Stories from the The Dory Shop

Remembering a master craftsman

We’re so pleased to be able to share with you these photos of a beautiful new stained glass window recently dedicated in loving memory of The Dory Shop’s longtime oar maker, master craftsman Milton Fancy.

The window was placed in the New Cornwall United Baptist Church, near the Fancy home, by Milton’s wife Melba, his sons Carson and Van, family and friends. A large crowd of family and friends from across Canada and the United States attended the dedication ceremony.

Made by stained glass artist Rick Wilson, the upper window features the crown of thorns and three spikes, while the lower section portrays a dory and four oars.

We’re very lucky that Van has continued the family tradition of crafting high quality oars and paddles. And we thank him for allowing us to share these photos.
