After an intense battle with cancer, Ron Maufort died at home on his own terms on Dec. 20, 2023, with the love and support of his friends and family.

Ron’s love of ranching in the Porcupine Hills was far more than just an occupation to him. The farming lifestyle and the people in this area tied Ron to this land in a very special and compelling way.

Ron spent many years as an eligible bachelor, but later married Marilyn. They enjoyed a very full and rewarding family life filled with kids’ sports, family gatherings and sweet grandchildren.

Ron had a passion for sports and enjoyed being competitive. He could certainly swing a golf club with a vengeance! Ron played hockey with the Cowley Lundbreck Weasels, local baseball and loved to golf with Marilyn.

He was renowned for his outrageous sense of humour. Laughing was a daily part of life for Ron and he was a huge fan of Gary Larson cartoons and ironic memes.

Ron will be remembered by all for his friendship and willingness to help out a fellow rancher in need, teaching kids to drive trucks and shoot gophers, as well as being the life of the party.

Ron has had a tremendously positive impact on the lives of his family and friends. He was a deeply idealistic man who valued honesty, integrity, responsibility and peace. He will be dearly missed and always fondly remembered.
