Neil V. Curry
Died: Jan 31, 2021
Neil V. Curry, retired Fire Commissioner of the City of Yonkers, passed away in his home on January 31 surrounded by his children.  He is predeceased by his wife of 60 years Jacquelyn (Swantek) Curry.

Neil was a Korean War veteran serving in the US Navy on the aircraft carrier USS Boxer.

He was the father of six children: Kimberli Curry-Gardner, Gabrielle Curry (deceased), Jacquelyn David, Neil Curry Jr., Brenden Curry, and Christopher Curry.

As a father, he instilled in his children an appreciation of the “little things”, which enriched all of our lives.  We will always know the love of his “let it all out” hugs.  Neil will be remembered for his integrity, strength, and patience.
