Devon Mason Currie, 20, of Cumming lost his battle on Dec. 14, 2008, after enduring Ewing's Sarcoma, a rare bone cancer, for nearly two years. David and Mary Currie were given the privilege of raising their precious son, Devon Mason Currie, since April 27, 1988.
Devon was an athlete and warrior at an early age. He was involved with Boy Scouts, loved to fish and river raft, and competed in multiple sports. He began soccer at the age of four, played baseball, basketball and football. At South Forsyth High School he focused on football, basketball and track, and lettered in all three his junior and senior years. Devon was a very hardworking athlete that gave 100 percent every play, every race and every throw. He strived to be his best and was a talented, formidable opponent that loved the spirit of competition. He was a member of FCA and attended Perimeter Church.
Fulfilling his dream to play college football, Devon was given that opportunity by getting a full scholarship to Southeastern Louisiana University where he majored in criminal justice. His dream was shattered when he had to leave his teammates to endure chemo, radiation, rib removal and two stem-cell transplants. Even this and further treatments failed to extend his life.
His final wish was granted by an anonymous angel from our Deerlake neighborhood. He spent his last day riding 35 miles on his new Suzuki SX650 motorcycle. His family has never seen him so happy, as he told his mom that while on his bike, it felt like he didn't even have cancer.
The members of Devon's family that are mourning his absence from their lives include his parents, David and Mary; brothers, Shane and Mason; both paternal and maternal grandparents; many aunts, uncles, and cousins; and hundreds of friends near and far.
Without intending to, Devon's life became an inspiration to others. He humbly went about living life, not knowing that his struggles and journeys would reach so many, young and old. He will be remembered in hearts all over the world, as evidenced by his guestbook on
In lieu of physical mementos, please consider donating to Devon's Always Fighting Cancer Fund. Fund details are included on his Web site. The money donated will go towards helping those in the future inflicted with cancer so that they might suffer less and their lifelong side effects will be minimized should they be fortunate enough to survive.
Devon's Celebration of Life service will be at 2 p.m. on Dec. 19 at Perimeter Church in Duluth.
