R. G. (Bob) Curtis

Bob Curtis graduated from Peterborough minor lacrosse to the senior Timbermen in 1954, just in time to play on a Mann Cup winner. Although he played on four more Eastern Canada championship clubs, that was his only Mann Cup.

Noted for an ability to go into corners against larger opponents and usually come out with the ball, Bob was a tireless forward who was often under-rated and under-publicized — except by his teammates who spoke glowingly of his value to the team. His scoring records are incomplete, but it is known that from 1954 to 1959, he was always among the league’s top five scorers. Curtis had good speed and played a clean but tough game, his style complementing that of his linemates. A serious injury in 1963 prematurely ended his playing career.

Bob achieved a coaching mark almost impossible to equal in 1958 when he took New Grand Bantams through an unbeaten and untied season, including tournaments and the Ontario title. He also served Church League sports well in both softball and hockey, in every capacity up to President with Immaculate Conception teams.
