauline (nee Earley) Golden and grew up in Nashua, NH. After graduating from Nashua High School in 1971, Curtis apprenticed with a silversmith, cementing a lifelong love of creative works including jewelry making, photography, watercolor painting, and music. Curt met his wife of over 47 years, Kay (nee Robertson) Golden in Milford, NH in 1974. They were married the next year. The couple then moved to Norfolk, VA followed by Tacoma, WA in 1975 when Curtis joined the Army 9th Infantry Band as a piano player and percussionist. After an honorable discharge in 1978, the couple moved back to NH where Curt earned degrees from Nashua Vocational Technical College and Keene State College. An engineer by trade, Curtis worked for Keene companies Timken and Kingsbury, retiring from National Quality Assurance in Acton, MA as an aerospace auditor in 2019. Curt was a great lover of the outdoors, spending many vacations camping, canoeing, hiking, kayaking, and fishing with friends and family. Though he rarely brought home “suppah”, Curtie was relentless in his pursuit of a dinner-worthy trout. He also took great pride in a seasonal garden which yielded vast quantities of vegetables throughout the years, in part due to his keenly engineered structures and supports. Curt crafted many silver pieces and watercolor paintings as gifts for friends and family. His self-taught watercolors, a particular joy in retirement, often took inspiration from the beautiful seascapes and sunsets in Swans Island, ME where Curt and his family have vacationed for 30 years. Curtis is survived by his wife Kay Golden and daughter Alison Golden - who he was very proud of; his sister Patricia O’Connor and her husband Larry O’Connor of Brighton, MA; niece Kelley Teixeira and her husband David Teixeira of San Leandro, CA; nephews Jeffery and Timothy Golden of Philadelphia, PA - who were regaled with many “moose caller” and auditing tales; and numerous other nieces, nephews, and dear friends. No services will be held. Curt believed that learning was a “luxury and great privilege”.
