Fred McCurdyGolf Honoree: Frederic McCurdy

Mount Saint Mary College is proud to honor Fred McCurdy posthumously as our golf honoree. Fred passed this past August and was loved and respected by everyone who knew him. The always cheerful Fred was dedicated to his family, business and community. His beloved wife, Betsy was always there to support Fred in his endeavors.

Together Fred and Betsy raised four successful children; Rick, Bill, Bob and Nancy, who have blessed them with thirteen grandchildren.

Fred founded GTI Graphic Technology, Inc. in 1975 in Newburgh, NY. Currently, GTI has 33 employees and ships products for quality color viewing all over the world. Fred graduated with a degree in civil engineering from Tufts College where he met his wife Betsy. The young McCurdy family arrived in Newburgh in 1957 following Fred’s stint as a navigator in the Air Force in Cape Cod, MA.

Fred, the amazing optimist had a passion for participating in new endeavors and watching them thrive and grow, such as being a founding member of the Newburgh Symphony Orchestra. His other endeavors were President of the Hudson Valley Philharmonic, a board member of the Newburgh YWCA, a board member of the Holden Home, a Newburgh Rotarian and a Trustee of Mount Saint Mary College.

Please join us in honoring this great man who did good things because there were good things to do.
