WINDHAM - Steven Grant Curry, 61, of Windham passed away on Oct. 9, 2018 in Portland.

Though small in stature, Steven Grant Curry was larger than life. Thirty-five years ago, seeking independent living, without his mother's knowledge, Steven filled out an application on his own for the chance to move into a new home. It was then that Steven joined the GMS family. Over the years, Steven lived in several GMS group homes, spreading his love and compassion to those fortunate enough to know him, whether they be family, friends, staff, roommates, or visitors. In Steven's home, everyone was welcomed.

Steven's family roots and many fond memories of childhood were in Cape Elizabeth. If you were from Cape Elizabeth, knew someone from Cape or had any ties with his family then you were an immediate friend. At any opportunity, Steven would pull out the family albums and regale the listener with stories of home. Through this rite of passage, you became his friend for life. Steven treasured his friends and would often bring them home with him when he went to visit his sister, Ann.

Steven was passionate about making connections in his life. As a matter of fact, Steven taught himself American Sign Language so he could communicate with his roommate. Through the years he taught many staff how to communicate using ASL. Steven lived a full life with meaning and purpose. He worked, attended day program, spent time with family and friends, participated in summer and winter Special Olympics, enjoyed camping, fishing, zoos, aquariums, watching television, Face Timing people, and parties of all kinds (especially his birthday).

Steven Curry will be missed by many, but the memories will endure forever.

Steven leaves behind brother, David Curry and his wife, Debbie; brother, Robert Curry and his wife, Jayne; sister, Ann and her husband, Mike Kerouac; nephew, Dan Curry; nephew, Chris Kerouac and his wife, Kara.

He also leaves behind his dearest friends and adopted family, Mallyss and Jason Day.
