    Dex Debbie

    Dex lost his brief battle with cancer on Friday, September 13.

    He is survived by his wife Debbie, sons Mike and Jeff, granddaughters Dani, Bailey, and Gracie, and sister Pam.

    Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers.

    Dex's presence at SPCC will likely never be replaced. He was a true icon of the sport we love and his loss will be felt all across the curling community.  Join us in remembering and celebrating the life our beloved manager, ice maker, and coach:

    Larry Piper Service Award
    Perry Tholl has been a member of the Tuesday work crew almost since he began curling, and was instrumental in the installation of our new windows upstairs.  He was also the person behind the "Curl with Dex" pins and the donation effort for kidney cancer research at SPCC.  Thanks for all your dedication and hard work, Perry!

    Honorary Lifetime Member
    Linda Lokensgard began curling in St Paul in 1986.  She was a very accomplished curler on ice, winning the state Mixed championship in 2000 and a silver medal at Nationals that year.  But her greatest achievements were off the ice.  In addition to being an amazing ambassador of the sport, Linda served at the Bonnies president from 1998-2000, and served as the first female President of the St Paul Curling Club from 2014-16.  She also was the driving force behind the creation of the St Paul Curling Foundation, which exists to raise money for junior curling, curling education, and the historic preservation of curling in St Paul.

    Sadly, Linda passed away on May 21 after a long health battle.  She will be missed by everyone who ever came in contact with her.  Her warm smile lit up the room and she was as gracious a curler as you'll ever meet.  Our thoughts and prayers go out to her husband Jim, and the rest of Linda's family.
