Ron, 91, died peacefully at his home of 50 years on Bloomingdale Terrace, Halifax, Nova Scotia on May 20, 2008 surrounded by his loving family. Ron will be deeply missed by his cherished wife, the former Patricia McColough, son-in-law Bill Presse, husband of Ron’s eldest daughter Barbara, who predeceased him in 2005, and children Suzanne (Don Presse), Mary Beth (Adam Antczak), Ian (Gail Hogan), Mark (Anita Lorelli) and Jennifer (Sergei Shirokov), and grandchildren Andrew, Nick, Allison, Barbara, Ian, Elizabeth, Stuart, Claire, Duncan, Kate, Kevin, Jack, Julia and Jacqueline, and by sisters Ruth, Mona and Eleanor.
Ron was beloved by many for much but was primarily defined by his love of family. He said marrying his wife Patricia 60 years ago was the smartest thing he ever did. Every day, he was uplifted and fulfilled by the love and devotion of his wife and children. Ron treasured his 14 grandchildren, sharing his love of literature and poetry with them, taking pride in their accomplishments and providing them with endless hours of fun at the family cottage in Queensland.
Throughout his long and prolific life, Ron made immeasurable contributions to his city and country. Professionally, he was an optometrist who owned and operated Wallace Optometrists. He was also an accomplished athlete, elected to the Canadian Boxing Hall of Fame for his many boxing accomplishments. In 1937, he was the Maritime Middleweight and Light-Heavyweight Inter-Collegiate Boxing Champion and Maritime Open Middleweight Champion. Ron also contributed his leadership and talents to military service, graduating from Royal Roads Naval Academy and serving as Gunnery Officer on HMCS Dunvegan in the North Atlantic, and HMCS Loch Morlich in the English Channel from 1942-1945.
Outside of family, Ron’s deepest passion was for politics and community service. He was the Liberal MLA for Halifax Citadel from 1970-78 and the longest-serving Mayor of Halifax, elected for four terms from 1980-91. Ron also left a lasting legacy for his community as a founding board member of Pier 21, and as a board member of the Discovery Centre, Old Burial Grounds and Waegwoltic Club. He also served as Honourary Vice President of the Canadian Red Cross Society, Chair of the capital campaign for construction of St. Thomas Aquinas Church and St. Vincent ’s Guest House. He was public relations coordinator for the United Appeal and the Knights of Columbus. For his remarkable public service and leadership, Ron was named a Member of the Order of Canada in 2001, and awarded an Honourary Doctor of Laws Degree from Saint Mary’s University in 1995. Ron firmly believed that: “Life is God’s gift to you. The way you live your life is your gift to God.” Ron’s life was indeed a great gift to God, as well as to his family, who were so blessed by his unending devotion, and to the many, many people whose lives he touched.
Ron’s family expresses their sincere gratitude to Dr. Kenneth Rockwood, his team and the staff of Unit 8.4 of the Halifax Infirmary.
