Former Governor Dave Freudenthal had this to say upon hearing about the Sunday night  death of Dennis (Denny) Curran.

"Wonderful friend, wonderful news man. Known for his absolute objectivity and dedication to the truth. He wrote with a wit and perception that few people in Wyoming could match and I think he will be greatly missed."

Curran died of a heart attack. He was the Editor Emeritus of the Wyoming Business Report since 1998. He also served as Governor Mike Sullivan's press secretary from 1987-1995.
