Air Force veteran Christopher C. Currie dies at 78
Monday 05 July 2021
Christopher C. Currie, 78, died on Friday, June 18, 2021, of a sudden heart attack at home. He was the son of the late Thomas and Alice (Dickey) Currie of Southport, CT, and later Kennebunkport, ME.
Christopher was the Class President of Roger Ludlow High School, Fairfield, CT in 1961. Christopher graduated from the US Air Force Academy in Colorado in 1965, and later from Georgia Tech, earning an MBA. He served his country as a full-time member of the US Air Force for more than 20 years, retiring as a major. He has received numerous Meritorious Service Medals for distinguished excellence in his field during these years. After his retirement from the Air Force, he worked as a controller for Arkwright Insurance Company. Upon retirement, his primary focus became the World Federalist Movement, where he served for many years as the interim president of the New England chapter. In a self-proclaimed mission to “Save the World,” Chris tirelessly composed hundreds of missives exposing the lies and wrongs of America’s leaders, delivering them to the appropriate leaders he felt could draw attention and take the right steps. “MOVE ON” occupied his attention for his own action, coordinator of RI.
His LOVE for everyone was deep. His life was founded on “LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR AS YOURSELF” because he both lived and proselytized on this principle.
Her longtime love for water sports and Golden Retrievers included her joy in being with family … happily sharing, helping and supporting, wearing many hats! Her 22-year-old cat Reilly has been her inseparable companion over the years, especially during the years of isolation from the COVID 19 pandemic. Unsurprisingly, he followed Chris within two days.
He is survived by his former wife Kanjana (Kay) Currie and their son, Greggory Currie; Greg’s former wife, Aubrey, with their four children: Chessa, Aura, Nova and Jett Currie of Richland, WA; one sister, Linda Currie DeHart and her husband Arthur Stowe of Cambridge, MA; one brother, Scott Currie of Auburn, ME; nephews Davin and Matthew Currie, and a close friend of the Penny Kerns family. He was predeceased by his beloved companion Sandy Orzechowicz.
Chris will be remembered as a generous, fun-loving soul with great integrity in all he has done, enriching the lives of those he touched along the way.
Her funeral arrangements are private at the request of the family.
There will be a celebration of Chris’ life in the fall.
May Love be born in Everyone, so that by dying we become LOVE which never dies.
