Died: October 21, 2013 (Saskatoon, Saskatchewan)

Stan Sieffert, a Saskatoon firefighter, twice won the Carling Cup, emblematic of the Canadian Fire Fighters’ curling championship. Sieffert curled lead for Doug Wyatt’s rink, which claimed the cup in 1966 before a hometown crowd at the Granite club in Saskatoon, Sask. The Wyatt rink again won the firefighters’ title in 1970 at Shawinigan Falls, Que.

Both of those Wyatt rinks were inducted into the Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame in 1997.

Born in the prairie village of Dinsmore, Sieffert completed high school in Saskatoon, where he delivered Orange Crush before taking a job with Canadian Propane in Luseland. He then returned to Saskatoon, where he worked as a firefighter for 32 years before retiring with an inner-ear disorder. He died at Porteous Lodge in Saskatoon.
