Memorable Manitobans: Coleman “Cole” Staniloff (1923-2003)

Curler.

Born at Winnipeg in 1923, son of Max and Sophie Staniloff, he grew up at Buchanan, Saskatchewan. He played many sports and his greatest achievement was playing in the 1963 Brier as the third on Hersh Lerners’ Manitoba championship curling team, for which he was inducted into the Jewish Sports Hall of Fame. He is remembered as a fierce competitor but one for whom sportsmanship and fellowship always came first. He died at Victoria, British Columbia on 27 March 2003 and was interred in the Rosh Pina Cemetery.
