For those who were “made” or
visited the Kappa Kastle from 1972 to 1982 meet,
knew and experienced Brother G. Ryck Curry. Brother
Curry was the last Brother to live at the Kappa Kastle.
He took on the job to take care of the Kappa Kastle,
when Mom’s the house mother retired. Brother
Curry would help the young brothers who would visit
and live at the Kappa Kastle. Brother Curry was also
known for being able to break up a Province Council
Meeting and not being afraid to ask questions and
was an advocate for the one brother one vote campaign.
He helped to make many young brothers nupes.
Brother Curry was a 1969 initiate of the Upsilon
chapter. He later joined the Los Angeles Alumni Chapter,
and during his final years when his health began
to fail he joined the Long Beach Inglewood South
Bay Alumni Chapter. Brother Curry passed away to
the Chapter invisible in late August of 2005. Ryck
was cremated and his ashes scattered at Sea with
only his family and a few friends’ presents.
A private omega service was held on Sunday September
4th 2005 at the Kappa House followed by a public
memorial service. The evening was a celebration of
the life of G. Ryck Curry that ended with a toast
of Ryck's favorite drink Coke and Couvessior.
Curry will definitely be missed.
