Obituary

Brooksville, FL. – Ronald E. McAllister, 71, of Jay, Maine and Brooksville, Florida, passed away surrounded by his family on Christmas Day, December 25, 2018, at the Oak Hill Hospital in Brooksville, Florida. He was born September 18, 1947, in Farmington, the son of Elywin McAllister and Leanese (Robbins) McAllister. He was a 1965 graduate of Farmington High School. On November 1, 1969, at Bean’s Corner Church, he married Pamela Bubier of Jay.
Sports were a very important part of Ron’s life. He started playing Little League Baseball in Strong, Maine. Some of his teammates from then were a part of his future teams for the Strong Town Team Baseball and as time passed, they moved on to softball, with even some slow-pitch softball thrown in. One of his proudest moments in sports was receiving an MVP award for a slow-pitch tournament in Stratton; he had a fantastic weekend pitching and hitting.
Other interests included bowling, snowmobiling (with many memorable trips throughout Maine and into Canada) and watching stock car racing at racetracks from North Carolina to Nova Scotia and many points in between. A “ride along” at Daytona International Speedway was a special racing treat for him.
One of his best sports memories was in 1976 when he and other friends from Strong drove a motorhome to Montreal, Canada, to see the Summer Olympics. Muhammad Ali was one of the athletes who he especially remembered seeing.
As many know, as Ronnie aged, a 4-letter word became the center of his sports world – GOLF! He just loved golf. He played with his father, his father-in-law, his son, many friends, the “Northern Tour,” the “Wednesday Travel League,” and in Florida he only got to play on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, unless there was another day he could fit in.
After graduating from the University of Maine in Orono in 1969, he worked in the accounting field with various companies in the Farmington area, until he decided to go on his own in the early 1980s, when he opened McAllister Accounting and Tax Services. Later, his son, Marcus, joined him in the practice. Even though Ronnie was supposedly retired, he was still doing taxes.
The family is very proud of Ron’s commitment to helping. When his kids were young he coached baseball and soccer for AYS. Over the years he served as Treasurer of the Wilson Lake Country Club, Jay-Niles Memorial Library, and Foothills Land Conservancy. He was a member of the Maine Association of Professional Accountants, serving as President for two years. He was actively involved with Otis Federal Credit Union: In 1995, he joined the Supervisory Committee and served until 2005, when he joined the Board of Directors; he served as Chairman of the Board from 2008 until 2013, and was still a current member of the Board. In all, he served 23 years for the Credit Union.
Survivors include his wife of 49 years, Pamela; his son Marcus, and daughter-in-law, Angela; his daughter, Marcia, and her friend, Donald Osier. He also leaves his favorite grandson and granddaughter, Liam and Ashlin McAllister. He also leaves a sister, Nancy, and her husband Lester “Mick” Lawrence of McAlpin, Florida. He was predeceased by his parents, Elywin and Leanese McAllister.
The family would like to extend special thanks to the ICU nurses at Oak Hill Hospital and especially to Ron and Pam’s friends in Sylvan Grove, who were so helpful to the whole family.
Ronald E. McAllister, 71 of Jay, Maine and Brooksville, FL. Funeral service will be held 1PM, Saturday, January 5th at FINLEY FUNERAL HOME, 15 Church Street, Livermore Falls, Maine. Visitation will be held 4-7PM on Friday, January 4th at the funeral home. Interment at a later date at Fairview Cemetery, Farmington, Maine.

To our dear friend Pam, we wished we were there with you. Ron was a great guy and no one knows that better than you. We dearly loved his friendship as we do yours. Florida won’t be same same without you two and no one will will be able to take your place. No one really dies as long as they took the time to leave us with fond memories. You both have sure done that in Sylvan Grove. We will mis Ron but we hope you won’t be a stranger and come visit us in Florida! Love you dearly!
