Sad News from Nova Scotia

Beloved manager of Mayflower Curling ...
Curling Club victim of scuba-diving mishap
By Ruth Davenport Metro
Share this Article
Contributed/Mayflower Curling Club David Jones.

The man who died in a scuba-diving mishap was a well-known member of the local curling community described as being nearly “synonymous” with one of the province’s premier rinks.

“For so many of us members, Dave himself is the personification of the Mayflower, so the thought of the club without him is just hard to process,” said Mayflower Curling Club president Jason Cooke on Monday.

Dave Jones, 58, passed away after being pulled out of the water by a relative in Blind Bay on Prospect Road around 6:15 p.m. Sunday.

Cooke said Jones had managed the curling club for 20 years, and news of his death hit the 500 members like a “bolt out of the blue.”

“He’s just a wonderful family man and really beloved by everyone at the club,” he said. “Just as the news is trickling out, the calls and emails coming in, it’s just been overwhelming.”

Cooke said the former curler took over as manager about 20 years ago and was in charge of virtually every facet of the club’s operations.

Cooke said Jones’ “indispensable” contributions as manager extended beyond taking care of the club’s facilities and programs.

“He was very people-oriented,” said Cooke. “He knew every single member’s name … and not only our names, but knew about us as people.”

Jones was also an accomplished icemaker, and had supervised ice-making duties for several events around Atlantic Canada.

Police and the medical examiner are still investigating the accident to determine what happened.

Funeral arrangements have yet to be finalized.
