LEWISTON — Theodore P. “Ted” Curran, 63, of Sabattus, passed away on Friday, Aug. 14, 2015, surrounded by his family after a short battle with cancer.

He was the husband of Helene T. (Potvin) Curran.

Ted was born April 29, 1952, in Lewiston, a son of the late Leo E. and Francoise (Veilleux) Curran. He met the love of his live, Helene, at St. Dominic High School; they married on Sept. 2, 1972, at St. Louis Church in Auburn.

Ted served in the U.S. Air Force, returned home and graduated from Central Maine Vocational Technical Institute as a machinist. He worked nearly 40 years at Elmet Technologies. Ted was also a member of the Teamsters, a shop steward, and won the world competition in Rome, Italy, on the “Maintenance Attack Team.” He also served the Town of Sabattus as selectman and a member the Recycling Committee.

Ted was a longtime parishioner of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Sabattus. He looked forward to the weekly after-Mass breakfasts with his dear friends, Robert and Claire Gervais. He also enjoyed his lifelong friendship with Daniel Leblanc of Berlin, Mass., and working with Ronald Lessard.

Ted loved a good debate, but more so, his wife of almost 43 years, Helene. His greatest joys were walking at Reid State Park — or anywhere, for that matter — hand in hand with her.

Spending time with his grandkids was an important part of his life, as was proclaiming to dislike everyone — with Ted, you always knew how he felt and he showed with his actions the depth of his love. He was a proud man who lived to be the support and anchor of his family.

Besides his beloved wife, Helene, he is survived by his son, Steven Curran of Lewiston; his daughter, Angela Duncan Ostrander, Ohio; three grandsons and a granddaughter; his sister, Agnes Perkins of Carlisle, Pa.; his brothers, Jean-Paul Curran and Daniel Curran, both of Sabattus, Ronald Curran of Sebago and Michel Curran of Sabattus; and several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by a nephew.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Memorial Mass on Friday, August 21, 2015 at 4 p.m. at Our Lady of the Rosary Church, 131 High Street, Sabattus.
