It is with much sadness that I share with you that Ron Strank has passed away.
Words cannot express how profoundly moved we are by this news and we extend our sincere sympathy to Ron’s family.
Ron has been the very lifeblood of our Edmonton Pickleball Club and indeed the entire Edmonton and surrounding area Pickleball community. His enthusiasm for our chosen sport and his implacable style have shaped the growth of our sport and we are thankful.
When Ron saw that a task needed doing, he didn’t wait for approval or permission. He just went out and did whatever needed doing.
He loved organizing informal groups of Pickleball sessions. Many times he’d text a group “who is in for PB at ….” In this way, he often was the “glue” that held us together.
He was growing particularly fond of PB on Sundays at Royal Gardens at 11:00.
There will be no text from Ron this week so let’s do it for him.
Let’s gather on Sunday (May 13) at 11:00 at Royal Gardens and let’s play for Ron.
