Many of us will remember David fondly as a keen sportsman.
He was first and foremost an accomplished yachtsman, winning many prestigious races, as well as being in business selling yachts in Granville Island. In addition, he excelled at cricket, rugby, squash, and golf. He joined West Point in 2002, was Director-at-Large in 2005, and Club captain in 2006. Lorne Lindsay featured him in one of his memorable  “Member’s Sketches” in 2014. We will always remember
David for his jovial camaraderie and his unique style. We’ll miss him greatly.

Old-timers will remember Dr. John Dennison who was a member of WPGC from
1994 to 2006. At least 30 of our current members will remember John
who died on June 26 at the age of 87.

John moved to Canada from Australia in1957. After earning his doctorate from Washington State University, he joined the Faculty of Education at UBC in 1962.
He retired as Emeritus Professor of Higher Education in 1994 after having served in the Department of Higher Education for thirty years as a teacher and researcher in his discipline, as well as with the Department of Educational Studies.

He had been actively involved in the development of the higher education system in B.C. from the early 1960's and was regarded as a top expert on Canadian Community Colleges. John was a superlative educator, revered by his students, respected by his peers and renowned as a raconteur.

He is fondly remembered in the WPGC as a popular and proficient auctioneer at many of our Palcutta events before he retired from the Club in 2006.
John was a lifelong advocate and supporter of amateur sports.

More

We are saddened by Chris' sudden passing on Wednesday, March 9. He was born in North Bay, Ontario and spent many years in Ontario before relocating
to Burnaby in 2004.

Chris studied chemistry at Algonquin College in Ottawa, but it was difficult finding a job in that field at the time so he worked for a couple of years doing road surveying. As this was seasonal work, he worked on contract jobs for the Federal Government during the winter; this eventually led to the offer of permanent employment. Although it wasn't in his original plans, he thus became a career civil servant, working as a programmer doing software development. He received his computer training through "on the job" courses as well as a few evening courses at Algonquin College. His career began with Statistics Canada, where he stayed for nine years, working at the government complex called Tunney's Pasture, west of downtown Ottawa. He transferred to the Canada Revenue Agency in downtown Ottawa, retiring from there in 2004.

Chris joined our Club in 2006 and it wasn't long before he was recruited by the Vice Captain to serve on the Captain's Table, where he did a stellar job. This led to him being nominated to be Vice Captain-Scoring the following year. He served on our Board of Directors for two years in that capacity and then accepted an appointment as an Advisor to the Board in 2013 with the responsibility of maintaining our eHandicap system. Currently, he was preparing to undertake the critical roles of Vice Captain-Scoring, the eHandicap up-date reporting process and the senior, post-match position at the Captains' Table.

Chris has enjoyed many successes on the links as a West Point member. In 2010, he was the Club Match Play Champion and also won the Len Brown Memorial trophy at the Putting Jamboree. Playing in the 0-18 handicap division, he's won the Bud Brown Eclectic four times, the Joe Dwyer trophy in 2009 and the Ed Angel competition (with Jim Mackie) in 2011. In 2012, he was the recipient of the Bob Jack Award, signifying his proficiency in the Away games.

Kent Curley

1940 - 2015


Palcutta Auctioneer
2008 - 2014

Palcutta 2006

Kent joined West Point Golf Club in 2006 and will be remembered for his great personality and, of course, for the role he played in our annual Palcutta competition.  Kent served as our Palcutta Auctioneer for the past 6 or 7 years, working closely with coordinator and good friend, Bill Trory.  Kent did his research and always had a keen insight into the potential contribution of each competitor.  He played on the winning Palcutta team his first year with the Club, in a foursome with
Brian Ciccozzi, Dave Stephens and Michael Alms.
Kent was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer a short time ago (after the 2014 AGM) and realized that there wasn’t a cure, but he was still positive and upbeat – as he always was.  After undergoing several chemotherapy treatments, he lost his
short battle on June 11, 2015.
In addition to being a valued member of WPGC, Kent was an avid long-time curler and had a tremendous passion for making beer and wine – and he was extremely good at it.  He was also a meticulous gardener and enjoyed the time spent
shaping and tending to his garden.
Kent was 74 years old and will be missed by his family and many friends
in all walks of life.

