Ronald "Ron" Milton
April 10th, 1937 - October 23rd, 2019

It is with great sadness that the family announce Ron's passing on October 23, 2019 age 82 at the Black Diamond Oilfields Hospital after a brief battle with cancer. Ron was born on April 10th, 1937 in Lethbridge, Alberta. Ron is survived by his sons Randy of Donnelly, AB, Richard (Cindy) & Rod (Monica) of Calgary, five grandchildren, Joshua, Zachary, Carter, Melissa, Stephen and four great-grandchildren, John, Nick, Grace & Max and his partner Lyn Fitzmaurice. Ron was predeceased by his wife of 54+ years Deanna (Cotton) and his parents Reginald and Annie (Brigden) Milton.

Ron retired from TELUS (AGT) in 1991 after thirty-four plus years working across Alberta. While working at AGT Ron was the President of the Telephone Pioneers of America. Ron and Deanna retired to Turner Valley in 1993 to be closer to the Turner Valley Golf Club. Ron was an avid player and spent many summer months on the course and had played and won in several tournaments. Ron and Deanna loved to travel to California and their favourite spot was in La Jolla. Ron and Deanna eventually bought a mobile home in Hemet California and spent many winters enjoying golf and visiting with friends. After Deanna’s passing in 2012 Ron found his way to the Okotoks Senior Club where he met Lyn. Ron and Lyn were active in the Okotoks Senior Club and Ron still enjoyed golf. Ron and Lyn enjoyed four short years together full of fun and companionship.

A celebration of life service will be held at the Foothills Centennial Centre – Smith Room, 4 – 204 Community Way, Okotoks, AB on Thursday, October 31st, 2019 at 3:00 pm. Pastor Julia Kimmett will be officiating. Family and friends are invited for refreshments and to further remember Ron immediately following the service at the Centennial Centre.

Special thanks to the staff, Doctors and Nurses at the Palliative Care in the Black Diamond Oilfields Hospital, who took special care of Ron in his last days. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to either the Tom Baker Cancer Centre 1331 - 29 Street NW, Calgary, Alberta T2N 4N2 or the Sheep River Health Trust 403 – 995- 5400.

Randy, Richard, Rod and Lynn.
We are so sorry for your loss. Ron will be missed. Ron was a very kind man.
We will miss him on the course. He is now up there with Dad (Doug McNeil) playing golf everyday, and fighting over the squirrel.
We played a game of golf on Oct 25th for Ron. Take care of yourselves.
Love Tim McNeil & Jackie Davis

Randy, Richard, Rod and Lynn.
Please accept our most heartfelt condolences on your loss.
Jen and I are saddened beyond words at Ron's passing. He will be in our hearts and minds for years to come. I will miss him sorely when I next tee up the golf ball and will miss his unique perspective on the game he loved so much.
Words expressed by others who knew him come readily to mind. "He was a Gem of a man." "He was reliable as the daybreak." "You always knew where Ron stood. He didn't mince words." "Ron was kindness itself."
