These are the memories we live for -- Dad with great grandchild AdriannaMy father, George Ernest Currlin, died on March 19, 2009 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. after battling a sudden respiratory illness. He had a near-complete lifetime without illness. He was 80 years old.

George was born in New York City and lived in Cuba as a youth during the great depression. He served as a Sergeant in the Army during the Korean War from 1951-1953. Thereafter, he served 6 years in the army reserves and was hired by the Port Authority of NY and NJ in 1958. While at the Port Authority, he resumed his nighttime studies at Columbia University for an engineering degree. He retired as a computer operator and worked for the Port Authority for over 28 years.

George entered retirement early in 1986 and thoroughly enjoyed almost 23 years of it. He was happily married for almost 50 years and had the pleasure of knowing and participating in the lives of his grandchildren and great grandchild. He split his time between Florida and Ecuador with friends and family. He enjoyed the beach and mountains but really loved picking coconuts and mangos. Survivors include his wife (Norma), son and daughter (George, Norma), seven grandchildren (Christina, Sharyn, Anthony, Eric, Zachary, Marisa and Christopher) and great grandchild (Adrianna).
