Longtime staff member Philip Curry dies at 45

STANFORD -- Philip L. Curry, a Stanford University employee since 1972 and a former undergraduate student, died at his Palo Alto, Calif., home Saturday, Aug. 26, of complications related to AIDS. He was 45.

No services were held. Curry is survived by his mother, Doris, of Sweetwater, Texas, and a brother, Leigh, of New York City. The family prefers donations to an AIDS agency of the giver's choice.

Curry, a member of the class of 1972 who majored in sociology, was a senior systems analyst with Informaation Technology Systems and Services for the past three years. He previously held positions in Faculty and Staff Services, Student Affairs and elsewhere. His first job was in Residential Education.

"I've never met a more good-natured person than Phil, or with a more infectious laugh," said Norm Robinson, Stanford associate dean emeritus of student affairs and now executive director of AIDS Resources, Information and Services of Santa Clara County Inc.

"He was an extraordinarily generous individual," said Larry Horton, Stanford's director of government and community relations, who was Curry's freshman year resident assistant in Rinconada. "He'll be missed greatly by his friends and colleagues."
