Ronald passed away peacefully on December 9, 2023 at the Drumheller Health Centre, Acute Care at the age of 76 years. Born in Wayne and growing up in Midland prior to moving to Drumheller in the late 1970’s, Ron is survived by sister, Brenda Jones, and brothers, Roger, Richard and Barry, along with nieces, Natalie and Lisa and nephews, Joel and Willie. He was predeceased by a sister, Beverly and Mother, Luby and Father, Gino.
Ron was an avid sportsman in the Valley all his life, playing hockey at all age categories right up to Old Timers, and his passion was Baseball, having played Little League, Juvenile, Senior Men’s, and even Old Timers Ball for years. If Ron wasn’t in a Sports Uniform playing, he’d be coaching and volunteering in some capacity. He also volunteered for the local Drumheller Dragons Jr. “A” Hockey Club, having Goal Judged for some 15 years, prior to worsening health conditions.
Ron worked in the Canada Correctional Services for some 35 years as a guard, first employed in Bowden for a couple years; then the Drumheller Penitentiary up until health conditions forced his retirement.
As per Ron’s wishes, there will not be any formal funeral services held. A private family gathering will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, Drumheller Minor Hockey, and/or Drumheller Minor Baseball Associations.
Courtney-Winter’s Funeral Homes are in care of arrangements.
