Steven Curl Obituary

Steven Paul Curl, 80, passed away on September 24, 2023, at his home in Troy, MT.  He had kidney failure and was on dialysis for the past 5 years.  He was born on February 4, 1943, in Mitchell, South Dakota, to Frank & Louise (Jennings) Curl.  During the course of Steve’s life, he graduated high school, worked as a construction concrete finisher, was a part of the Saddle Club, Pinochle Card Club, was with the Libby Dam as a foreman, and he married Peggy Ann Satterlee on February 10, 1962, in Pipestone, Minnesota.  

Steve Curl was a loving husband, father, and grandfather.  He was known and loved by the Libby and Troy Montana communities. He loved horses, fishing, hunting, and had a gift for finding veins of water (dousing) for many, in the Troy and Libby area. Steve never met a stranger, never forgot a face, or a concrete job that he did. He knew and loved the Lord.
