November 10, 2020 4 Condolences Print Obituary
It is with profound sadness we announce the passing of Ron Wolsey on November 6, 2020, at the age of 81.
Much loved father of Cathy (Tony), Vicky, Michael, Patrick and Danny (Dawn Marie). Cherished grandfather of Darby, Addison and Grady. Ron's dedication to public service spanned more than five decades, beginning with a distinguished 25 year career in the RCMP. Thereafter he worked tirelessly as the Executive Director of Alberta Dangerous Goods Control and, later, Emergency Management Alberta.
He was proud of his pioneering work in the field of emergency response, with many of the systems put in place in his time providing the safety framework Albertans have relied on to this day.
A loving father, Ron will be fondly remembered as a fan of hockey, as well as for his wisdom, work ethic and dry sense of humor.
  1. I am saddened by Ron’s passing. He was a great boss and fun to work for – I spent many years under his tutelage at Alberta Emergency Management. My condolences to your family.

  2. I count Ron as my first leader and mentor in the Alberta public service and as a good friend who was there for me over significant family situations.

    So sorry to hear of his passing. I hope he had some quality time in his country haven.

  3. I am saddened to hear of Ron’s passing. My condolences to his family.

    It was a privilege to have had Ron as my Executive Director. I found Ron to be an excellent teacher and mentor with a strong commitment to public service. Ron served Albertans in a professional and caring manner in the aftermath of disasters and major emergencies, and during the long days of recovery.

  4. My belated but sincere sympathies to Ron’s family. I considered myself lucky to have worked with Ron in APSS’ executive office. His sense of humour, his kindness and his dedication to his job were appreciated by those of us who worked closely with him, especially during some very stressful disaster events. May he rest in peace now.
