Ron Keer’s memory lives on at Bobby Burns Fish Pond

By Tyler Ryan

Before his passing, Ron Keer would visit Bobby Burns Fish Pond daily to keep the park in tip-top shape for other visitors.  

Mr. Keer was a long-standing member of the Royal Canadian Legion with over 50 years of service.  

Last Thursday, members of the Legion’s Pincher Creek branch unveiled a park bench, built in memory of Mr. Keer, to his widow, Margaret.

“Once he retired from working, then this was his project,” she said, gesturing to the park. “He didn’t fish but he would come feed the fish and mow the lawns.”

“I always expected to hear that he had rolled into the pond going on the slope,” she added with a laugh.

Pincher Creek Legion service officer Lorne Pultz started building the bench last summer, occasionally spending two or three hours a day on the project.
