It is with sadness that the Manitoba Basketball Hall of Fame shares the news of the passing of one of its inducted members in Stew Farnell. Stew was a member of the Class of 1996 in the Builder category. He was a dedicated high school coach for over 25 years and spent most of his coaching career at Vincent Massey, Brandon, coaching the varsity girls program. The Vincent Massey Varsity Girls' Teams have been Provincial Finalists eight times and Provincial Champions in 1974, 1975, 1985, and 1986.
Stew worked at Clear Lake Golf Course as a host and was a familiar face to all golfers. More information on Stew and a service can be found at...
Our thoughts are with the Farnell family.
