He also pushed me into becoming Zone Commander and to take over as representative to the Boys and Girls Club. Mike remembers Ross helping you cater the Xmas dinner for the Crest for many years. I will remember Ross with love and admiration especially considering his passing is just days after Mike's. My thoughts and blessings are with you at this time. Love and best wishes to you and your family. Kathy Patten-Heal
Kori GarsideDeb, It was such a pleasure getting to know and work so closely with your dad over his time at Parkwood. I will fondly remember our trips to Lake Joe together, the laughs we shared and all of the walks we took together each morning. He was always the first to ask how your day was going, and very rarely missed a Physio appt. Sending thoughts to you during this difficult time. But just know the impact he had on the lives of so many. Thinking of you. May he rest in peace.
Heather WilsonMy sincerest condolences to the family of Ross. I met Ross this year at Parkwood. He dined with my father, Fred MacDonald. I enjoyed talking to Ross about his life at the trailer, the Legion, his trips to Lake Joseph and his favourite topic - his family. He was an awesome Bingo player, always showing up early with his "special" cards in hand. You will be missed Ross. Rest in peace.
