May 1, 1951June 15, 2020

Timothy Dwight Curl, 69, of Marietta, GA passed away peacefully with his wife and son by his side on Monday, June 15, 2020. Tim was born in Atlanta, GA on May 1, 1951 to Geneva Poling Curl and Dwight Curl. He graduated from Avondale High School in 1969, where he played football, baseball and wrestled. In 1973, he graduated from West Georgia College with a BBA in Marketing and Management, where he met his beloved wife, Julie. He was a member of Lambda Chi Alpha Fraternity.

Tim retired in 2016 after a successful career in commercial construction management and development. In his spare time, he enjoyed spending time with his family and friends, listening to music, dancing, telling jokes, fishing, playing golf, tackling home improvements, maintaining the yard and relaxing on the beach or at his friend’s farm in South Carolina. Tim lived a joyful life made rich by deriving fulfillment and happiness from the simplest of pleasures. His kind, infectious personality and selfless nature always made those around him feel happy, comfortable and accepted. Tim coached little league baseball, was a member of Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church, and served as past President of the Arthur’s Vineyard Community Association.

Tim is preceded in death by his father, Dwight Curl and brother, Mike Curl. He is survived by his loving wife of more than 46 years, Julie Wood Curl, his son Matt, daughter-in-law Brittany and grandson Everett of Brookhaven, GA, his mother Geneva (Tootsie) Curl and sister Gwen Curl Housworth of Braselton, GA, nieces Ashley Curl Johnston, Heather Curl Rutherford, Beth Curl Kline and Melissa Housworth Albert, nephews Michael Denton and Neal Housworth, sisters-in-law Donna Curl Spackman and Lynn Wood Griner, brothers-in-law Lew Griner and Rusty Housworth, and many great-nieces and nephews, cousins and dear friends.

A Funeral Service for family will be held at 11:00 am on Friday, June 19, 2020 in the Chapel at Mt. Bethel United Methodist Church. A Memorial Service will be planned for later in the summer for friends and family.

Mr. Curl would always always meet you during his walks with a smile and some kind words. Mr. Curl always seemed to have a dog cookie in his pocket. My dogs began recognizing him from afar and began knowing he would have a treat for them. You were a very kind soul on earth and we send love, hugs and prayers for your beautiful family. You will be missed. May you rest now beside our king. Amen.

Julie, Tootsie & Gwen: What great memories growing up just three houses away from the Curls. Tim was my best buddy in those long-past 50s, and I will never forget the baseball, football and playing army in those deep woods. Tim and Mike taught me to ride a bicycle & I regret that I could never beat Tim in a foot race. Dwight & Tootsie were always so nice to me, and Gwen was the sweetest of little sisters. God bless you all. Heaven is a better place with Tim and Mike up there.

For many years I had heard about Tim’s dance moves! Finally, at Kyle Meloney’s wedding I had the chance to group dance and shag with him. He lived up to all of the legends! What a fun night we all shared. The Curls, the Neyharts, the Thomas’s and Meloney ‘s all tearing up the dance floor to some great tunes. What a life!

My sincere condolences to Tim's family. He was such a fun person and I enjoyed working with him on many projects at Piedmont. I believe our final big projects in Las Colinas Texas was one of his last before retirement. He was the ultimate "gentleman".

I attended West Georgia for one year in 1971 and got to know you Julie as a Phi Mu. You were the sweetest person to me. You and Tim were the ideal couple...loving ,friendly and kind to me as a young freshman. I will always remember the love you two shared. Y’all were an inspiration then and through the years. Facebook. Allowed me to enjoy pictures and postings of you and Tim and the family to still feel a closeness even though I wasn’t able to see y’all. You two were blessed with such a SPECIAL and beautiful relationship. I am so very sorry for your loss. Please know that I will pray for God to grant you strength and give you comfort. May he bless you and your family. Much love. Sherri Land Sallinger
