Patriotic Emblem

John Maxwell Curtin, 74, of Easton, MA passed away in the wee hours of Wednesday, August 30, 2017.

Originally from Charlestown, MA, the son of the late John and Alice Curtin and brother of the late Patricia Kensinger and Richard Curtin, he was a dedicated son and brother, devoted and loving husband, wonderful father (and father-in-law), stalwart friend, avid gardener, voracious reader, and master of witty side comments and puns. He attended Charlestown High School, during which time he became a drummer in The Majestic Knights Drum and Bugle Corps, an association he remained passionate about over the years. He served in the United States Air Force in the 60's, after which he met and married the love of his life, Maureen (McDevitt) Curtin.

After the birth of his son, John Joseph Curtin, John coached little league baseball in Easton, and became the ultimate hockey father- driving to practice early in the mornings and serving on the Easton Youth Hockey Board of Directors. A man of faith, he also served the parish of Immaculate Conception in Easton as a lector and CCD educator. After attending Cursillo, he became a heartfelt supporter of My Brother's Keeper and a volunteer for Meals on Wheels, as they allowed him ways to give back to the community.

After graduation from Wentworth Institute of Technology, John went on to work for Spaulding Company and the United States Postal Service. When he wasn't on the Cape with his family, attending the theater in New York with his granddaughter Paige, or watching Bruins and Red Sox games with his son, John was active in several bowling leagues, and, like his father before him, became a proud member of the Old Charlestown School Boy's Association.

A thoughtful and kindhearted man who will be missed by many, John is survived by wife Maureen, son John, daughter-in-law Jessica, granddaughter Paige, sister Evelyn, brothers William, James, and Thomas, sisters-in-law Kathy, Karen, Linda, Sandra, Marjorie, and Rosemary, brother-in-law James, many beloved nieces and nephews who meant the world to him, and friends and neighbors who he thought of as his extended family.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to attend the funeral on Tuesday, Sept. 5 at 9:00 a.m. from Kane Funeral Home & Cremation Services, 605 Washington Street (Rte.138) Easton, followed by a funeral Mass in the Immaculate Conception Church, Easton, at 10:00 a.m. Interment will follow with military honors in the Immaculate Conception Cemetery, Easton. Visiting hours on Monday, Sept. 4 from 4-8 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations in John's memory may be sent to My Brothers Keeper, PO Box 338, Easton, MA. 02356. For directions or condolences visit
