Christopher Len Curry, 41, passed away unexpectedly on June 6 at Emory Saint Joseph's Hospital in Atlanta, GA. His husband, Jason Phoebus, the love of his life was by his side.

Christopher was born on September 6, 1975, in Bloomington, IN. He grew up with a large extended family with whom he enjoyed sharing holidays and events throughout his life. He was a graduate of Bloomington High School South and graduated from University of Miami in Miami, FL. He and Jason were married in New York’s Central Park on June 21, 2014.

Christopher spent more than the last 10 years of his career working in both audit and claims at Assurant in Atlanta, GA.

Christopher lived life to the fullest. He loved camping, fishing, hiking and anything that involved being outdoors. He spent many hours entertaining his nieces Carmen, Stella, and Lila Bays. Wherever Chris and Jason went, they took their faithful dogs, Bets, a rescued greyhound, and Tali, also a rescue dog.

When friends and family visited Atlanta, he thoroughly enjoyed being guide and host for all of them. He was even known to have planned scavenger hunts at important Atlanta sights and created personalized around town travel guides for first time visitors. He took great pride in his culinary skills and was always eager to throw together a dinner party or BBQ for family and friends. He was a joy to all who were lucky enough to be in his company. He packed more into his 41 years than imaginable.

Christopher is survived by his husband, Jason Phoebus, his paternal grandmother, Barbara Curry, his parents, Stuart and Sherrill (Lindsey) Curry, brothers Curtis and Kevin Curry, nephews Alec and Evan Curry, all from Bloomington, Uncles Phil and Jan Curry, of Austin, Steve and Marty Curry of Seattle, Bob and Valerie Lindsey of Bloomington, and Aunt Susan (Lindsey) and Al Velasquez, of Bloomington, cousins Niamh Curry, Lisa Webb, Sarah Curry, Lauren Bays, Courtney Hill, Anthony Lindsey, and Andrew Lindsey and their families.
