CURRAN, Archibald Donald - Peacefully, at the Northridge Long Term Care Centre, Oakville, on Saturday, July 21, 2012, at the age of 91. Loving and dedicated husband for 59 years of the late Madeline (September, 2002). Beloved father of Nicole Formanek (Ed) and Michael Curran (Shirley). Proud grandfather of Jeffrey, Andrea Meyer (Graham), Devon (Pete) and Madelaine and cherished great-grandfather of Julia and John. Dear brother of the late Bill, Jack and Tom and brother-in-law of Norma Curran and Vera Nunn and dance partner of Kay. Serving his country as an RCAF flying officer, Arch\'s character was refined into that of a true officer and a gentleman. He was a world traveler who lived life to the fullest. Arch loved golfing, curling, playing bridge and ballroom dancing, but his true love was for his family who always came first.
Thank you to all the staff from Northridge Long Term Care Centre, for all of their excellent care and compassion provided to our father. Special thanks to Heritage Place in Burlington who also went above and beyond. Friends may call at the Turner & Porter "Peel" Chapel, 2180 Hurontario St., Mississauga (Hwy. 10, N. of QEW) from 2-5 p.m. on Sunday. A memorial service will be held in the Chapel on Monday, July 30, 2012, at 11 o\'clock.
