WHALLEY _ Ronald James 1937 - 2007 With overwhelming sadness and broken hearts, we announce the sudden peaceful passing of Ron. Predeceased by his father Norman, sister Maureen and nephew Norman. Ron leaves his loving partner Erma Johnson, his mother Ada Sigley, sister Shirley Sidley (Stan), brother Norman (Margaret), son Stephen Whalley, daughters Rhonda Whalley (Mike), Kim Whalley (Gary) and grandson Colton, as well as numerous nieces and nephews, and many dear close friends. Ron devoted a big part of his life to the sport of Amateur Boxing. To name a few, he was selected to work the Sydney Olympics, 2 Commonwealth Games, and the Pan Am Games, something no other referee and judge in the country has done. He had travelled the world extensively to cover other international events. His personality was larger than life and will be missed by all his friends he has made along the way. Ron was a very hard dedicated worker who had his own business and was a proud Plasterers Union member. Always the vibrant personality and the life of the party, Ron (Dad) will be dearly missed and forever in our hearts. Special thanks to the caring attendants who gave their support to the family at Ron's home. A service and celebration of Ron's life will be held Saturday, June 9, 2007 at 1:00 p.m. at the Delta Funeral Home, 5329 Ladner Trunk Road, Delta, B.C. 604-946-6040. If you wish, in lieu of flowers donations may be made to The Boxing BC Scholarship Fund, 250 South Willingdon Ave., Burnaby, BC V5C 5E9.
