With a heavy heart, we announce the passing of Ron MacIntyre.  Ron was born February 24, 1930 in Anyox, BC.  Ron’s family relocated to Nelson, BC where he played minor hockey and drums in a dance band.  He played Junior hockey for the Lethbridge Native Sons where his playing rights were claimed by the New York Rangers.

Ron retired from BC Tel after 36 years of service and spent his time golfing with his friends, hunting with his sons and fishing with his brother.  He also enjoyed spending time with family and friends at Christina Lake

Ron leaves behind his wife of 71 years, Kay; his son Lindsay and wife Sharlene of Cranbrook and his son Tom and wife Jeanie of Fernie, BC; his grandson Brett of Vancouver, BC; grandson-in-law Mike Friesen and his great grandson Rowan Friesen of Calgary, Alberta.  He was pre-deceased by his granddaughter Kalsie Friesen.

The family would like to thank Dr. Lunge and Dr. Haiduk, Andrea Wallace, home support ladies and all the staff at the Pines; as well as, special friends Diane and Rich Klekowski.

In honor of Ron’s memory, the family requests donations be made to the Kootenay Wildlife Heritage Trust Fund, P.O. Box 100, Kimberley, B.C.   V1A 2Y5

Relation: Friend

I have fond memories of working for Ron at BC Tel in the 70’s he was a great boss and I enjoyed the time that I worked for him. He wrote me a great letter of recommendation when I quit and moved to Calgary to work for AGT in 1980. Always enjoyed talking to him at functions when I was home visiting. My condolences go out to Lyndsay and Shar, Tom and Jeannie and their families
