MAXWELL, Douglas Dean
Doug died peacefully, at home as he wished, on Friday, August 31, 2007 in his 80th year. Doug was a dear friend and loyal husband, a wonderful father, a delighted grandfather and father-in-law. His lifelong interest in journalism, broadcasting and curling and his wonderful supportive family permitted him, in his own words, “a life where he accomplished more than he thought possible.&rdquo Doug threw his first curling stone in 1949, starting a lifelong association with the sport. He served 20 years as the director of the World Curling Championship, and is credited with inventing curling's Skins Game. He wrote numerous books on the sport, including the bestseller Canada Curls, and published the Canadian Curling News for over 20 years. Doug and his wife Anne moved to “Larchwood&rdquo farm in the Markdale area in 1990, later moving to a house in town. His involvement in the community was rooted in Annesley United Church, where he and Anne made so many of their good Friends. In recent years, he was a key contributor to the fundraising campaign for Centre Grey Hospital and involved in numerous other community causes. Doug is survived by his loving wife of 54 years, Anne. He will always be close in the hearts of his children: Ward MAXWELL and wife Deborah KIRKEGAARD, Gord MAXWELL and wife Pat FENNESSY, Janet MAXWELL and husband Gary WICKHAM, James MAXWELL and wife Karen MAXWELL. Special Poppa to eight wonderful grandchildren: Jarret, Arlen, Emerson, Rhys, Sinead, Bobby, Georgia and Charlotte. He will be missed by his sister, Barbara Jane JOINER and her husband Bill, and his dear sister-in-law Mary Jane WARD. He is pre-deceased by his brother-in-law, Bill WARD. A memorial service to celebrate Doug's life will take place on Sunday, September 9 at 2 p.m. at Annesley United Church, Markdale, followed by a reception. In lieu of flowers, donations to Sick Children's Hospital, Oncology Department in memory of Doug and Arlen MAXWELL, or to a charity of your choice, would be gratefully appreciated.
