About Ron Bate
Ron Bate was a Director and Corporate Secretary of the Windsor City Centre Credit Union for 22 years. He died suddenly, on his way home from an Executive meeting on January 16, 2003. Ron was one of the Credit Union’s most dedicated Directors and was a strong advocate of the Credit Union system. He was usually the first to arrive and the last to leave meetings, and his decisions would always lean towards what was best for the Members.
Married to Diane Holman, Ron was also a father and grandfather. He retired in October 2001, from the City of Windsor as an Operations Supervisor with the Public Works Department after 35 years. He was an avid model railroader and refereed many levels of professional, and minor hockey. He also had a humorous side and would entertain, sometimes unknowingly, with his way with words, witticisms and thought provoking sayings. Not only did we lose a good friend, the Credit Union lost a great Director.
The Ron Bate Scholarship was created to honour his legacy and devotion to the Credit Union.
