It is with extreme sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Jason Currie in Cranbrook on Sunday, February 15, 2015 at 25 years of age.
Jason was born on August 10, 1989 in Cranbrook. He was a happy young man who was full of kindness and unconditional love for everyone he crossed paths with. He touched so many people’s lives in a positive way. He had a great love of animals, his family and of wrestling. He got great pleasure from being outdoors and at one with nature with the Kip program where he was able to express himself freely. Jason was employed for 13 years at the Townsman as a newspaper carrier. He received tremendous enjoyment from his duties as a newspaper carrier, and the people whom he met throughout the years while working for the newspaper. He loved going to hockey games with his older brother and going on the big truck with his mom. Jason loved music. He especially liked the song We’re Not Gonna Take It by Twisted Sister. Jason will be missed dearly, but his smile will be remembered forever by his family and friends.
Jason is survived by his mother Cathy, father Ken, brothers Shaun and Chayce, sisters Sheena and Chelsea, grandmothers Grace Currie and Denise Shingar, uncles Terry Shingar, Lloyd Umpherville, Mel Shingar, Harvey Shingar Jr., Barry Shingar, Jon Shingar, Steve Beamish and Jeff Popoff, aunts Cheryl Popoff, Susan Beamish, Karen Umpherville, Dayle Shingar, and Debbie Shingar, cousins Amanda Shingar, Dayna Shingar, Josh Shingar, Austin Shingar, Nicko Shingar, Natalie Umpherville, Kaitlyn Umpherville, Catherine Umpherville and Brady Shingar. He was predeceased by his grandpa Cecil Currie and his grandpa Harvey Shingar.
