Tyler Curley, 29, of Groton, formerly of Harvard, passed away suddenly on Aug. 22, 2020, just two weeks shy of his 30th birthday, due to injuries sustained in a utility task vehicle accident.
Tyler was born in Concord on Sept. 10, 1990, the son of Kerry and Gayle (Cramb) Curley. He was raised and educated in Harvard and moved to Groton in 2007. During his childhood Tyler loved to spend summer vacations at Wells Beach, Maine, with his family. He was an excellent athlete in his younger years, excelling at swimming, soccer, football, and basketball.
Tyler was also a jack of all trades. There wasn’t much he couldn’t do, and he was always willing to help anyone in need. He loved his job and all his co-workers, whom he thought of as his second family. He was employed as the head foreman at the shop and was in charge of over 50 trucks and pieces of machinery at Commonwealth Construction and Utilities, where his efforts and abilities were an invaluable asset.
Tyler enjoyed riding his UTV with friends and loved being outside and exploring nature. He had a strong love for music, anything with lights, and spending time with his fiancée at their lake house in New Hampshire. Tyler will always be remembered for his kind heart and his ability to make anyone laugh. He was a friend to all and will be missed beyond measure.
In addition to his mother and father, Tyler is survived by his sister Kendra Curley of Groton, his fiancée Kelley Pruyne and her family of Woburn, their beloved dog Diesel, and many beloved aunts, uncles, friends, and coworkers.
Family and friends gathered to honor and remember Tyler Saturday, Aug. 29, at the Badger Funeral Home in Groton. His funeral service was private, for family only.
