BARNSDALE, Ralph Mitchell Barnsdale - Obituary | Print |

BARNSDALE, Ralph Mitchell -

(October 10, 1937 - December 19, 2014)

Passed away in Beaverton, Ontario on December 19, 2014, with pancreatic cancer impacting his final days.

Although unfortunate, overcoming constant medical challenges developed into an integral component of his achievements.

In his life he had an ambitious path driven to overcome obstacles and succeed. Starting out from a grass-roots one-room school house in Belhaven, ON,; perpetual effort to learn, work hard, and constantly develop from that point forward provided him the skills necessary for entry and acceptance into a professional career diploma program (Certified Feed Industry Advisor - Guelph University) working with animals, which was a dream come true. He spent many fulfilling years helping Ontario & Alberta farmers develop feed formulations that prevented illness and produced best results at the most reasonable cost, based on algebraic calculations he thought he would never grasp while in school.

Disciplined values in learning and work made for progression into a rewarding career (his passion) as a feed & drug research industry advisor. A man of immense curiosity and intellect, he was charming, stubborn & a comedian. He was a lover of the great outdoors; camera in one hand, binoculars in the other. There were never enough books, magazines, and newspapers to read (avid reader).

The family truly appreciates the love, care, & support from all.  A special Thank-You to Brenda Stewart who was there from beginning to the end. A special Thank-You to Dr. Mc Cordic, Maria, Suzanne/ CCAC Palliative team (Darlene/ Barb/ Francis/ Jenn/ Vera) for their outstanding professional care, compassion, & support.

Service will be held on Sunday, December 21st at the Beacan Presbyterian Church, Beaverton at 1:30 PM.

In lieu of flowers, we request donations to the Beacan Presbyterian Church - Beaverton, or the Cancer Society.
