ABOA Life Member Ron Bercov Passes
ABOA is mourning the death of one of its Life Members,
Ron Bercov, of Edmonton on April 4. The following email was sent to members of EBOA:

"It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the passing of Ron Bercov , a long serving member of the EBOA. Many of you know Ron in many roles with the EBOA, most recently as a CIS/ACAC Evaluator. He had officiated at the CIAU[CIS] and ACAC level for many years prior to his on court retirement.

He served the University of Alberta for 41 years, five as Associate Vice-President (Academic) and three on the Board of Governors. He was president of the Canadian Association of University Teachers and vice-president of the Canadian Mathematics Society and editor of its bulletin. He was also chair of the Alberta Universities Pension Board. Ron Bercov is a 2004 recipient of the University of Alberta Alumni Association's Honour Award.

A university, college, high school, and wheelchair basketball official, he has refereed three national championship tournaments and four wheelchair basketball nationals. In 2002, he received the Canadian Association of Basketball Officials [CABO] Wink Willox Award for improving officiating in Alberta. Ron was also a Honorary Life Member of both the EBOA & ABOA.

Our deepest sympathies are with his wife, Marcia, and his many friends and relatives."

Sincerely,
Leo Mangano
EBOA President

ABOA is proud of the accomplishments of all our members, from regular season games & tournaments in rural communities throughout Alberta, to ASAA & ACAC Provincial Championships, to the excellent performances of all our officials who leave our province to referee National Championships. We keep updated records under the 'Assignments' tab on these selections from year to year. ABOA also believes that achieving a FIBA Card, for selection to International Tournaments, is a unique and noteworthy accomplishment. We are proud of these officials who received their FIBA Cards in 2012 & 2013: Matt Kallio, Stephanie Nordlee (2012) and Ryley Kerrison (2013).
