Longtime Edgewater resident and leader Ronald D. Allison passed away July 22 in Rio Rancho, New Mexico. Ron was very involved in the Edgewater community and was behind the construction of the Edgewater Police Station and Citizen’s Park. He also served as Edgewater Mayor and was a volunteer fire fighter. Ron and his wife Bonnie also published the Edgewater Tribune starting in 1982.
The Colorado Editor said in August 1991:
When you have a State Senator and a Mayor in the same household, one would think that there’d be enough crises and telephone calls to satisfy anyone. But for Mayor Ron and Senator Bonnie Allison, that wasn’t enough. They started their own newspaper which has been published both biweekly and weekly for ten years. The mini-tabloid newspaper restricts its content to the community of Edgewater….
Memorial service and inurnment will be July 28, 2 pm, at St. John’s Episcopal Cathedral, 1350 Washington St., Denver.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Allison family.
