HUDSON — The office of Warmer Fuel Oil Co., a small building that owner Gerry Curley called his “Monopoly House,” disappeared from 240 Washington St. earlier this month with the razing of the adjacent Tuck’s gas station. He was at least 90 years old.
In 1939, Warmer Fuel Oil Co. founder, the late Francis “Sid” Walsh, moved the small building across from the conjunction of Broad and Washington streets, Curley said.
His father, the late Gerry Curley, Walsh’s partner, bought the business in the 1960s.
The eldest Curley, a World War II army veteran, partnered with his son in the mid-1970s until his retirement in 1988.
Sole proprietor since 1988, Gerry Curley recalls working at the adjacent Tuck’s gas station as a high school student in the 1970s.
He said storage tanks at the back of the store, permitted since 1939, were also recently removed. Global Petroleum, the new owners of the property, plan to install a new gas station and convenience store.
Warmer Fuel Oil Co. continues to provide fuel oil and propane gas delivery services. It also ensures the installation and complete maintenance of the heating system. Curley said he was still in business “for the foreseeable future”.
A native of Hudson, Curley and his wife, Meg, reside in Marlborough.
