That favourite phrase of our friend and curling companion Craig Taylor who has died, and will long linger in my mind. It was always accompanied by a wry smile indicating he didn’t really believe a word one was saying, but was too polite to say so.
It is with regret that we report the death of one of our longest serving members at SLWCC. In fact Craig was one of the original team that started the club in 2002. Craig passed away on Sunday 26 February 2012.
Just recently he was among us at our 10th Celebration Dinner when he took part in our celebration by blowing out the candles of the cake! Someone had put trick re-lighting candles on the cake so no matter how hard he huffed and puffed they would not be extinguished; he enjoyed the joke in his own quiet way.
Craig also played at Braehead with the wheelchair curlers. Lesser known to many is the fact that Craig also enjoyed playing Badminton with a small group of us.
We will miss him.
