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."
