BEDARD, Ron

May 28, 1956 – Ottawa, ON
May 11, 2017 – Calgary, AB

Ron, beloved husband of Tracy Bedard (nee Chick) of Calgary, AB, passed away on May 11, 2017 at the age of 60 years. Ron is survived by his wife Tracy, daughters Melissa and Samantha. He is also survived by his siblings Suzanne Lachance (Shayne); Anne Foulds (Llewellyne); Marcel (Jean) and Marie-Claire Bedard. Ron will also be missed by his nieces and nephew – Christine Beaudoin, Andrea Lachance, and Scott Lachance. He was predeceased by his parents Dora (nee Robinson) and Laurent Bedard.

Ron loved to travel and enjoyed riding his motorcycle towards the mountains. He also loved to work with his hands, whether it was in the garden or with wood. Ron had a very giving, caring soul and would help anyone who needed assistance.

Ron was diagnosed with ALS early last year, a battle he fought with courage, dignity and profound sense of humor. His caregivers, volunteers and everyone who found themselves in his company could not believe his attitude and the positivity he expressed despite this terrible disease. Ron’s spark, positive spirits and sense of humor were present to the end! His courage and his strength and bright smile are nothing short of admirable and will be remembered by all who met him.

No formal service will take place as per Ron’s wishes. However, a gathering of family and friends to celebrate his life will be held on Sunday, May 28 from 1-4 pm at Limericks, 7304 Macleod Trail S, Calgary, AB T2H 0L9.

If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to the A.L.S. Society of Alberta (Lou Gehrig’s Disease), 7874 – 10th Street N.E., Calgary, AB T2E 8W1, www.alsab.ca .

Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Ron Bedard, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Fish Creek, 14441 Bannister Road S.E., Calgary, AB Telephone: 403-256-9575.

    To Tracy and the girls,

    I am incredibly saddened by the news of Ron’s passing. I had the pleasure of working with Ron and having some great laughs along the way. I have fond memories of our visit to Shark club where we met and had a great evening with you all. I know that somewhere Ron is riding his motorcycle and his hair is blowing in the wind. May he rest in peace. All the best to you all.

    JB