Don passed away Thursday, Feb. 5.  Many of us will have enjoyed his enthusiasm for our Club, life in general, and the wonderful stories he told of his 95 years of life.
We also remember the great article in the Vancouver Sun last year on Don and his golfing prowess and his promotion of our West Point Club.
Whilst his membership with West Point was short, his golf life spanned 85 years.
Andrew Hobbs

His shining hour in golf came at Fraserview on March 26, 1993 at age 73, he recorded a 67. He estimated, he had shot his age 30+ times.
Don was out of golf partners in early 2014 ( wonder why ?) and I asked him if he would like to join West Point. He accepted and I still remember the look on members' faces when I said he was 94. He really enjoyed his year at West Point and on many occasions he said to me "What a great bunch these guys are".
We should all be proud to have had him in our midst.

ROGER KRONQVIST
August 9, 1932 - November 8, 2014

Sadly, we have learned that Roger passed away peacefully yesterday morning, at home.  He'd been to the Lions game on Friday night (November 7th) and wasn't pleased with the result.  On Saturday morning he was sitting in his recliner reading the sports page when he dozed off.  After about an hour, when his wife thought he should be waking up, she tried to wake him and he didn't respond.

Roger joined West Point in 1995 and remained an active playing member until he opted to become an Associate Member in 2011 and continue his affiliation with the Club. He retired from West Point in 2012.

He won the Handicap Championship in 2003, 2008 and 2010.
In 2005 and 2006, he was a member of the Putting Jamboree's winning Team.
In 2007, his foursome won the Designated Ball Competition.
The Hole in One (Langara G.C.- #2), in 2006, was a great delight to him.

Since joining West Point in 2007, Laurie was a familiar sight on the golf course with his truly relaxed swing.  He won many competitions, including the Super Senior Championship from 2009-11 and the Senior Master Championship in 2013.  In June 2014, he tied for the lead in the Senior Master Stroke Play and was declared runner-up, based on back nine scores.
 
Laurie introduced the Vintage Cup competition in 2013 in an effort to recognize the achievements of all members, according to their age group.  He won the 80+ category in the inaugural year of the event. 

He served as Club Captain from 2010-11 and spent the past 3 years on the Board of Directors, providing guidance and leadership.  His vast golfing knowledge and expertise were invaluable to our Club and Laurie made a major contribution to WPGC. 

Laurie was an enthusiastic and key figure in our 80th birthday celebration in 2012.  He quietly orchestrated the celebration and was the emcee for that portion of our AGM; he enlightened members with highlights of the Club's history, regaled us with jokes, and recognized various groupings of members.  After Laurie led us in the slightly off-key rendition of "Happy Birthday", an almost unrecognizable bewigged, skirted and army booted member emerged from a large decorated paper barrel cake!  Laurie's dedication to the spirit of West Point was much in evidence.

His friendliness and professionalism will be greatly missed.

It is another sad day for West Point Golf Club. Bud Cowlin, a member since 2005, succumbed to his illness on July 8, 2014 at the age of 76.

Bud was a big man in many ways; he had a big heart and great strength of character. He often asked what he could do to help, so became a volunteer at the Captain's Table, where he assisted for 4 years.  It was a good role for Bud as he got to talk to most of the members when they finished their game.
 
Bud was one of the few two-time winners of the Palcutta competition.  He was an individual with great wit and humour, and will definitely be missed.

Art’s cheery disposition was much appreciated and he always had time for members, whether they were old-timers or newer members.  It was a joy to play golf with Art and chat with him on the 19th hole. 

He was a man of great character and will be missed by his many friends.

David Fairweather passed away on April 3, at age 89.
Dave's beloved wife, Gloria, had predeceased him 16 days earlier.

Dave was a Charter Member of West Point Golf Club in 1986 and provided excellent leadership during the formative years of our Club. He served on the Executive for 8 years, including two terms as Captain in 1989, 1990 and 2002, 2003, and President in 1991. Dave was not only a student of the game, a master of golf rules, a strong believer in golf etiquette, but a tireless volunteer on behalf of our members.
In 2008, he became the first member of our Club to be honoured with
a Lifetime Membership.

