MACLEOD, Ronald Bruce It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of Ron MacLeod on Friday, April 25th. He was 84 years old. Born and raised in Victoria, Ronald Bruce MacLeod enjoyed regaling friends with stories of his adventuresome youth with brothers Stu and Don. Ron enjoyed many sports; he was an avid baseball and soccer player. His focus became golf, which also became a life-long career and passion. Ron was a member of the CPGA and spent his early years playing tours events. However, his greatest love was being the Head Professional at Jasper Park Lodge for 42 years. It allowed him to spend more time with his beloved wife Sonia and children Bradley, Lauren, Arthur and Sharon. His extended family included his "pro-shop boys" who affectionately called him "Bomber." Ron is survived by his wife, children, brother Donald MacLeod, son-in-law Robert Hotte and grandson Ryan Hotte. He follows siblings Stuart MacLeod, Lalia Wilkinson and Marguerite Howard. In lieu of flowers, please make donations in support of brain cancer research or a favorite charity. Ron was an avid supporter of several charities during his lifetime. Ron was a man full of life, and he enjoyed it immensely. He enjoyed a good cocktail, a hot bowl of soup and joking with his family and friends. He will be missed, but his stories will live on. A Celebration of Life will be held at the Uplands Golf Club on Saturday, May 31, 2014 at 2:00 pm. Condolences may be offered to the family at www.mccallbros.com.
