Ronald Culshaw Obituary


Ron was born in Drumheller on January 12, 1948. He married his childhood sweetheart Linda in 1968

and they moved to Calgary in 1969 where they raised 3 children, John Culshaw, Kathy Culshaw and Rob

Culshaw. Ron took his schooling in Drumheller and received a Masters in Sheet Metal from SAIT in

1970. While in Calgary Ron worked for several heating outfits as well as ATCO for a few years and spent

his leisure time coaching hockey, baseball and a senior girl’s softball team. Once their children were

grown, Ron and Linda returned to Drumheller where Ron was employed with Hi-Lite Exteriors until he

retired in 2017. Luckily Ron took up golfing in his later years and gladly spent as much time as he could

on the local course as well as various courses around Alberta.

Ron is survived by his wife of 55 years, Linda, son John (Lorna), daughter Kathy (Ken) son Rob (Debbie),

brother Keith (Joyce), 6 grandchildren, 6 great grandchildren, numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ron was predeceased by his father, John Culshaw in 1959, his step-father Arthur Townsend in 1994,

mother Doris Townsend in 2016, sister Doreen Nytchay in February 2023 as well as sisters-in-law Shirley

Scott and Linda Scott, brothers-in-law Jim Scott,  Donald Senior and William Nytchay. He was also predeceased by his

father and mother-in-law John and Anna Scott and nephew Kim Nytchay.

Ron’s family would like to thank the prompt response of the local EMS, Drumheller Fire Department,

RCMP and the ambulance team out of Three Hills. A special thank you to Auntie Pat for her assistance in

our time of need.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, September 23, 2023 at 1:00 pm at the Midland Hall. If
