Capt. Ron Dubsky, Michigan Charter Boat Association Executive Secretary passed away unexpectedly at his home in Romulus Tuesday morning, August 11, 2015. A recipient of the MCBA Award in 2009, Capt. Dubsky said, “I love this organization, and I’m humbled by the award.” Capt. Dubsky has been an MCBA member for well over 20 years, serving on the Board of Directors as Secretary, and most recently as Executive Secretary in charge of membership.
Capt. Dubsky was an Army veteran, a General Motors employee for 10 years, a 34th district Court Officer from 1970-1991, and a charter boat captain from 1970-2000. Before coming to MCBA, he was in charge of the drug program for the Lake Erie Charter Boat Association.
Capt. Dubsky loved spending time with his grandchildren, Jared and Jordan. Always an outdoorsman, in later years he became an avid bird watcher and enjoyed keeping his numerous feeders full.
His wife Carole, daughter Janice Cusmano, Sister Linda, and grandsons Jared and Jordan survive Capt. Dubsky. His wishes after death were cremation and to have his ashes spread on his beloved Lake Erie, where he ran Ice Breaker Charters II for so many years. A memorial service may be held at a later date.

Capt. Dubsky will be greatly missed by all of his MCBA family.Respectfully,
Capt. Terry R. Walsh
