Pumpkin king Howard Dill died in Windsor (b. 1934). He was a legendary farmer and winner of largest pumpkin weigh-offs, as well as a world-renowned grower of giant gourds. Dill was also an avid hockey
historian and enabled Windsor’s claim to the title “Birthplace of Hockey.” (Also see Garth Vaughan, September 1, 1996.). (Photo: Howarddill.com.)
