Bernard Bagley Curran, 76, of Dickson City, died Wednesday evening April 26, 2017 at the Hospice of the Sacred Heart Inpatient Unit, Dunmore.  He is survived by his wife of 55 years the former Jonelle Dunleavy.

 

Born in Scranton, he was the son of the late Edwin and Mary Bagley Curran and he was raised by his aunt and adoptive mother the late Jane C. Bagley.  He was a devout Catholic and parishioner of the Parish Community of the Cathedral of St. Peter, Scranton where he served as an usher.  He was a graduate of Throop High School and later worked in retail sales at the Scranton Dry Goods and most recently he owned and operated Bernie’s Flags for 35 years on Main St. in Dickson City.

He attended 6:30 a.m. mass at the Cathedral for over 30 years, and became very fond of the early morning attendees.  Bernie’s fondest memories circled around his “breakfast gang”. He was a religious walker who never passed a neighbor or a stranger without a greeting that could lead into a conversation.  He always carried a bag of biscuits to give to any dog he met along the way.

Surviving is a daughter, Jackie LaCoe and husband, Christopher, Hershey; grandchildren, Collin, Ryan and Kate LaCoe.
