CURRIE, Jack Edward - In the early hours of Monday morning, November 24, 2003, Jack Currie quietly slipped away from the Trillium Health Centre in Mississauga to play his final round of golf. Jack has left great memories with his wife, Merrilyn and sons, Chris and his wife Kathleen, Jamie and Daniel and his wife Erin. Jack was also the proud Poppa of his grandson, Brett. Jack will be sadly missed by his sister, Helen and her husband George Munro, as well as the families of his nephew, Ron Munro and niece, Barb Cockburn. As well, his loss is felt deeply by the families of his brother-in-law, David Graham and sisters-in-law, Janice Graham-Foscarini and Laurie Graham.Jack's unique sense of humour and unconditional generosity enriched the lives of his family. Jack loved to watch his son, Chris play ball for Cranks in Erindale and for the Panthers in Kitchener. He also loved to coach his sons, Jamie and Daniel on the diamond while they were young and was later proud to see their achievements in cycling and volleyball. His support fuelled his sons' desire for success and he is their greatest role model. Jack was also the best friend, bridge partner and travelling companion to his wife Merril. While his passing is initially causing his family a lot of sadness, they will not miss his unorthodox golf swing or questionable flick serve. To the skipper from his crew: you may not have made it to the start line on time often, but you always finished first in our hearts.Jack has touched many lives volunteering his time as President of Applewood baseball, coaching and umpiring minor league baseball games, driving his sons' friends to school, and doing the creative accounting for the 1st Applewood Cub and Scout troops. Jack's absence will be felt on the badminton courts at the Boulevard Club, the card tables of numerous places of ill repute, the slopes of Mount Sainte Anne, as well as at the helm of the Diana, in his office at Goudey's and in the sand traps of golf courses everywhere. Fish, however, will not miss him as he always missed them. Friends will be received at the family home, 1594 Watersedge Road, Mississauga on Thursday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be on Friday at 10:30 a.m. at St. Christopher's Catholic Church (1171 Clarkson Road) directly followed by a reception at the family home. There will be a private family interment after the reception. Donations to the Diabetes Foundation or Share Life would be appreciated by the family.
