Joseph Cure was born on December 10, 1983 in Bloomington, Minnesota, USA, and died on November 8, 2015 in Ennis, Montana, USA.
He was an American ice hockey player and actor, known for Miracle in 2004.
Montana Highway Patrol Jeff Sergeant confirms that 31-year-old Joseph Cure was killed when the vehicle he was driving slid off US 287 about 26 miles south of Ennis Sunday morning. The car left a road described as icy and rolled multiple times.
A female passenger was airlifted to a hospital in Bozeman, where she is being treated for serious head injuries.
Joseph grew up in Bloomington and Let’s Play Hockey magazine reports that he was a member of the 2002 Holy Angel’s State Championship hockey team.
After graduating, Joseph played junior hockey and was just about to begin his career at Gustavus Adophus College when he heard about a movie tryout for experienced hockey players.
Joseph went to an initial cattle call, kept getting called back, and eventually won a part playing Minnesota Native Mike Ramsey in the movie “Miracle,” which chronicled the journey of the Gold Medal-winning U.S. Olympic Hockey Team and their coach, hockey legend Herb Brooks.
Joseph Cure told Let’s Play Hockey that his takeaway experience of being on Miracle isn’t specifically doing the movie itself, but being “a hockey person.”
“A lot of the cool stuff in my life is because of hockey,” he told the magazine.
Joseph Cure coached hockey in both Bloomington and Los Angeles, and represented the Herb Brooks Foundation at special hockey events.
Joseph passed away at age 31 in November 2015.