Dave's successful career as a pilot with Air Canada culminated with his
post-retirement appointment as Assistant Commissioner of the Air Canada Pavilion
at Expo 86 - a real feather in his cap - where he oversaw the construction and operation of the world class exhibit.

Due to failing health over the past few years, Dave had not been able to play golf with us, but still maintained contact with many members and attended as many social functions as possible.

We will truly miss this fine gentleman.

We’ve lost a true friend.

In his professional life, Jim worked tirelessly with the students, teachers and coaches in the Vancouver and Burnaby school districts, as well as prospective teachers at UBC and SFU.  As the District Principal for Physical Education and Athletics in Vancouver, he was a strong leader and well-respected by all his colleagues. 
Jim not only cared deeply for what he believed in,
but he also fought for the principles he stood for. 
He was a man of tremendous character.

He joined West Point in 1996 and was an Associate Member for the past couple of years, as he was no longer able to play golf to his standards, but wanted the maintain the contact with members. Wally was quite an athlete in his younger days and is fondly remembered by his fellow West Point members and high school friends, Al Williams and Norm Kent, among many others. Wally was held in high regard by the membership and had a great sense of humour; his good nature was legendary. Wally was a professional engineer in the construction division of BC Hydro and took up golf about 35 years ago. He enjoyed the camaraderie it provided.

Wally and I talked and exchanged emails over the past few years. When he was unable to attend the AGM, I inquired if everything was alright. He responded, "When I can't attend a function related to golf, things are not OK."

Wally will be missed.

Thoughts for the day:
"Remember that happiness is a way of travel, not a destination" – Roy Goodman
"Saying good-bye is the most difficult thing in life – & we never learn to be good at it."
"You cannot do a kindness too soon, for you never know how soon it will be too late."

George retired from the RCMP with the rank of Assistant Commissioner. He first played golf in Quebec City at age 26 and fell in love with the game. He played as often as his work schedule would allow and within 10 years, he was a 4 handicap and experienced 5 holes-in-one!

George first shot his age at Langara in 1994 at age 75 and repeated this feat 14 years later (2008), shooting 89 at Langara.

Honourary Member
Ed Angel
1988 & 1991
Charter Member



Ed was an active member in the West Point Golf Club dating back to the ‘50’s and played an important role in the planning and survival of the Club in subsequent years.
He felt with considerable pride, that the West Point Golf Club had a vital role in the golfing community by providing the opportunity for friendly competition and fellowship.  The Club has grown and thrived over the years due in great part to his concern for structure and respect for the Rules of Golf.
Back in July of 1973, Ed undertook a study which led to the men’s ‘Mid Week Club’ being formally authorized on May 7, 1974, as a division of the WPGC which played on Saturday and Sunday.  He was appointed Captain and Representative to the parent Club and at this time made a trophy in his name, available for the first year of competition.
Ed was very involved in the planning in early 1986, with the relocation of the West Point Golf Club to the McCleery Golf Course.  This had been made necessary due to the fact that new University Golf & Country Club structure, would no longer provide playing privileges for the WPGC.
In 1988 Ed was a very effective Vice Captain; continued on the Executive in 1989 as Secretary/Treasurer; President in 1990 and Past President in 1991.
He must be recognized for having made a very significant contribution in 1991 when he put together the history of the West Pont Golf Club from its beginning in 1932, up to 1990.  His dedication, talent and research, provides a look back to the beginning of the University Golf Course in 1930 and how in 1932 with the help of Harry Winder, the much respected first Pro for the Course,
the West Point Golf Club was formed.
We have just completed out 78th year, are a strong organization and will remember the important part which Ed Angel played in our history.

Attendees are invited to bring a memory or story to share that would bring a smile to George's face. In lieu of flowers, you are asked to send donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or Diabetes Association.

The full obituary notice appeared in Saturday's edition of the Vancouver Sun.

Take care,
Lorne

"Many of you will have already heard that Dunc passed away in Palliative Care
at the VGH Friday afternoon.  As a Club we have been fortunate to have Dunc
as a player, friend and Board Member.  Nothing was too much trouble and even
on the telephone his smile was always evident."
