SSUSA Player Hannington/ Bay State Bombers 55 Bill Curry Dies in Ireland
Bill Curry was my best friend in the world. He was over in Ireland with SSUSA these past two weeks doing something he absolutely loved to do "Play Softball". He traveled over there with his girlfriend Jen to get away and have some fun. I just heard this morning that he died of what they believe was a heart attack after dinner 6/25/13. I am so sorry Jen you being there alone without the BIG GUY. I am so saddened by the news I felt compelled to post this here. Bill was my best friend in softball and like my brother and he will be sorely missed. He played for the Hannington/Bay State Bombers 55 from MA. He was actually the CO-MVP in 2011 when the Bombers won the Triple Grand Slam in Phoenix when he hit a modest .912 for the tourney. I guess that would have been the highlight of his Senior Softball career at 57. He was loved by all his teammates and family and I just wanted to give a shout out to him on this board because he deserves the best from the game he loved to play. We miss you already Bill, just remember keep your head on the ball when you try to jack. Love you buddy!!!

We cannot say enough about the character and spirit Billy displayed. A great teammate,friend,and person. We never did get to race- but that was the point. Hope you get on a good team @ Pearly Gates Field.

The Eastern Mass Softball community is saddened by the sudden death of Billy Curry. Cetainly one of the nicest gentlemen and toughest competitors in Senior Softball. My deepest condolences to his children and family,which includes his friend and Manager "Case", his senior softball family, the Baystate Bombers, and to all his softball colleagues. Billy will be missed but not forgotten.

Paul,

I don't know if any of the guys from Team 1 Sports has played against or knows Bill but he certainly sounds like an excellent ambassador for Senior Softball.

Please pass along our prayers and condolences from all the member of Team 1 Sports.

Webbie, thanks so much for the kind words. He was the big leftie like yourself and he was a great competitor and my best friend. He will be sorely missed every time we go to a tournament from now on. He will never be forgotten, though. He was such a great guy you would have loved to get to know him plus a great teammate. God bless you and Patti!

John, thanks to you for the kind words also. He was the ultimate teammate and friend. He would give the shirt off his back and sometimes did. He loved to play softball and just hanging with the guys. Thank you!

I got to meet Bill when the Hannington's boys came down to Wilkes-Barre a year ago this past weekend. I got the chance to meet him and all the guys there from my home state (Watertown)there and have to say they were one of the nicest group of players we had the chance to compete against. I do wish to pass along condolences from not only me but all the guys from our Roadhouse Blues 55 team. I know there will be a big hole in the hearts of all his teammates. He will be sorely missed.

Thank you Bernie, Bill had a great time in PA and was looking to go back again. He talked about how much fun he had and what a great tournament to play in for us. He was a great person and an even better player and teammate. He WILL be sorely missed but definitely not forgotten. Thanks again Bernie well appreciated....
