Sincerest condolences to the entire family, I have fond memories of Mr. Currie at CDS. It was a special time in my young career with a great crew leading us at the helm. I distinctively remember Mr.Curries vibrant smile when we’d cross path on the elevator or was reckoned to his office to fix his computer. The tribute video clearly depicts what family meant to him. Sincerest Condolences Vito DiPinto
