December 29, 1964 – March 25, 2013
It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Ronald “Ron” Carey Williams. Ron had a long hard three year battle with cancer, a battle fought not just with great courage but with humour. Ron was a source of inspiration to his loved ones as he maintained his dignity and considerable sense of humour in the face of these painful trials.
Ron was born in Taber, AB on December 29th 1964. Ron had many passions in his life including motorcycles, cars, trucks, flying, travelling to Japan, and the classic comedy of Monty Python, Fawlty Towers, and Johnny Carson. Ron spent the majority of his working life in the travel and tourism industry driving and guiding people throughout western Canada and the United States. Ron worked with Brewster, Traxx, MTR, and Brewster once again; through his career he came into contact with so many people and counts many as life-long friends. In addition to this, Ron also had a career in Real Estate.
Ron is survived by his parents Dave and Elaine Williams of Calgary; his sister Latrisha Williams of Los Angeles; brother Troy; sister-in-law Kathy; niece Juliet; nephew Tristan Williams of Calgary; and numerous grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, and other relatives. Ron’s passing is also a great loss to his special friend Corisa Rose of Toronto, and great friend Rick Lang of Canmore. Ron was predeceased by his grandparents Jim and Florence Graham of Taber and Lucy Duncombe of Raymond.
