In his earlier years, he and his wife, Nancy enjoyed waterskiing together. Arthur loved his family dearly and he will be missed by all who knew and loved him. Those left to cherish his memory are his loving wife of 57 years, Nancy Thompson Currie, along with his sons, Jeff Currie, Phil Currie (Delaina) and Eric Currie (Tammy); grandchildren, Brooklyn Honeycutt (David), Macy Currie, Colton Currie, Alexis Graham, McKenzie Graham, Payton Currie; one great-grandchild, Braylyn Honeycutt; and his sisters, Margie Barnes (Jim) and Debbie Locklear (Kenneth). Visitation for Arthur will be Thursday, July 2, from 5 to 7 p.m., at River of Life Church. Funeral services will follow at 7 p.m., officiated by Pastor Brian Rabon.
