Hal Wayne (H.W.) Curry was born in the outskirts of Lubbock on January 16, 1940, to Hal Ruben and Geraldine Bailey Curry. 
The family later welcomed baby sister, Charlotte Curry, in 1945.
Hal attended Ropesville High School, where he was involved in FFA and played center for the Ropesville Eagles football team, playing alongside star quarterback and future brother-in-law, Troy Witherspoon. 
He graduated from Ropesville in 1958, and would go on to marry his high school sweetheart, Connie Witherspoon, that next year on August 1.
Hal and Connie welcomed their son, David, in 1960, and would later welcome a baby girl, Rebecca, in 1962.
Hal was no stranger to work, coming from generations of cotton farmers in the Lubbock and Waco areas.
He spent his days after school farming with his father, as he had done all his life.  
Hal was very proud to be a cotton farmer and bought land in Hockley County soon after high school, going straight in to doing what he loved. 
In 2004, Hal decided that after 50 plus years of farming, it was time to retire and focus on his second favorite things: traveling with his wife and being a Pop.
Survivors include his wife, Connie Curry; son, David (June) Curry; daughter, Rebecca (Stuart (deceased)) Sawyer; five grandchildren: Hannah Foster, Hollye (Caleb) Doyle, Kimberly (Andrew) Cowan, Amanda Curry and Marshall (Emily) Curry; and seven great-grandchildren: Alayna Gutierrez, Kashtyn Hickey, Alyssia Doyle, Whitten Doyle, Emreigh Doyle, Abel Cowan and Alice Curry.
He was preceded in death by his father, Hal Ruben ‘H.R.’ Curry; mother, Geraldine Curry; sister, Charlotte Curry; and his favorite dog, ‘Gadget.”
