WARD, Ronald Harvey

November 17, 1937 – Wainwright, Alberta
September 21, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

Ronald Harvey Ward of Canmore AB was born in Wainwright AB Nov 17, 1937 and passed away Sept 21, 2018 in Calgary AB at the age of 80. Ron passed away after a very brief illness.

Ron was predeceased by his wife Lorraine Smith in 2015 and father Harvey Ward.

Survived by his mother Laverna Wensrich of Kelowna BC; Children: Linda Hill of Chilliwack, Allan (Sheila) Ward of Kelowna, Richard (Donna) Ward of Hinton; grandchildren: Ryan (Keiko Tsuruta) Ward, Ashleigh (Jesse Gander) Ward, Steven (Kaleesha) Roux and Daniel (Kristy Hamson) Roux; great grandchildren: Peyton and Paxton Roux and Atsuki Ward; siblings: Esther (Frank) Badowski, Diane (Murdock) Bowen and Brent (Jeanne) Wensrich. Ron is also survived by former wife and friend, Ruth Ward as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends.

The majority of his work life was with Weldwood Pulp Mill in Hinton. In his retirement Ron continued to work. He was likely to either work as a security guard, or mow greens at a local golf course. He liked to keep busy.

Ron had a passion for horses and motorbikes. He was president and co-founder of the Hinton Bighorn Saddle Club. Ron also loved spending time with family, going for coffee with friends and generally giving people a hard time with his dry sense of humour and boisterous laugh.

Private family service to be held at a later date. Please forward condolences to McInnis & Holloway Funeral Home at www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  1. Joan and Brian Lajeunesse :

    To the Family,

    Our deep condolences for your loss.
    We loved Ron.
    Both of us (Ron and I) were early risers and I would always wave to him as he headed out for coffee early in the morning.
    I always told him when I die, and if I come back as a truck, I’d want to be Ron’s truck. He was always checking over his vehicles (yes vehicles….plural) and did a wonderful job of maintaining and detailing his trucks/cars.
    We spent time visiting back and forth across the street and on our driveways and occasionally I could coax him over for a visit.
    Ron was a wonderful neighbor.
    There is a hole across the street.
    We miss him.

    Sincerely,
    Joan and Brian
