Perry Gilmore Currin, 82, died of heart failure Monday, January 17, at his home in San Antonio, Texas. He leaves his loving wife of 52 years, Vi Currin, his children Diane Sowell, Sherry Fox, and Chris Currin, ten grandchildren, and many close friends. Mr. Currin was born on September 27, 1928 in Washington, D.C. to Thadeous and Dorothy Currin. He played baseball for a short time with the St. Louis Browns in 1947; at 18, he was one of the youngest players to ever sign in the Major League at the time. His time with the Browns was followed by a short career in the minor leagues. He met is wife, Vi Stasko, in Washington D.C., and they were married in August of 1958. After many moves on account of work and family, he and his wife settled in San Antonio. Mr. Currin was an active and enthusiastic member of the Knights of Columbus, and a Eucharistic minister at St. Mary's Catholic Church in downtown San Antonio. He enjoyed golfing with friends and spending time with family. He was a loving husband, and extremely proud of his children and grandchildren, who brought him great joy. A man of great humility, Mr. Currin never thought of himself as someone special, but he was, nonetheless, special to all who knew him. His quick wit often brought smiles to the faces of those around him. He will be greatly missed. His memorial service will be held Saturday, February 5, 9 AM, at St. Mary's Catholic Church in San Antonio.
