Ron Seabrook 1944 – 2024
Ronald Albert Seabrook passed away peacefully on January 25th at the age of 79, with his family by his side. Ron was predeceased by his parents, Albert and Nellie Seabrook, his brother Larry Seabrook and his nephew Jay MacDonald.
Ron is survived by his loving wife of 39 years, Colline Seabrook, his sons, Sean Seabrook of Lethbridge, AB and Shawn (Tara) Seabrook of Cremona, AB, his beloved daughter, Aletha-Jean (A.J.) Seabrook of Canmore and grandchildren, Conar (Allison), Morgan and Corbin Seabrook.
Ron was born in Heward, Saskatchewan and was raised on the family farm. He loved to tell the story of how he rode his horse to the one room schoolhouse. He moved to Calgary in 1968, then on to Chestermere and finally to Canmore in 1995. He was a successful Real Estate Agent in both Calgary and Canmore for 47 years. He also helped his wife Colline run their Bed & Breakfast. Through both, he developed many long-term friendships. He loved chatting with everyone, discussing everything from antiques, history, world affairs, family genealogy or whatever interesting topic came up.
Whenever the opportunity presented itself, he could be found driving through the mountains with Colline and A.J. in their PT Cruiser convertible, stopping for walks and picnics. He was a hard-core hockey fan and although he stopped curling many years ago, he never missed a game on TV.
Ron’s family would like to thank the nurses, doctors and staff of the Acute Care and Cancer Units of the Canmore Hospital.
A memorial open house will be held at the family’s home, 168 Carey, Canmore, to celebrate Ron’s life on Tuesday, February 13 from 12:00 – 4:00 pm.
