Ronald Shulhan Obituary

Born in 1935, Cherhill, Alberta, Ron passed away peacefully of natural causes in Parksville, BC, January 21, 2024.  

He will be deeply missed by his wife of 63 years Geraldine, his son Steven (wife Gwen), his daughters Janice (husband Albert and son Jason) and Gayla (husband Clarke), granddaughter Kiersten (partner Matthew), his two remaining sisters Mary and Alice, and his large extended family and friends. Ron was predeceased by three siblings: Olga, Stanley, Victoria.  

Ron was well known for his sense of humour (how he loved to tease and be teased!), his strong work ethic, his love of family, and his dedication to the community. He taught high school mathematics for over 30 years in the district of Maple Ridge / Pitt Meadows. As a teacher representative and President of the MRTA for many years, he was a strong advocate for students and teachers. He cared deeply for his students, and tutored many on the side to help them be successful. He led many community events as a member of the Maple Ridge Lions Club.  

After retiring to the Okanagan, he took on the role of President of the Oliver Seniors Centre for 10 years, keeping the facility running like a well-oiled machine. Ron and Gerry spent many years Square Dancing, promoting that activity as a good way to stay active physically and socially.  

Everywhere he went, he made friends, always a good listener and willing to help with any task.  

You will be greatly missed, Ron.
