Tim Curry (1939 – April 24, 2009) was a Texas lawyer and the Tarrant County District Attorney from 1972 until his death.

Curry was selected to run for District Attorney of Tarrant County after the original choice for nominee backed out just before the 1972 election. Curry was 33 years old when he was first elected.[1] Curry was first elected as a Democrat but switched to the Republican Party in 1990, along with other Tarrant County elected officials who followed a change in the political leanings there. Curry died on April 24, 2009, at the age of seventy of complications of brain and stomach cancer.[2]

The Tarrant County justice center was renamed to Tim Curry Criminal Justice Center shortly after his death.[3]
