CURRIE; Donald Allan; Passed away peacefully at home on March 26, 2018. Beloved husband of, and best friend for 65 years to, Marion. Proud father of Mary Beth (Jeff Rintoul), Susan (Charlie Hitchon) and Bill (Teri). Grandfather of Andrea Hitchon (George Montgomery) and Greg Hitchon (Sarah Amatruda) and Matt Currie (Lena) and Shannon Currie (Michael Kilgour). Don started his career in Hamilton at Westinghouse, moved to Galt Metal in Cambridge and ended his career teaching Labour Relations at Niagara College in Welland. He was involved in his community – including as president of the provincial Personnel Association of Ontario, on the executive of the Niagara HRPAO and in his retirement, actively in Brantford with Kiwanis, Probus, his Twenty Investors and St. Andrews Church. Don was many things – an independent thinker, a tinkerer, an adventurous wanderer, a strategic bridge player. He enjoyed his students and loved life, his family, his friends, his boats and the cottage. Visitation will be held at McCleister Funeral Home, 495 Park Road North, Brantford on Wednesday, March 28, from 2:00 – 4:00 p.m. A funeral service will be held in the chapel on Thursday, March 29, at 12:30 p.m., with luncheon reception to follow.
