  • Retired Justice J. Gary Hastings, who served on Div. Four the entire time Curry was there, described him Friday as “an excellent colleague, collegial and cordial even when disagreeing on issues.” Curry helped the court dig out of a severe backlog, Hastings recalled, “and never complained.”
  • Div. Four Presiding Justice Norman Epstein remembered Curry as “a neat guy and a wonderful colleague” and recalled a visit to Curry’s garage, where Curry stored his “magnificent” collection of model trains.
