Jim Curcio

Former Como resident Jim Curcio, loving husband to Kathy, passed away from complications associated with Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) on Feb. 26, 2020, in Las Cruces, N.M.

Jim was an easygoing person and a talented woodworker who loved horses and motorcycling and taking the road less traveled. He loved riding his Harley and made the trip to up to Sturgis for many years. He always looked forward to getting into the hot tub after a long day’s ride.

Jim was born in the Chicago area in 1944. Jim and Kathy met as dance partners in Salida before getting married. They enjoyed 20 years in the Como area before retiring to Las Cruces, N.M. in 2017.

Jim is survived by his wife Kathy; son Tony; daughter Julie; sister Joyce; and brother Rick.

Jim would encourage you to do good things and enjoy life.

Condolences may be sent to 3312 Chimney Rock Rd, Las Cruces, NM 88011.

Jim’s family has made private arrangements.
