    The kindest man I have ever met. I had the pleasure of working for him for only a couple of years, and every single employee would do anything for Glenn. That's how much he was respected, admired and loved. I enjoyed every story and experience he shared and I always look for "the wings". You were an angel in disguise. Rest in peace Mr. Currie.

    Glenn was the nicest man and boss one could ever have. Like his time in the US Army, he took care of his men while we worked at Bodycote. Soft spoken but he commanded respect and admiration. We will truly miss Glenn 😢. Rest in Peace Glenn and remember the good times and "Triple V" celebrations we had.
