      CURD, Thomas Henry Shelton Jr., of Roanoke, died Sunday, July 18, 1993, at his home, following an extended illness.

      He was born February 6, 1926, in Welch, W.Va., to the late Judge Thomas H. S. Curd and Grace Harman Curd.

      During World War II, in 1944-46, he served in the Phillipines with the U.S. Navy.

      After the war, he returned home to complete his education. Mr. Curd spent the first ten years of his professional career with the Trust Division, First National Exchange Bank of Roanoke, now First Union National Bank. He resigned in December 1961, to form Valley Marine Center, where he remained as president until he sold his interests some twenty years later.

      In the latter part of that period, he also became professionally active in investment real estate. He obtained his Real Estate Broker's license in 1972, and in 1976, received his CCIM designation (Certified Commercial Investment Member of NIREB), an arm of the National Association of Realtors. Mr. Curd taught several classes in real estate investment at Virginia Western Community College.

      He was co-founder and vice president of the Virginia Real Estate Exchangers, Richmond, and president of Investment Exchange Associates, Inc., a Roanoke commercial-investment real estate firm, from which he conducted his brokerage business. In 1978, he also founded and was president of ERA Alpha Omega Real Estate Services, a residential firm which he guided for eight years, until selling his interests. In 1980, Mr. Curd founded and subsequently served for five years as president and secretary of the Roanoke Commercial Multiple Listing Service, an affiliate of what was then the Roanoke Valley Board of Realtors.

      He is survived by his wife, Grace Woodson Curd; one brother, Dr. Howard Harman Curd and his wife, Nell Mantz Curd of St. Petersburg, Fla.; two sons, Thomas H. S. Curd III, Richmond and Walter H. W. Curd, Sunnyvale, Calif.; one daughter, Grace Chandler Curd, Roanoke; two grandsons, Christopher H. Curd, and Stephen H. Curd, both of Sunnyvale, Calif.

      Funeral services will be conducted Tuesday at 10:30 a.m. at Oakey's Roanoke Chapel by the Rev. Thomas P. O'Dell. Interment will be 2 p.m. Tuesday at Maplewood Cemetery, Tazewell, Va.

      In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that memorial contributions be made to Good Samaritan Hospice. The family will receive friends Monday, at the home, from 5 to 9 p.m.
