Jeffrey Bernard Curry, Sr., was born in November 16, 1966 in Camden, Arkansas to the union of William H. Curry and Elsie R. Morgan Curry.
He attended Fairview High School and graduated in 1985. He married Tonya Dunn and to this union a son and daughter were born. Jeff learned some things the hard way and he used those lessons to advise, encourage and give hope to others. He always had a passion for “big trucks”. Jeff worked as a truck driver for Premier Concrete in Camden. Motivated to be an independent driver, he purchased his own 18-wheeler and had plans to build a successful trucking business.
Jeff was a member of Rhema Life Church. He enjoyed sports, and gatherings with his family and friends. He was a simple man, who lived with purpose. To be in Jeff’s presence was to know that you were guaranteed to laugh, have fun, smile, learn something you never knew, and most of all you would feel safe and loved.
