It is with great shock and sadness that we have to announce that Brent Mahood died of an apparent heart attack Monday evening, October 29, just shy of his 68th birthday.
An excellent high-school athlete, especially at basketball, Brent probably had little choice but to follow in the footsteps of his dad, Alex, into rugby. Starting in his late teens, he played first-team centre for the North Shore All Blacks and then Capilanos throughout the 1970s. In later years, his son Robin carried on the Mahood rugby tradition.
Our condolences to the entire Mahood family. At this time a private family gathering is all that is planned. We will remember Brent as a teammate and friend at the Nov 17 home game.
