Edward (Ted) Curlette was born in Calgary, Alberta on May 17th, 1964 and left this world peacefully on September 4th, 2012.
Ted lived in Calgary throughout his childhood and graduated from Bishop Carroll high school in 1982. After that he went on to study economics at Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff, Arizona. Upon graduation Ted returned to Calgary to ply his trade in the family business. Ted realized the growing economic potential of Southeast Asia in the early 90’s and decided to pursue his M.B.A. in Jakarta, Indonesia. Upon graduation Ted was offered a position at Praxair, Indonesia by the man who would become his mentor, the late Pak Pugianto. Ted lived in Indonesia for 11 years. He then continued his economic career in Canada. Ted also had a great passion for sports. He enjoyed watching and playing all sports throughout his life. It was often said of him that if the ball weren’t already invented, Ted would have invented it!
Although he loved sports and economics, Ted’s greatest passion in life was raising his three daughters. Ted was dearly loved and will be greatly missed by Cathy, (nineteen), and the twins Beverly and Jessica, (fifteen). Ted is survived and remembered by his daughters, his father Edward, mother Catherine, sister Veronica and brother Michael, as well as his extended family of relatives including the MacDougall, Hodgson, Scott, Prieur and McDougall families.
Take peace and comfort on your journey
