Robert William Ross
September 25, 1939 – August 27, 2014
It is with deep sadness and regret the Ross family announces Robert’s (Bob’s) passing.
Bob was predeceased by his wife Arlene, infant son James, father Wally and mother Murge.
Bob is survived by his devoted sons Don and Graham, his grandchildren Christopher and Kara, his sister Bev, his brother Ken and numerous relatives and friends.
Bob will be remembered as a colourful storyteller and generous person who loved spending time with his children and grandchildren. Family was everything to Bob and he always put their needs ahead of his own. A career Lumber Broker, Bob made many friends over a 40 year span, many of whom he stayed in touch with into retirement. Bob had a passion for sports of all kinds and began coaching Little League baseball in the early 1960s which was followed by soccer upon the arrival of his sons. Harness racing was also one of Bob’s favourite pastimes, having owned and bred numerous Standardbred race horses.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date. No service by request. In lieu of flowers, please make donations to BC Standardbred Horse Adoption Society at www.greener-pastures.ca
