William H. (Bill) Curran passed away on June 16 at the age of 76. Curran served as chief financial officer of Marian University from 2001 to 2009, during the university’s time of deepest financial trouble.

In a message to the Marian University community, President Elsener expressed sadness for the loss of a dear friend and gratitude for Curran’s time serving the university, saying “I can’t imagine how we would have made it through that most challenging time without Bill’s keen financial and managing talents. Beyond his investment skill and knowledge, Bill was a person of integrity. Simply stated, our might and major financial renewal would not have been possible without him—Bill will forever be a Marian Knight!”

Curran worked for and retired from Ice Miller, but came out of retirement to help guide Marian University as it revamped its finance and business operations. Curran was recognized as one of the non-profit CFOs of the year by Indianapolis Business Journal in 2008.

“I will be forever grateful for Bill’s generous and expert service,” said Marian University president Daniel J. Elsener.

Family and friends celebrated Curran’s life at St. Luke Catholic Church on Friday, June 19.
