Curling icon mourned
By Don CROSBY, Thursday, September 06, 2007
Long-time curling journalist and promoter Doug Dean MAXWELL died of cancer at his Waterloo home Friday. He was 80.
MAXWELL was a curling journalist, broadcaster, event manager and promoter. He started his journalism career with Canadian Broadcasting Corporation-television and published his fourth curling book, "Tales of a Curling Hack", in 2006. He also owned and published The Curling News for 20 years and was until recently a Markdale resident.
"The World Curling Federation regrets the passing of a major contributor to global curling," federation president Les Harrison said in a statement Tuesday.
From 1968 to 1985, MAXWELL served as executive director of the Air Canada Silver Broom, the men's world curling championship.
"Doug's work with the Silver Broom took the world curling championship to a new level and had a large impact on the development of the sport of curling in new markets," said Harrison. Doug and his wife, Anne, moved to "Larchwood" - a farm in the Markdale area - in 1990, later moving to a house in town. They were involved with the Annesley United Church.
"He was a gentleman. Very committed to his family, to the church, the community and to the hospital fundraising project," said Dan Rose, who first met the couple at church.
"He had great communication skills and was always willing to help out when he could. It was an honour to know the man."
The former pastor of the church remembers MAXWELL's voice.
"He had one of those voices that you could listen to for a long time," said Don Pletsch. "He had great number of experiences&hellip he was great storyteller… and he liked to laugh."
In recent years, MAXWELL was heavily involved in the fundraising campaign for a new hospital in Markdale.
"He was so pleasant and so helpful," said Doctor Hamilton Hall.
Hall said MAXWELL brought his years of experience as a journalist to the preparation of some radio ads.
Doug MAXWELL 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."
The MAXWELLs had recently moved to Waterloo.
He is survived by his wife Anne, his children Ward MAXWELL and wife Deborah KIRKEGAARD, Gord MAXWELL and wife Pat FENNESSY, Janet MAXWELL and her husband Gary WICKHAM, James MAXWELL and his wife Karen MAXWELL. He had eight grandchildren.
A memorial service will take place on Sunday at 2 p.m. at Annesley United Church in Markdale, followed by a reception.
