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.
