March 28, 1952 – January 15, 2010
It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ron, on Friday, January 15, 2010 with his beloved life partner Elaine, daughter Jessica, mother Lorraine and brother Dave at his side.
Ron battled cancer for seven years with the same grace, courage, dignity and humour with which he approached most things in life. Ron was born in Watson, Sask., March 28, 1952 and grew up in the Parkdale neighbourhood of Calgary. He graduated with a B.A. from U of C and received his law degree from U of A in 1983. Ron was a well-respected lawyer who never turned away a client without means. He was as well known and sincerely liked by people living on the streets of downtown as he was by judges, lawyers and prosecutors he worked with everyday. In spite of his professional skills and successes everyone close to Ron knew he would still rather be golfing or fishing.
Most precious of all to Ron was the love of his life and partner of thirty years, Elaine O’Hara; his beloved daughter Jessica Mahlberg, of whom he was immensely proud; and his dearly loved mother Lorraine Brown. Ron will also be deeply missed by his niece Skylah Hicks; granddaughter Elysse Landry; son-in-law Dorian Landry; sisters-in-law Maureen O’Hara and Cathy King; dear friend Daryl Harrison; nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, in-laws and friends.
A Celebration of Ron’s life will be held at The Silver Springs Community Centre (5720 Silver Ridge Drive N.W.), on Sunday, January 24, 2010 from 3:00 to 6:00p.m. You may forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.
