Always a good friend to me. As stated by others, a very good athlete. I played/lived in Midfield and enjoyed the competition when playing WITH or AGAINST Curry. We lost a good one! Thoughts are with the family.

I was fortunate to have coached Curry at Fairfield High School. He truly was a talented athlete and I remember him fondly. I remember him being an outstanding student and a wonderful individual. May you rest in peace Curry and thanks for the great memories you provided not only myself but the entire Fairfield community.

I loved Curry from the time I met him in the 7th grade. He was an extraordinarily gifted athlete and a sincerely kind and gentle soul. He was deeply dedicated to his family and friends and I know will be greatly missed by all who knew him. I pray his family is comforted by wonderful memories and surrounding love.

In loving memory of a wonderful person. Curry played baseball with my brothers at Midfield. My dad (David Haynes) was his coach. I also worked with Curry's mother, Betty, when she worked at Ebsco. My condolences to the Hand family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Curry what a friend from the Oaks! Loved the Hand family, He will be missed dearly from all us that grew up together in Glen Oaks. He was a very devote Christian when I was around him later on as an adult. God Bless the Hand family as you go thru this great loss
