IPAC Saddened to Hear of the Passing of Terry Curry


The Indiana Prosecuting Attorneys Council, along with all prosecutors across the state, mourn the loss of former Marion County Prosecutor Terry Curry.

From the moment he took office in 2011, Terry was a great partner for IPAC. During his tenure he served on IPAC’s board of directors and assisted with legislative efforts. After stepping down in 2019 to focus on his health, Terry continued to give his time to IPAC, joining the Legislative Committee and providing his valuable insight.

“It was my privilege to know Terry Curry. Terry epitomized the meaning of integrity, humility and class,” IPAC Executive Director Chris Naylor said. “He leaves behind a legacy of excellence in prosecution and public service and a legacy of love to those who were blessed to have known him.”

As the head of Indiana’s largest prosecutor office, Terry was a natural leader and mentor, not just for his own office but for prosecutors across the state.

“Terry was the kind of boss that everyone loved working for,” said IPAC Assistant Executive Director Courtney Curtis, who worked with Terry at Marion County. “He led his deputy prosecutors with humility and treated each and every victim that came in our office with compassion and respect. He had the unique ability to make a huge office feel small and personal.”

During IPAC’s 2019 Winter Conference, Terry received the Powell Feller Award, the highest award given out by Indiana prosecutors, for all he had accomplished during his tenure.

IPAC extends sincere condolences to Terry’s family, friends and colleagues during this difficult time.
