McPHEE – Ronald “Ron” George

May 15, 1937 – May 9, 2011

In loving memory of Ronald George McPhee as he passed away after a brief struggle with cancer at age 73.

Ron was born in Red Deer, AB, the youngest son of Jim and Minnie McPhee. His time was spent surrounded by family and friends, including his wife of fifty-two years, Geri McPhee; his older brother Ernest McPhee of Red Deer; his son Rick McPhee; his daughters, Joanne McPhee (Andrew Gibson), Teri-Lyn McPhee-Deatrich (Troy Deatrich) and Kelly Sawatzky; and three grandchildren, Cassie Deatrich, Mitchel Deatrich and Victoria Gibson-McPhee. He had many other family and friends who loved him dearly and will cherish his memory. He was a lifetime member of the Huntington Hills Community Association and was an avid member of the Curling Club. He was a passionate outdoorsman who spent much of his life fishing and gardening. Among his colleagues he was well-reputed to be a friendly and hardworking man, and he always put his family first.

We would like to extend many thanks to the nurses of Alberta Health Services Homecare and the staff of Agape Hospice for all of their kindness and loving care.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Huntington Hills Community Association in the Curling Lounge (520 78th Avenue N.W., Corner of 78th Avenue and Centre Street, Calgary, AB) on Wednesday, May 18, 2011 at 1:30 p.m. Forward condolences through If friends so desire, in lieu of flowers, memorial tributes in Ron’s honour may be made directly to the Salvation Army, 420 – 9 Avenue SE, Calgary, AB T2G 0R9 Telephone: (403) 410-1111,

    Although I have not seen Ron in more than ten years I recall him so well! I would call him and he would come by my house to sell me a health care policy for the teenager from out of country that we were housing. Ron always had the time to sit on the front porch with me and share his stories! He told me all about cruising, about fishing, about his beautiful family. He gave me, a younger person, some great life lessons. I thought Ron was a wonderful and I know he will be greatly missed. May God Bless you all in your sorrow.
