SAN ANGELO, TX — Cornerstone Builders’ founder David Currie announced he was retiring for good at the March 22, 2023 luncheon of the Home Builders Association of San Angelo at the Rogue on the River at River Terrace.
Currie sponsored the well-attended monthly luncheon and invited the speaker, Charles Johnson, executive director of Pastors for Texas Children. The Fort Worth Baptist pastor spoke about one of Currie’s top political issues: to be against school choice or vouchers. Currie is the former — and most effective — head of the Tom Green County Democrat Party who served through the 2018 elections. Since then, he has focused his politics on statewide issues such as fighting the Republican effort to offer school vouchers as part of statewide education reform movement during this legislative session.
Johnson did not disappoint. He delivered his full-throated condemnation of school vouchers with the hell, fire, and brimstone you’d expect from a Baptist preacher.
Currie is also a Baptist preacher, retired. But more than that, his Cornerstone Builders has been a fixture in the San Angelo region since Currie built his first spec home in 1995 and sold it in 1996. Currie served as president of the HBA of San Angelo for three terms over his 28 years as a builder.
Currie sat with his extended family of sons and grandsons. At the end of the meeting, he gave away 20 pounds of sausage from a startup sausage company called Drei Brüder, 570 Smith Blvd. The name of the company means ‘three brothers.’ His grandsons, Brian Raspberry, and identical twins Brett and Brent Raspberry, are involved. Currie’s daughter Candi Raspberry supervises the sausage company.
In retirement, Currie will operate a land development business with his sons called Paint Rock Investors 1879. The late David Blunt was Currie’s grandfather who settled in Concho County in that year. Currie’s sons Lance Currie, who is an attorney in Dallas, and Chad Currie, an investment advisor with Edward Jones, are partners.
