I have had the privilege of knowing and working with Ross for 20 some years. I have kicked him out of 2 offices, broken countless systems and computers and generally driven him nuts. Despite this, he was an exceptionally kind man, generous with his time and always helpful, great for a hug and abpep talk when needed. He liked to sing and was forever serenading me and many of the girls with one song or another. He will be truly missedJanuary 22, 2019
We are not in contact, but we are close family. I am Ross first cousin (Ross’s father and my dad were very close brother). Our very deep sympathies for your lost. My name is Allen McCoubrey and my wife Micheline.January 22, 2019
To Karen & Family and Melvin,January 23, 2019
We are very saddened to hear that Ross has passed. We have not seen Ross for many years and we’re looking forward to seeing him in February when we visit Australia. I enjoyed sharing great times with Ross when we were younger. We played football together at QHS, fished together at Clun Nicole and partied at Bishop’s University and
in Valcartier. Wendy and I knew Ross and know he was a really good guy! We will miss him. Our condolences to you, your family and to Melvin and his family.

My most sincerest condolences to you and your family. I am Ross’s first cousin. My father and his father were brothers and we lived across the road from each other. I am sure that Ross is in Paradise and surrounded by Jesus and loved ones. Take care.January 26, 2019
I want to express my sincere and heartfelt sympathy to Karen and Ross’s children. Ross was so much part of our family growing up. Ross’s mom and my mom were sisters. I remember when Ross would visit our home on many Saturdays, he would sit in the living room for hours and read the encyclopedias. I have wonderful memories of a wonderful, kind cousin. May you rest in peace. Shirley McKinley Neville and husband Bill Neville, London, Ontario, CanadaJanuary 26, 2019

Ross has found his eternal resting place.

I’ve had the great good fortune to have worked very closely with Ross, mostly as a team of two, over the last 19 odd years. He was not just a work mate, he was also a best mate. Ross had so many positive sayings…too many for here…but they all demonstrated a person of deep humility, positive thought, quiet wisdom and a deep spirituality. In all the years I have known Ross he has never said a bad word about anyone. I, and all Ross’ work mates are richer for having known him, and we all feel his loss. I am grateful to Ross for all his support to me over the years. Thanks to all his family for sharing Ross with us.January 29, 2019
A cherished and longtime friend of Lynette Pattison and family so sorry we couldn’t get to say goodbye but you will always be loved and remembered.
I am the resurrection and the lifeJanuary 29, 2019
