Gathering of Family and Friends - Reception Area
Obituary of Robert Laurence McCurdy
Good times and good food is how family and friends will remember Robert Laurence McCurdy, affectionately known as Gutsy. Rob peacefully passed on November 7, 2023, at the Saint John Regional Hospital.
Born on September 13, 1950, in Blacks Harbour, NB to the late Kenneth McCurdy and Barbara (Stewart) McCurdy. Rob survived by his adored wife Beth who he let win at tennis. Rob also survived by his two daughters Danielle Henry (Justin) of Sussex and Angela McCurdy (Marc Giroux) of Saint John, brothers; David McCurdy (Gale) of Summerville, Kenneth McCurdy (Kim) of Grand Bay-Westfield, James McCurdy of Public Landing, grandson Matthew Henry, and extended family. Rob was predeceased by his parents, his brother Daniel McCurdy, and infant granddaughter Iris Henry.
Rob was a passionate Civil Engineer for many years, an avid pie baker, and a music enthusiast. A competitive athlete in hockey, baseball, soccer, and skiing for pleasure. Rob had a zest for life, spoke eloquently, and had a kind heart. Always thinking of his family and enjoying their company by participating in the shenanigans and making his lethal margaritas better known as “Roberitas”. Each parting never a goodbye, rather “to be continued”.
