Carlton Bernard Curry was born Jan. 21, 1962 to John and Curtis D. Curry in Shreveport. Carlton completed his earthly journey on the morning of Nov. 3, 2015.
He was reared in Minden and attended Minden High School and graduated with the Class of 1980. After his high school graduation he briefly attended Southern University in Baton Rouge.
With the blessing of being reared in a Christian home, Carlton accepted Christ as his personal Lord and Savior at an early age and was baptized. He had a great love for people and would help anyone in need. He was a great father and took very good care of his three sons.
He was a career truck driver for over 23 years, traveling from coast to coast. During his tenure as a driver, he was featured in Forbes Magazine as “Truck Driver of the Year”.
He loved to cook, collect classic cars and his favorite pastime was watching the New Orleans Saints, so when the “Saints Go Marching In” he will be in the number.
