Dr. Bryan P. Curry

January 1, 1975 –
 January 1, 1975


Dr. Bryan Porter Curry, beloved husband, father, son and brother passed away June 18, 2022 surrounded by his wife Kathy and family.

Born January 1, 1975 to Richard and Linda Curry in Dallas, Bryan was a graduate of RL Turner High School, Texas A&M University, UT Houston Medical School and UT Southwestern Medical School with a specialty in Pediatric Anesthesiology.  He practiced at UT Southwestern and later as a contract physician until diagnosed with Parkinson’s in 2017.  He loved children and whenever possible carried them into the OR.  He was admired by coworkers and patients alike.

Bryan had a happy childhood and was a wonderful student and athlete.  As a teenager he played club soccer for the Comets 75, winning 4 State and 3 United States Regional Championships and finishing Silver Medalists at Nationals.  He was famous for taking penalty kicks and shootouts, never missing a goal.  He was also legendary for his video game prowess including winning a National Championship.

Bryan cherished life, putting his family and friends above all else.  He had a kind heart and a wonderful sense of humor.  He could always make you laugh.  Bryan had diverse interests.  He enjoyed poker and was frequently given complimentary rooms at the WinStar Casino where he and Kathy shared getaway weekends.  He loved comedy, often going to Comedy Clubs and even performing himself (parents not allowed).  Bryan was in the process of writing a children’s book.

Bryan has two children, Micah Porter and Madison Grace from his marriage with Theresa Garcia.  He loved them deeply and was proud of their many accomplishments.  He lived to see them grow to beautiful, intelligent, responsible young adults with bright futures.  No parent could ask for more.

Bryan met the love of his life, Kathy Shehan, in 2015 and married her in 2020.  He found true happiness and enjoyed each day to the fullest.  He was a devoted husband and tried each day to make her feel loved.  He enjoyed traveling and they took many wonderful trips together.  Bryan was a proud grandfather to Kathy’s granddaughter Layla Petty.  He loved their miniature Yorkshire Terrier.  Vader provided companionship the past two years and was the feature character in his children’s book.

Bryan leaves behind his wife Kathy, children Micah and Madison, parents Richard and Linda, sister Cassie and her family Greg, Claire and Rowan and Aunts Judy, Tessie and Betty and a shared granddaughter Layla Petty.

A Visitation for Family and Friends will be held Thursday, June 30,2022  from 3:00-5:00 PM at North Dallas Funeral Home 2710 Valley View Ln Farmers Branch, TX 75234.  A family graveside service is pending.

"I highly recommend this funeral home and crematorium; when I had to make and pay for my brother’s arrangements across state lines, Evelyn Montonya, in particular, demonstrated both compassion and professionalism and made a very sad and difficult situation much easier. Many thanks."

"The unexpected passing of my husband was a very difficult and trying time for my boys and I. I had the good fortune of having Abel walk us thru this process. Working with him was such a weight off my shoulders. He was professional, so polite and helpful. The service was beautiful – never did I feel rushed or like just another customer. They gave me the time I needed and I appreciate that so much! Also Mr. Brooks took special care of my husband as he is a fellow mason. I would highly recommend working with Abel and North Dallas Funeral Home."

"Everyone at North Dallas Funeral Home was very professional, kind, and caring, in all steps of the process from the first phone call to the service held at their location. They help to make the process as easy and comforting in my opinion as to be expected, I would recommend their service to anyone. Thank You to everyone who helped me and my family. Sincerely,"

"As soon as the call was made to Mr. Wayne Baxter all of my brothers final needs were taken care of. They walked me through what to expect the timeline and even dealt with the cemetery and the grave diggers. I was a hot mess due to my brothers sudden and unexpected passing. The experience was seamless and made it easy for my brother’s friends and family to say their last goodbyes. They even had the size to accommodate such a large group that showed up . The package deals that they offered were cost-effective and didn’t break my bank account. They included extras and accommodations that other funeral homes charged extra for. All the staff was amazing including Mr. Don Dodd . I can not thank them enough for all their help."

Dear John,

It was such a nice pleasure to meet you, and what you had planned for my father just took my breath away. It was so special to hear you tell us how he would just come over to talk with you. I think it brought him much comfort. Tha you for putting that Air Force article of him on your website. I am going to have a replica made of the painting of his plane to give you.

Thank you again for all you have done to honor our dad.

Love, The Gillilands
