Everard Doucet (D)

There are those in our provincial sporting fraternity who deserve recognition as builders of facilities or programs, organizations or clubs and leagues. The late Ev Doucet of Bathurst, a charter-member of that city’s Sport Hall of Fame, is one of those.

But, in the memories of those who knew him best, he was another kind of builder as well, - a builder of character, of sportsmanship, of values, and of a sense of community. Hockey was his greatest sporting love; his high school, juvenile, junior, intermediate and senior teams were perennial champions locally and provincially.

It has been suggested that: “… his interventions as a true sportsman need to be reiterated as a model for out youth”, a motion which all of us could and do enthusiastically second.

Enrolled in the New Brunswick Sports Hall of Fame, June 7th, 1986.
