COLE, Ronald Denis
On the morning of 17 January, Ronald Denis COLE passed away peacefully at his home in Oakville, Ontario, surrounded by family and Friends. A good man, he was considerate, wise, full of integrity and truth. Sang out of tune, but had the makings of Johnny Cash. Born 15 Feb 1942 in Wilkie, Saskatchewan to Norman COLE and Myrtle (née) INKSTER. Life led him to Uni. of Saskatchewan, a career in the Air Force, an MBA at Sherbrooke University, and then to Europe where he met and married Hazel (née) EGAN ('I think I'll marry you!'). They lived in Paris, France until a job at Xerox brought the family back to Canada, to Montreal in 1977. 10 years later Ron became Chief Executive Officer of Hawker Siddeley and the family moved to Oakville, Ontario. Equally important, Ron joined the Mississaugua Golf Club in 1989 and became a member of the 'Tuesday golfers'. Pre-deceased by his brother Allan INKSTER and sister Doreen COLE, he will be sadly missed by his wife Hazel children Sandra (Svenn), Robert (Isabelle) and Jacky; family Donna, Greg (Andrea) and Lee INKSTER; and Friends. Thank-you to the physicians and staff at Peel Regional Cancer Centre and the palliative care team in Oakville - the healthcare Ron had was exemplary. A memorial service will be held Monday, January 21 at the Mississaugua Golf Club, Mississauga. Ron's family will receive Friends at noon, with a memorial service starting at 12: 30 p.m. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Credit Valley Hospital Foundation Cancer Centre. 'Le Grand Philosophe' will live on in our memories.

COLE, Ronald
Father, serviceman, Chief Executive Officer, writer, philosopher. Born February 15, 1942, in Wilkie, Saskatchewan. Died January 17 in Oakville, Ontario, of cancer, aged 65.
By Robert COLE, Page L6
Reflecting on his life at 60, Ron wrote: "Few are those who walk on water; most of us are simply fortunate enough to find stones that someone else has placed in life's pond and tread on them when the need arises."
Ron's ancestors settled around Wilkie, Saskatchewan., to farm. His interests, however, lay beyond the Prairies. With the help of the Royal Canadian Air Force he earned a degree at the University of Saskatchewan, not in history, as he would have liked, but in commerce as was preferred by the air force. This launched a 30-year career at Molson, International Business Machines Corporation, Xerox and as president of both CGTX and Hawker Siddeley Canada.
Along with teaching Ron the value of a well shone pair of shoes, the Royal Canadian Air Force afforded him the opportunity to travel around Europe, from the bars of Spain to the ski hills of Switzerland. This was where he met the love of his life, Hazel EGAN, in the winter of 1971. Ever a man to spot a good deal, he wrapped up his life in Montreal, moved to Paris and was married within the year.
Ron's love of the finer things in life meant the French lifestyle suited him well. However, when a job transfer arose he was quick to take it, moving his family back to Montreal in 1977.
Back in Canada, he met the other great love of his life, golf, a sport he took up at 40. Never a natural, he nonetheless developed a deadly short game that made him the scourge of his Tuesday night golf group.
A hostile takeover in 1993 ended Ron's business career prematurely. The year of reflection that followed determined the course of his last 14 years, as he abandoned his job search to take up the pen.
He had always loved a good thriller novel - resulting perhaps from an early brush with Cold War espionage in the form of a beautiful Fräulein whom the military police would later arrest as an East German agent. At age 55, Ron set out to write his first book. He wrote two full-length novels tracing the adventures of the steely Robert Fraser and his quest for vengeful justice. Sadly, neither ever saw a printing press, owing to the thin market for Canadian thriller novels.
The last few years of Ron's life were happy ones as he typed away in his office, got his clubs out at every available opportunity and travelled to France, Vietnam, Guatemala and the golf courses of Ireland.
Ron never paid much mind to those things he viewed as inevitable. When the prognosis of cancer came last year, he managed it with his characteristic resolve. He chose to die as he had lived, taking what stones life laid in front of him and walking on to whatever was to come without fear or hesitation.
Robert COLE is Ron's son.
