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, his children, friends and relatives..

The Memorial Service will be held:

Date:           Sunday April 6 at 2pm

Location:   Jewish Chapel: 12313-105 Avenue

It is with a heavy heart that I must inform you of the sudden passing of Angie Celino, a long time member of the EBOA.

Many of you know Angie as a passionate, committed, and caring friend. She has given so much to the development of our young Officials and has excelled on the court at the ACAC level. Her great smile will be dearly missed by all!

Our deepest sympathies are with Angie’s family and friends. Please take a moment this Thanksgiving weekend to remember a great woman.

A Memorial Page has been created for Angie Celino on the the ilasting.com website.

Members are encouraged to share their thoughts, stories, and photos of Angie on this site.


You are also encouraged to send photos directly to Kristenkwiatek@gmail.com for the Tribute Photo Album.
