Garnet Campbell, the "Little General" of the famous Campbell curling clan passed away December 30th, the winner of the 1955 Brier as the first Saskatchewan team to bring home the title. Instrumental in putting the Avonlea Curling Club in Saskatchewan on the map, Campbell even auctioned off carspiel proceeds and help to build a new three sheet club in 1951.
Representing Saskatchewan at 10 National Championships, Garnet Campbell was one of the game's early legends.
