From 1925 to 1940, W.C. was considered to be one of the better curling skips in Nova Scotia and his skipped teams won many a bonspiel. From 1925 to 1937, he won many trophies for rifle shooting at the West Paradise Range and in the Provincial Shoot-Off at Bedford each year.
It is with little wonder that such a fine athlete and sportsman would also be a major supporter of sports in the area. In the early part of the century, transportation was a major problem for sports teams and therefore, W.C.’s car, one of the first in the region, was well used to assist in transporting teams to and from games. Up to the war years in 1939, he was often the chief organizer and manager of many fine ball teams from Kingston and sometimes from Middleton as well. From 1920 to 1935, W.C. umpired baseball at the higher levels throughout the Maritimes. He was a staunch supporter of the Annapolis County Rifle Association.
W.C. Spurr, besides his involvement in sports, found time to be recognized as one of the finest apple growers in the Annapolis Valley, a legacy carried on first by his sons and then by his grandsons. He passed away in Melvern Square on October 7, 1963.
