Philip Edward Currie

  • BORN: September 2, 1964
  • DIED: February 7, 2017
  • LOCATION: Essex, Connecticut

Philip Edward Currie, 52, died February 7, 2017 surrounded by his family. Phil was a graduate of Perrysburg High School class of 1983 in Perrysburg, Ohio and earned a Bachelor's degree in Product Design from Bowling Green State University. A man of many talents he had a broad career in product development, operations, and maintenance. Phil complimented all this work with numerous home construction projects and was the go to guy on home improvements. Phil's love of adventure started in his youth with family vacations such as a trip to Tobermory in Ontario, Canada where he would jump off a 50ft cliff into the icy Georgian Bay. This same spirit of adventure led to a move to Seattle, WA in 1991. Whether it be a hike up Mt. Rainier, camping in the Cascade Mountains or roaming through the Olympic Peninsula rain forest, Phil was in his element in the great outdoors. In 2001, the opportunity for a new adventure on the East Coast led him to eventually settle in Essex, CT. His biggest joy in life was his sons, Nick and Chris. Phil's fun, playful spirit and creativity was always evident in everything he did with his boys. Phil is survived by his wife, Beth, his two son's Nicholas and Christopher, his parents Richard and Doris, sister Linda (Greg), brother Jeff (Liz), and his nieces and nephews Amelia, Cameron, Evan, Eric, Alex, and Lucia. His friendly smile will be missed by all who knew him. Services will be held on Saturday, February 11 at 2:00pm at the First Congregational Church at 6 Methodist Hill, Essex, CT 06426. In lieu of flowers, a donation may be made to Essex Land Trust at or to the Currie Education Fund c/o Essex Saving Bank, 35 Plains Rd, Essex, CT 06426. To share a memory of Phil or send a condolence to his family, please visit Arrangements by Robinson, Wright & Weymer Funeral Home, Centerbrook.
