Adam S. Curcuru

September 04, 1974 - October 11, 2018

Adam S. Curcuru Gloucester, MA - Adam S. Curcuru, 44, of Gloucester, died unexpectedly at his home on October 11. He was born on September 4, 1974. He attended Gloucester Public Schools and graduated from Gloucester High School in 1993. He served in the U.S. Marine Corps reserves for six years and was based in Chicopee, Mass.
Adam was ambitious at an early age, starting a paper route at age 10, then working as a bagger at Cape Ann Market where he dreamed of owning his own store. He worked at Christine's Variety for three years before purchasing it in 2004. He enjoyed socializing with, joking around with, and giving advice to all his customers. He often let children come behind the register and ring up their purchases. It is obvious through the many displays of love and mourning throughout the city, that Adam is already missed terribly.
Adam previously worked at Varian as a Mechanical Electrical Assembler for eight years and in September 2018 he received an HVAC/R certificate from the Peterson School in Woburn.
Adam was a proud father to his beautiful five-year-old daughter, and he enjoyed teaching her about the world and making her laugh. Adam made a connection with everyone he met. He had a great sense of humor and was quick-witted. Adam enjoyed spirituality, exploring the psychic world, and working out at the MAC. He took guitar lessons for 10 years and had a passion for home improvement.
Adam is survived by his daughter Maya and her mother Salina Curcuru; his father Anthony Curcuru and his wife Jean Curcuru; his mother Jessica Wunschel and her husband William Wunschel of Seabrook, N.H.; his brother Anthony Curcuru and his girlfriend Michelle Del Greco of Revere, Mass.; two step-brothers, William Wunschel Jr. and Gregory Moses Jr.; and step-sister Stephanie Blanchard and her husband Joseph Blanchard of Paxton, Mass.; three nieces, Ashley Curcuru, Savanna Moses, and Adelina Blanchard; and four nephews, Anthony Curcuru, Tariq Moses, Nicholas Curcuru, and Jack Blanchard; his 14-year old Cocker Spaniel Mac; many cousins, aunts and uncles.
