Our 2008 blogpost first reported his initial hospitalization and sadly, from that day forward, the curling world has steadily heard less and less from one of its favourite sons.
The Shorty Jenkins Classic, the Brockville, Ont. event that is a mainstay on the World Curling Tour, is still going strong – and there’s no doubt the September 2014 edition will be an extra-special tribute to the man who loved to wear pink.
That blogpost, above, also provided a mailing address in Trenton, Ont. where friends and fans could send messages of support. Today, that address can receive messages of great memories.
