It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Spence Shiach. Born in Winnipeg, in January 1918, Spence passed away peacefully on August 16, 2015.
The former President (1964-1965) and an Honorary Life Member of the Fort Rouge CC was beloved by the many who came to know him over the years. He was instrumental in the planning and construction of the new club in 1959. Some have suggested that without his contribution at the time, there may not be a Fort Rouge Curling Club today. Certainly high praise, but by all accounts, most deserving.
The Board, staff, and membership of the Fort Rouge Curling Club would like to extend our deepest condolences to the family of Spence Shiach. We share in your loss.
A memorial service and celebration of life will be held on Thursday, August 27, 2015 at 2:00 p.m. at the Fort Rouge Curling Club in the "Dan Hildebrand Lounge".
