We are sad to announce the death of Donald Fenn Currie on November 5, 2021 at Mount Sinai Hospital in Toronto.  He was 91 years old.  Don was born in Windsor, Ontario.

His career, after graduating from McGill University took him to the four corners of the world, ending in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. He retired to the South of France, started a small wine export firm before settling down to write a great number of blogs under the heading of “JUSTTRYINGTOSORTITOUT”, some  dealing with the great themes of his life time, some musing about the foibles of the human condition, some droll, directed at children, and a few wickedly satiric.

We will miss - and never forget - his infectious joie de vivre, his talent for storytelling, his sense of humour.

Irene, David, Catherine and Peter, his children; Bret, Zoe Jack, Samantha and Benn, his grandchildren; and Jaxon his great grandson.

Instead of flowers, if you wish, a donation to the Children's Defense Fund would be appreciated.

Private services have taken place.

We were very sorry to hear of Do n’s passing. He was a great friend and mentor to Thomas and a friend to Jane and Nicholas - a true gentleman and renaissance man.

Don was always a joy as a friend and mentor, full of intellect and fun. He left fond memories with a great many people. My family benefited greatly from his friendship. My condolences to the whole family.
